Maybe I'm a lush but I'm getting to the point in my pregnancy where I'm super sad I can't have an adult beverage. I watched my wife and mother with deep envy and resentment as they downed bottle after bottle of prosecco at our family Christmas party this weekend while I sipped a La Croix. NOT satisfying.
So I'm wondering what - if anything - you've discovered that takes some of the pain away, particularly during the holidays when delicious libations abound and we can't partake at all. Glorious dark beers, complex red wines, eggnog with a shot of Maker's Mark, bubbly champagne at New Years... *weep*
I found a near-beer that's okay. It's made by Guinness and it's called Kaliber. If it's super cold it kind of tastes like a Coors Light. It's acceptable relative to the other crap on the market like O'Doole's.
Please share any drink ideas that make the holidays feel more festive and fun! I'm normally fine with not drinking but not when everyone else around me is getting tipsy and I can't participate Thank goodness I won't be KU in the summer - I love summer drinks soooooooo much and it was miserable watching everyone else drink them without me during my last pregnancy.
