Come Party With Me: Baby Shower — Drinks

At a baby shower, it's incredibly important to have a nonalcholic specialty drink. That way the mother-to-be can join in the festivities. For Denise's baby shower brunch, I'll offer guests mimosas and spiced pomegranate sparklers.

The concoction is made with a cinnamon-spiced pomegranate juice and sparkling water. Do take the time to make the garnish — frozen whole cranberries — because it's a lovely addition to the drink.

Also have an assortment of juice, coffee, and tea on hand. To get the refreshing recipe to the sparkling mocktail,

They sound delicious. I think recipes for non-alcoholic drinks try just as hard as cocktail books, if not more, to make up for the lack of alcohol. But a tasty drink is a tasty drink — whatever is inside.
