For me, one of the most mind-bending things when pregnancy comes as a surprise was giving up a few different items at the drop of a hat. I know many people, when they are actively trying, rid their lives of toxins well before the baby is actually conceived but for me, it wasn't that way at all. In fact, I'm fairly certain the night before I found out, I ate a lovely pizza smothered with blue cheese and washed it down with a half bottle of wine. But the next day, it was all gone. It was an obvious choice but I think because I wasn't mentally prepared, I still miss things here and there, especially during the holidays.

This ginger lime fizz is my stand-in holiday beverage this year and let me tell you, it's delicious. I actually had this drink at a local restaurant and after looking at the ingredients, I realized this was an easy thing to make at home with three simple ingredients: ginger beer, sparkling water, and lime juice.  Ginger beer isn't actually beer (think root beer) and is different from ginger ale. Ginger ale is more like soda- water and sugar, while ginger beer is fermented. This fermentation process means the ginger beer has a stronger ginger flavor (which is super great if you love ginger.)

Of course, if you aren't pregnant and would like a bit of zing to your drink, I'd recommend a good gin to go with the ginger/lime flavor. Also, make sure you use fresh lime juice and not the stuff in bottles (the fresh lime juice really makes the difference!) I've also been occasionally making this with lemon juice as well. It's citrus season, so I feel like I can't go wrong!

  1. this sounds delicious! Alcohol really affects my blood sugar (diabetic) so I am constantly looking for fun recipes for the festive season that arent alcoholic. thanks!

  2. Be careful because there are alcoholic Ginger Beers on the market. Crabbies from England and Sprechers makes one, also.if your not pregnant these are delicious with vodka, ginger beer and a twist of lime.....a Moscow Mule. Yummy.

  3. It is kind of weird that all of a sudden you go from a sushi-eating, wine-drinking, runny yolk-eating person to...not. I would definitely miss the random drinks and beers. But not if I had this ginger beer drink in front of me! i love the stuff.

  4. This is a bomb concoction. The kid loved it. And I did, too. A keeper.
