11 Best Pregnancy Mocktails
Pregnancy is never easy.
For 9 straight months, your body undergoes some incredible changes. And along with those changes there tends to be varying degrees of discomfort. The aches. The pains. The trouble sleeping. Your body goes through so much when it’s bringing a child into this world.
Making matters even more challenging is the fact that many of your favorite foods and drinks are off limits while your little one is growing inside. And while all the sacrifices are completely worth it from the moment you first get to say hello to your new baby, there can be some day-to-day frustration with all that you have to give up and tolerate while pregnant.
That’s why we’re here to help – at least with the drinks.
Though you’ll go 9 months without alcohol during your pregnancy, that doesn’t mean you should be stuck sipping a sad soda water and lime. These days, there is an incredible selection of non-alcoholic mocktails you can drink while pregnant. Best of all, with the rise in delicious non-alcoholic spirits (and these amazing 100% alcohol-free cocktail bitters), these pregnancy mocktails taste as good as their alcoholic counterparts!
With that, let’s get you sipping on something special. Read on for our list of the 11 Best Mocktails for Pregnancy.

Many pregnancy mocktails – especially those of a tropical nature – can be overly sweet. But our Lyre’s Non-Alcoholic Jungle Bird Cocktail Recipe uses two different non-alcoholic spirits - Lyre's Italian Orange and Lyre's Dark Cane Spirit - to bring a slightly bitter, slightly spicy taste to this tropical mocktail, making it the perfect alternative to those sugar bombs you’re used to.
