Having been pregnant for the last nine months, I occasionally find myself wishing I could indulge in a fun, colorful drink, especially now that these hot, summer months are upon us. Luckily, I stumbled upon the most refreshing (and low calorie!) Pineapple-Orange Sparkler in River Road Recipes III, A Healthy Collection. As an added bonus, the ginger ale in this recipe may help relieve morning sickness! Knowing quite a few other ladies in my position, I couldn’t resist sharing this delicious “mocktail.”
