A recent trend in events is to choose a Signature Cocktail to accent the theme. This is great for weddings or bridal showers, but what about baby shower drinks? Most planners drop alcoholic beverages from the baby shower menu out of sympathy for the mom-to-be, but consider featuring a Signature Mocktail that everyone can enjoy. See our recipes below for Babylove, Lullaby, and Apple of My Eye mocktails, and take a look at our matching lip balm favors in these inspired baby theme flavors!
1 1/2 oz coconut milk
3/4 oz cream
2 oz pineapple juice
3/4 oz banana syrup
Shake over crushed ice, then strain into a collins glass. Fill with crushed ice, slice banana onto the top and serve.
2 oz apple juice
1/3 oz black currant syrup
1 oz whipping cream
Blend with crushed ice and serve in an old-fashioned glass, sprinkled with nutmeg or cinnamon. Don’t forget the straws!
12 oz orange juice
4 oz sweet and sour mix
4 scoops vanilla ice cream
Blend all ingredients until slushy. Pour into margarita glasses and serve with orange slices.

Oh my goodness, I’m not having a baby, but if I was, I’d need a dozen of each. Let me see, I’m intrigued by the black currant. I’ve never had banana syrup in *any*thing! Can’t wait to share these recipes!
Thanks so much, dM! Might be time for a mocktail party…
Those are great mocktails, I might have to have a few of those now that I’m expecting. 🙂
Yes, congratulations, Anne-Marie! I’ll bet you’re so excited for the new “Bramblebump”!! My two are 22 months apart (though my oldest is 14–how did that happen??) and I think it’s a great age spacing. Enjoy them as much as you can when they’re little, those days go by so fast!
