I decided that I’m going to start a new series of posts here on my blog called “Pregnant in PDX” where I’ll showcase some of my favorite discoveries right here in Portland for mamas-to-be! I’ve really enjoyed my pregnancy so far, and so I thought this might be a fun way to share some of my favorite places with you. (Any suggestions for specific posts you might like to see, let me know!)
It’s been a pretty hot summer here in Portland, and the weather hasn’t totally cooled down quite yet (it’s supposed to be 90 degrees here this weekend!) so I’m still in somewhat of a summer mood myself. But one of the hardest things about being pregnant in the summer (at least for me) is not being able to indulge in a glass of chilled white wine or a cold beer on a hot day. I typically stick to water when we go out to restaurants these days, but after awhile, that starts to get a little old. Here are a few places I’ve tried recently that have some wonderful non-alcoholic options!
They actually use housemade syrups for their sodas and they had quite a few interesting flavors available – I got the strawberry hibiscus soda and really liked it!
Those are a just a small sample of some of the great non-alcoholic drinks available here in Portland! Plus, lots of restaurants that have inventive cocktail menus will likely be able to make a good mocktail for you; if they don’t have non-alcoholic drinks listed on their menu specifically, you can often just find a cocktail you like and ask them to make a virgin version for you and most places will be happy to oblige. I’m definitely open to suggestions though, so let me know what mocktails here in Portland I need to try out next…cheers!
