New Mother Mocktail (Juice Blend)
This New Mother Mocktail is a delicious blend of juices perfect for recovering moms, baby showers, or any occasion that calls for a fruity drink!
No one likes hospital food: Except for me.
Especially after I have a baby.
After 9 months of nausea and sickness, food aversions, and the risk of overextending my increasingly limited gastrointestinal real estate, nothing makes me happier than studying the hospital menu in my recovery suite and ordering everything on it.
Last time around, my nurses introduced me to “The Cocktail” which they serve generously to each recovering mother. This simple blend of juices, renamed by me as the “New Mother Mocktail,” is sweet, fruity, and incredibly refreshing.
And today, I’m drinking it up!
I remember the hospital version having a color that was much more pink or purple than my version pictured here. I think it’s because they use cranberry juice cocktail while I favor the 100% Juice version. But it really won’t make much difference in terms of the taste; it’s scary how simple it is to chug glass after glass of this addictive juice blend.
In addition to aiding in recovery after a new baby, the New Mother Mocktail is a lovely choice for baby showers, parties, brunches, or any occasion where a fruity beverage fits the bill. It is as easy as opening bottles and mixing equal parts of juice in a pitcher or punch bowl.
For the full experience, be sure to use crushed ice (not cubed) and serve in an over-sized foam cup. Just like the ones you get in a hospital.
