While in the midst of preparing for baby number 2, I got to thinking about the wonderful baby shower that my friends hosted for me when I was pregnant with Cian. It was such a special day, filled with lots of yummy food, great company and delicious (non-alcoholic!) drinks.
One of my favorite drinks from that day was this delicious 7UP® Tropical Breeze mocktail. It's the perfect taste of the tropics, even when it's cold and snowy outside.
It's also really easy to make - and can be made into a more sinful adult version - with the addition of a shot of coconut rum.
The base of this drink is 7UP, and it's zingy lemon-lime flavor adds the perfect refreshing touch.
This time around, instead of drinking this at my baby shower, I'm planning on hosting the all important Bachelor finale viewing party and including this on the menu. I know it will go down a treat!
Who doesn't love getting together with their girlfriends to watch that train-wreck of a show? Am I right? I say girlfriends, but I know the boys secretly (or not so secretly!) love it too!!
To host a successful Bachelor Finale Viewing Party all you need is good company, this drink and some decadent cupcakes. That's certainly recipe for a perfect night in!
I like drinks like this that only contain a few ingredients. Not only are they quick to make but inexpensive too. I think this mocktail (or cocktail) would also be perfect for any upcoming birthdays, anniversaries or baby showers.
