    I'm drinking red grape juice out of a wineglass... It's working and I feel like I'm drinking wine (even though it tastes like ribena lol)
    I intend to freak hubby out tonight by sipping it when he gets in from work lol

    Good plan! I found that if I drink just tonic water in a nice glass with some fresh line and ice I feel like I'm having a gin and tonic! X

    The best wine alternative is from Asda its called sparkling muscat and comes with a cork top even. Tastes as close to martini asti wine as a non alcohol one could. I have found York punch to be similar to red wine but u can only buy it online or at Christmas markets its also alcohol free and then kopperburg alcohol free cider tastes the same to me. X I really miss real wine tho lol

    I'm glad I'm quite happy just drinking juice and stuff

    I'm not a big drinker and never drank in the week - only thing we are missing at the moment is not going on holiday :(

    If you like beer Becks do an alcohol free version. Also kopperburg alcohol free is also in some pubs. I'd prob go for juice though some places do mocktails or apple/grapetizer in a wine glass?

    I had a glass of Elderflower juice stuff last week at the MIL's, but drank it in a wine glass so I could pretend it was real stuff!

    It didn't work!

    A really lush non alcoholic summer drink is:

    Bottle green cordial: pomegranate and elderflower
    Still cloudy lemonade
    Lots of ice

    It's lush!! And the way the ingredients mix/don't mix make it look like a fancy cocktail!

    I've been drinking Becks Blue....I think its quite like the real thing, and apparently is quite healthy, as it doesn't have all the additives and sugars that a lot of soft drinks do. I like it so much, I think I may carry on with it after pregnancy in the name of liver preservation!
