Any kind of juice with seltzer water or 7up/ sprite is good, virgin (bloody) marys, virgin daquiris or margaritas. Have a blast =)

You ordering for yourself or for her?

If you’re buying her drinks, get whatever she wants!  I like wine, but my taste has matured.  When I was 21 I was doing Jager bombs (ok I still do on occasion).  That’s Jagermeister (a licorice-y liquor) and Redbull.  Cherry bombs are delish too. 

Or just get shots of something for everyone – I think if you buy a round you’re good.  🙂

If you’re looking for good virgin drinks since you don’t drink, you still aren’t going to fit in at 34 weeks.  🙂  Just get a club soda and grenadine (cherry flavor) or whatever you normally drink.

It’s not super exciting, by my favorite non-alcoholic bar drink is cranberry and soda water with lime because it tastes good and isn’t super sugary… Most bartenders won’t even charge you but you want to make sure to leave a tip either way! It also looks like a regular drink so the drunk people in the bar won’t give you crap about not drinking (might not be an issue if you’re obviously pregnant, but if it’s not super obvious bar drunks can be pretty obnoxious)…

Most cocktails or mixed drinks (e.g. daquiris) can be ordered virgin. When we went to HI, I ordered a lot of lava flows and strawberry daquiris virgin. They tasted mostly the same.

Alternatively, if you don’t care about looking like you are boozing it up, then you can order juice, shirley temples, or a cherry coke (which at the bar equals coke + grenadine). 

Lastly, you can just ask the bartender to create you something. They’re usually more than happy to do it.

@figgnewton:  Daiquiri is like a frozen strawberry slushie. Frozen margaritas taste like frozen lemonade. As for cost, how many people are you talking about & what part of the country are you in? Drinks around here can run $6+, beer is $3-4.

Maybe I’m simple… but I just like orange juice and lemonade with ice. It’s lovely and sooo refreshing on a hot day.

I would just order fruiry virgin drinks. Pina coladas & strawberry daiquiris! Someone is bound to say something people don’t know how to mind their business!  I was drinking coffee today & someone said “oh your doctor lets you drink coffee”. Nosey!! I told her it was none of her business but is was decaf anyway!

@laa320:  It’s the freaking best! I didn’t try it until I was an adult, but when I did I was like “*&*&^!”£$%^&&… BEST. THING. EVER.”

Go to the fridge and try it right now… I dare you. Half and half works for me!
