The answer is usually “No, I don’t miss it…yet.” I’m only 12 weeks along, so I’m sure the longing will creep in sometime soon. It’s more about feeling like your part of the situation, and having a fancy drink in your hand to gesture with, helps with that. A sweaty water glass just doesn’t do the trick.

For those of us who went to state schools, there’s Coors Cutter. Surprisingly it doesn’t taste that much different than Coors Light, and never fear, still gives you the lovely breath and burps. Guiness makes Kaliber, which is for the dark beer fans (not I).
A neighbor made his pregnant wife and I a virgin version of a mojito – a Faux-jito. He crushes mint leaves in a glass, adds simple syrup and soda, and garnishes with lime. Perfect for patio season.
