We love a good party. And we certainly don't want to leave out mamas who don't drink alcohol. That's why we developed this awesome baby shower mocktail called The Sparkling Emma. It's a gorgeous signature mocktail recipe perfect for a baby shower or other celebration.

Baby Shower Mocktails

A baby shower is a momentous celebration that warrants a signature mocktail that's as beautiful as the mama-to-be. What a wonderful opportunity to make all of your non-drinking guests feel included by serving a grown-up, delicious, and beautiful mocktail--or should we say "momtail?"

“Non-alcoholic” doesn't have to be basic and boring; there are so many options for sophisticated mocktails these days. We promise your guests won't even miss their mimosas and margaritas (or the morning migraine!) when you serve up something special and delightful.

The Sparkling Emilia

One of our favorite baby shower mocktails is The Sparkling Emilia – she is GORGEOUS and delicious but she’s also easy for the hostess to make. While you can prep a large batch of The Sparkling Emilia to make it even easier, it’s not necessary. Organize your glasses beautifully on a table and pre-fill them with the simple syrup and grapefruit juice. When you are ready to serve just top them off with an ice cold LaCroix and your garnish.

The Sparkling Emilia needs the bubbles; be sure to keep your LaCroix ice cold before serving. Don’t forget to pull out your favorite clear coupe, chimney, or champagne glass for a special presentation. Garnish the drink with a sprinkle of edible flowers for the full stunning effect. If edible flowers aren’t your thing, try a vanilla bean or pomegranate arils.
