Don't get us wrong. We love a good glass of wine or finely crafted cocktail here at Momtrends. I mean, that's why we started our weekly Saturday Sips column to begin with over two years ago--to share delicious bottled finds and seasonal drink recipes.
But sometimes, we need a break from imbibing--even light social sipping can get tiresome. (Read why our editor Kristen decided to take a 90-day hiatus!). I, personally, have taken a step back because--well, because, I'm pregnant--so, yeah, I don't have much of a choice. Still, even when I wasn't in this delicate position, I tried to limit my intake to one or two drinks on the weekend.
Now that I'm totally abstaining, I'll say this: I don't miss the subtle headache or even slight buzz. But I have found myself bored with sipping a generic club soda creation while out and about at dinner parties and events. So, what can you drink to liven things up when you're not "drinking?" Enter Seedlip, the world's first distilled non-alcoholic beverages.
Nicole, introduced me to this product, after she attended a rooftop sip-and-see event. She was instantly sold, and like a good trend-spotter, she spread the word to the rest of the team at our annual weekend company retreat. She mixed me up a simple and tasty mocktail, and I, too, became an immediate fan.

There are three flavors: Grove 42, a citrus blend best served with tonic and a twist of orange peel; Spice 94, an aromatic spiced-berry blend that pairs well with tonic and red grapefruit; and Garden 108, an herbaceous green-inspired blend.
