Apple Pomegranate Spritzers for a Virtual Baby Shower
As much as I’m looking forward to fall and it’s cool crisp weather, I’m still grasping at summer just a bit. Apple Pomegranate Spritzers were the perfect way to toast the end of summer and a new baby, for my friend Jen!
Almost 25 years ago we welcomed our first baby into our family, a beautiful little girl. We wanted a girl first and she was perfect. So perfect in fact, we waited 8-1/2 years before we decided to have another, lol. It all seems SO long ago now, but I remember singing camp songs during bath time, watching every Disney Movie made a dozen times…… in one day, and how my heart melted every time I heard “love you mommy” with a big hug.
Today we are celebrating as our sweet friend Jen from My Kitchen Addiction, and her husband are about to welcome their first bundle of joy, a baby girl to their lives. I toast the two of you with this non-alcoholic drink and wish you the very best in your journey thru parenthood. Your lives will never be the same again, you will wonder how you ever breathed with out this little one in your arms!
I brought Apple Pomegranate Spritzers to the party table today. Aren’t they pretty?!
This drink will not disappointed. It’s fizzy, fruity and full of antioxidants (hello pomegranate!) and non-alcoholic. You could swap out the lemon-lime soda for white wine if you’d prefer a boozy version, say for a bridle shower, or after a day of answering “Why” twenty times.
Simple, refreshing and a perfect good bye to summer and hello to the upcoming holidays!
