Since 2008 when I fell pregnant with Little Bean I have hardly touched alcohol because I have either been pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant or just too tired to contemplate going out and enjoying a drink but now that my pregnancy/breastfeeding journey has come to an end, all that can change – not that I plan to become an alcoholic but I can certainly enjoy the odd tipple when the mood takes me.
Shortly after I found out I was pregnant with Jelly Bean we held a BBQ with all our neighbours and I was still trying to keep my pregnancy under wraps. Throughout my two previous pregnancies Shloer had become my friend, it looked like wine and ok so it doesn’t exactly taste like wine but it does taste good and it also meant I didn’t have to drink water or orange juice all evening as I don’t tend to drink Coke or Lemonade on their own. So whilst trying to mask my pregnancy I drank Pink Shloer from a wine glass and it worked, cue a few giddy giggles from me and everyone was put off the scent so to speak. A few months later when my bump was more noticeable and the good news had been shared, we were attending the Wedding Reception of one of our neighbours and I remember one of them saying to me “but you were drinking wine at the BBQ” at which point I laughed and told them my little trick.
Shloer have now introduced two new bottles to their collection which are right up my street, Shloer Celebration White Bubbly which has a crisp and full bodied flavour. They use the very best in white grape juices to create the perfect glass of fizz – without the alcohol – hello, no hangover!!!
My favourite is the Shloer Celebration Pink Fizz which is a fresh and fruity combination with the vibrant flavours of red and white grape juices to create a sparkling ‘alcohol-free’ rose drink.
So if you’re and expectant Mum who still wants to enjoy a bit of fizz on Valentines, birthdays, baby showers or just because it’s Tuesday then grab a bottle of Shloer.
RRP £2.99/75cl bottles
Available in supermarkets nationwide
