4.0 out of 5 stars Good Variety and Accessibility Jan. 28 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
I was very interested in this book. I have recently begun making mocktails as a hobby and I thought this looked like a fun collection of god recipes. Browsing the book, I have found that there are a lot of really delicious-looking, creative mocktails, and many faithful virgin recreations of classic cocktails as well (the Mai Tai is delicious!). However, there are also several recipes that are decidedly uninspired, and seem to be nothing more than a fizzy fruit punch or a single juice with seltzer. Definitely a great buy, especially for an expecting mother or someone who is just getting started creating fun, non-alcoholic beverages, but not every recipe is a home run.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dozens of Non-Alcoholic Drinks--YUM! May 12 2008
By Janet Boyer - Published on
"I'll never forget that wonderful moment when the concept of the Margarita Mama was born. I was newly pregnant. (Translation: No alcohol allowed!) It was a hot summer day. I was visiting my in-laws at their beach house, and all my summer-trained insticts called out for a real margarita. Everyone else was indulging in a chilly, sprightly, refreshing cocktail. Sure, none of *them* were pregnant--but what about meeeeee?" -- From the book

Although this delightful book has expectant Moms (or newbie Moms) in mind, rest assured that Margarita Mama is a GREAT book for ANYONE who enjoys refreshing drinks. In this case, non-alcoholic ones!

This colorful 95-page hardcover book features insight, advice and tons of delicious recipes (I know because I tried some!). Here are but a few of the tasty "mocktails" included in this fun book:

*Watermelon Margarita
*Pregnant Peach
*Strawberry Banana Smoothie
*Perfect Pear of Jeans
*Basil Pomegranate Lemonade
*Sparkling Cosmopolitan
*Chocolate Crave
*Raspberry Champagne
*Mai Tai
*Swollen Feet Fizz
*White Russian

Do those sound scrumptious or WHAT?!

My personal favorite? A drink I've made for years and still love: the Sparkling Cape Codder.

If you're looking for a nice gift book for a Mom-to-be (especially if she lives in a warm climate or somewhere where the summers are HOT), Margarita Mama would make a lovely surprise!

And, like I said, this book does NOT have to be gifted to--or enjoyed by--mommies or mommies-to-be! Anyone who loves delicious, easy-to-make virgin drinks will no doubt find Magarita Mama a welcome addition to their recipe repertoire. (Yikes! Say those last two words real fast! *chuckle*)

What a great idea! This cute, little, wonderfully colored hardback is just what every pregnant mom needs. Filled with non-alcoholic beverages that look simply fantastic, this book makes it possible for the expecting mom to join in the fun! All the recipes have easy ingredients, look delicious, and were tested by the author herself. Nice work!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great, creative book! April 5 2008
By NewMomMA - Published on
I love this book! The recipes are delicious, and it allows me to enjoy "cocktail hour" with my husband and friends again. My favorite recipe is the mocktail "Mai Tai". It is such a good imitation of a real Mai Tai, that you barely notice that the alcohol is missing!
5.0 out of 5 stars SCRUMPTIOUS! April 1 2008
By Pamela Sinel - Published on
I loved this book. It's perfect for anyone, whether you are expecting or not. You can add whey protein to make a post-sports recovery drink out of any of these tasty treats. Also it makes a great shower gift. A must-have for your cookbook repertoire!
