Preggatinis: Mocktail Recipes for the Mom-to-Be

preggatinis.jpgNormally, the word "mocktail" would never, ever be found on this website. Ever. But we're bending our firm rule about that because it seems juuuust about every female we know (other than the Liquor Wife, praise be to Jebus) got knocked up has been in the family way and has recently or is about to squeeze out a squalling poop factory bundle of joy.

One of the things we've noticed is that the moms-in-waiting kind of shafted on cocktails with the whole "not really allowed to drink" thing, and we've sensed a steely note in their voices as they ordered another water or juice. Thankfully, Natalie Bovis-Nelsen (The Liquid Muse) has written a book of virgin cocktail recipes that could help give some variety and partially scratch the itch.

Within these pages are 75 original Preggatini recipes highlighting fresh juices, herbs, and garnishes as well as ideas for Preggatini Parties - a modern spin on the humdrum baby shower. Organized by pregnancy stages and symptoms, this lavishly illustrated, pocket-sized, virtually intoxicating guide also offers quotes from famous mums about pregnancy and health and such options as 'De-virginize for Dad' - making these drinks applicable to all.

We're particularly interested in the 'De-virginize for Dad' concept, but you could probably figure that out for yourself.

Iron Man: Demon in a Bottle

iron_man_demon_in_bottle.jpgOK, so we usually focus on books that're a little more flattering to our chosen lifestyle, but hey this is literature. It's supposed to challenge you. For those of you who've only seen the Iron Man movie, you' might be surprised that Tony Stark's playboy image gets a bit tarnished over the course of the comic book as he battles with demon rum. Demon in a Bottle is when it really comes to a head, so to speak, and it's a durned good read. Plus, we hear there will be elements of this storyline in the next Iron Man flick, so...Spoiler Alert!
