“Reasons Mommy Drinks is a fresh, insightful, and hilarious collection of the various struggles faced by new parents—from mommy groups and single-people envy to the end of maternity leave—with a well-deserved cocktail recipe to go with each one. This must-have resource will help sleep-deprived new moms survive the baby years with their sense of humor, if not their lives as they once knew them, intact.”
The book is written from the perspective of a nursing mom, which I truly appreciate. There are quite a few mocktails (non-alcoholic) drinks listed with the recipes. My favorite page is the She Can’t Drink page with the accompanying drink a Eighteen-Year-Old Glenlivet, “If you are going to have only one drink, make it count.”
