Baby showers are a fun, feminine celebration that warrants an equally festive baby shower punch or drink. We love these non-alcoholic drink recipes and are sure you and your guest of honor will too. Ginger-Orange Mocktails are ideal for a midmorning shower and might just be our easiest shower punch recipe. No one will be missing the mimosas when this fresh sipper is served. Try Blackberry-Lime Agua Fresca if you're looking for a hit of flavor berry flavor. We absolutely love the color of Iced Hibiscus Sweet Tea and the fizz from ginger ale makes it even more refreshing. Punch recipes like Lemon-Lime-Rosemary Punch and Cran-Raspberry-Vanilla Punch are Southern shower classics—you'll recognize them once you see the mounds of floating sorbet or sherbet on top. Our Sparkling Cherry Limeade is just the fix the mama-to-be needs if she's missing her favorite margarita on the rocks. Choose any of these recipes as a signature drink, but also have a batch of our Cucumber-Mint Water to offer guests as well.
