Try These Alcohol Free Drinks for Pregnancy

You’re pregnant? That’s amazing! A hearty congratulations are in order, let’s celebrate with a glass or two of bubbly!

Oh no, wait…you’re off the booze.

According to multiple scientific and medical sources, there is no safe level for drinking alcohol during pregnancy. Therefore, pregnant women are advised to abstain from booze completely. What’s more, since studies have shown that traces of ethanol can be detected in breast milk after the consumption of non-alcoholic beer, even NoLo products that contain just a small percentage of alcohol are inadvisable.

NHS Alcohol & Pregnancy Guidelines

BUT (and this is a big but), whilst many drinks listed as alcohol-free may contain traces of ethanol, we’re here to tell you that there are plenty of safe 0% options available for expectant and new mothers (and when we say 0%, we mean 0.0% alcohol-free).

1. LYSERØD - Copenhagen Sparkling Tea Company

Perfect for: Celebrations or al fresco afternoons with family and friends

What alcohol-free sparkling wines lack in alcohol, they usually more than make up for in sugar…not exactly conducive for a healthy pregnancy either! Fortunately, there are lower sugar options available, LYSERØD being one of the best. This non-alcoholic drink made by Copenhagen Sparkling Tea Company is the driest of their range with a sugar content of 20 grams per litre; not that this dampens the flavour since LYSERØD also contains the largest amount of tea per litre. The Darjeeling and Oolong deliver floral and herbaceous notes that yoke perfectly with the smoky bitterness of the hibiscus and just a hint of umami; LYSERØD’s flavour is nothing short of classy.

3. Heineken 0.0 - Heineken

Perfect for: BBQs and watching the game

A truly delicious and refreshing non-alcoholic beer, Heineken 0.0 more than challenges its higher-ABV counterparts in aroma, taste, and body. Rather than remove the alcohol from the original beer, Heineken’s master brewer, Willem van Waesberge, brewed this 0.0% beer from scratch in order to achieve a unique alcohol-free experience. Heineken 0.0 contains a maximum 0.05% ABV (alcohol by volume), which is lower than many food products such as juice, bread and bananas. According to Heineken, “This amount has no impact on the body and is fully fine in view of driving and pregnancy or alc-intolerant medical treatment.”
