Margaritas!

This is another one of my "sour" cravings. I think I might seriously go get a virgin one this evening! Mmmm. I hope nobody notices my belly bump and thinks I'm actually drinking.

when im not pregnant my go to drink is a red beer. basically a bloody mary with beer instead of vodka. i was craving one desperately last week. a virgin bloody mary just isnt the same.

I've never tried a red beer but I'm definatly curious about that! I like virgin marys but I just don't know that I could handle that many flavors at once.

I know it's not the best place to go, but I remember being pregnant with DD and Taco Bell had a virgin margarita drink that was lovely. It was just some lime juice crushed ice and a little soda mix but it was the closest thing to a margarita taste (minus the tequila of course) I've come across.

I love love love love love margaritas, I've been craving them lately too Sad I've never actually had a virgin one though I'd assume it would taste about the same but I'm one of those people that actually likes the taste of tequila so maybe not?

Another thing I've been craving is Outback Sangria..... yummmm. I told DH that after I have this little guy I'm going to Outback and ordering like 10 of them and a big huge steak. Biggrin

A note about what you said about people seeing you drink a virgin margarita and thinking your actually drinking, this kinda happened to me when I pregnant with DS! I have some very close friends who are in a local band and were playing in a contest at a bar for a radio station to open for Danzig (they won btw). I was about 8 months pregnant at the time and I wanted to go show my support and vote for them to win. Of course, I wasn't drinking anything at all but DH had me keep going and buying him beers at the bar and I got some horrid stares and snippy comments from people around me. Sad I still enjoyed myself but I learned to never judge a book by it's cover.

If you didn't yell at these people you are WAY better behaved than I am! DH doesn't leave me alone in bars any more as I yell at people who annoy me lol

I get way worse when I am pregnant too. When I was preg with DD, I yelled loudly at sales guy in a shopping mall, "If I wanted to try your bloody perfume then don't you think I would ask" after he asked me three times to try it.

People who make assumptions like that are such morons!! Unless I actually see a pregnant woman drinking beer after beer, I would never judge...and even then who am I to judge? How do I know that her baby hasn't been found without a heartbeat and she is going in to have a stillbirth the next day? You just never know the circumstances around what you actually see, and the reality is most of the time it is none of my business anyway...

I did end up having a virgin one and it wasn't the same without the tequila. Sad Its the first time this entire pregnancy that I have wanted to have a real drink. Nobody seemed to notice my belly bump or if they did, then I didn't notice them looking at me. It's funny that you mentioned Outback because my mom gave DH & I a gift card for it and we used it on Saturday. DH was getting ready to order a drink and the server told him that he should order the Sangria because their's was really good. He got a beer though. I guess I will have to try it after I have the baby.
