The problem with the virgin drinks is that most of the time they don't taste like the real thing. And when you have a craving for the real thing, nothing else will do! Especially when you're pregnant. But alas, no alcohol for a preggo. I thought it was a very cruel joke but I craved frozen margaritas non-stop with my 3rd pregnancy. Without the tequila, they aren't the same. After I had her, I didn't want anything to do with a margarita. Go figure.

Can't you drink non alcoholic beer? I've had it once or twice and that tasted very much like the real thing and made a good shandy.

I could not imagine a Marg without the tequila! Actually, the daqs and coladas sans booze are pretty good. We used to sell a lot of them when I was a bartender years ago.

You need butterscotch flavoring or butterscotch syrup. I prefer the syrup. You can use the kind you put over ice cream. Then you just put milk, vanilla ice cream, butterscotch syrup and malt powder into the blender and blend away.

That reminded me of grasshoppers! I would think you could just use mint & cocoa syrups blended with some ice cream and milk. OR! What about a mudslide? I found this recipe for it. I'm sure the virgins of these drinks are very similar to the alcoholic ones. What a nice treat it would be on a summer day... yum!

My husband went through a craze of yogurt-based smoothies. I'd make them in the blender and put in the fridge. If you use frozen berries rather than fresh (and to be honest with you, "fresh" can be quite a euphanism), you'll get that slushy, refreshing feeling.
