This weekend two of my best friends came to visit. Both of them are pregnant (6 and 7 months, respectively) so I wanted to do something special for them. I asked a bunch of people, and they all told me to be sure to have a bowl of chocolate sitting out. That was easy (and devoured quickly.) I also wanted something else special, so I decided to try my hand at a non-alcoholic version of champagne. This ended up being beautiful, looking like a reverse sunrise!
When I was in college, we would always drink champagne together. It became sort of a tradition, so I thought this would be the perfect substitution for now. It was so good one even said she wanted both versions of this at her baby shower, so I’d say it was a success!
The best part about the weekend was catching up with my friends, and having such a relaxing time! We laid on the beach, went out to eat, watched a movie, and simply relaxed. It felt amazing to really get to catch up with my friends without feeling like we needed to go out all night!
If you want to include champagne in this recipe, just replace the white sparkling grape juice with champagne!
