A baby shower is the perfect time to test out your mocktail making skills. Most pregnant women choose to abstain from alcohol. So, it just makes sense that a baby shower would have no alcohol, allowing the mom-to-be to drink everything she wants!
There are so many fantastic mocktails that will match your baby shower theme. You can color coordinate your mocktails to be blue or pink, mimicking the baby's gender. You can also match your mocktail to the season, making them bright and fruity in the summer or warm and seasoned in the winter.
We wanted to make a list of our favorite mocktails to serve at a baby shower. Each one is delicious and each one will be loved by the mom of honor and all her guests!
How to Pick Drinks for a Baby Shower
There are a few things to consider when choosing drinks for a baby shower. Take a look at these tips and pointers that may help you choose the best drinks to serve at a baby shower.
- When is the shower?- The time of year can help determine what type of drinks you want to serve. In the warmer months, you should pick drinks that are cold and icy. Lighter, fruitier drinks work well in the summer. Warm, spicy drinks are best in the winter. The season does matter!
- Is there a theme?- If your baby shower has a theme, you should pick drinks that match that theme. For example, a Mexican themed shower would be great with some virgin margaritas. A good non alcoholic butter beer is perfect for a Harry Potter themed party. Welcome that new little wizard into the world in a very fun way!
- Boy or Girl?- If you already know the gender of the baby, you may want to match the drinks to the sex. Pink is the classic color for girls so a non alcoholic pink whitney is one great idea. Blue is for boys and oh boy is our blue mocktail blue! There are also lots of purple and green drinks you can choose from as well.
- Make it ahead- Drinks that you can make in advance are always a good idea. If you are able to make a big pitcher or a mocktail and store it in the fridge for a day or two, your baby shower will be far less stressful. If you have someone who will be manning the mocktail station, then go for the more complicated drinks.
Keep all of these things in mind as you browse our favorite baby shower mocktail recipes. They will help you pick the best drinks for your specific party.
Great Tip: Encourage your guests to inscribe the baby book instead of writing cards for you! Not only will it build up an amazing library for the little one, but also create beautiful memories. If you are stumped on what to inscribe in a baby book for your friends' baby shower, then find inspiration with meaningful and creative baby book inscription ideas!

This drink is perfect for a baby shower celebrating a new little boy. It is so brilliantly blue that it will definitely match your baby boy decor. It also tastes incredible.
We recommend this blue mocktail for summer baby showers. The citrus flavor is very summery and refreshing. The drink is made with blue curacao syrup, lemon juice, orange juice and lemon lime seltzer.
All those fresh flavors are sure to be a hit at any baby shower. Add a blue straw and you have a picture perfect drink!
Want a drink that is both blue and pink? Our blueberry pink lemonade will fit the bill! It is a beautiful shade of light pink with some deep blue blueberry puree. You get all the baby shower colors in one glass!
This is a very easy beverage to drink. People are going to want more than one. Keep this in mind when you make the mix!
You can make the pink lemonade and the blueberry syrup in advance. Mix them together the day of the shower to ensure the colors stay separate. You want the clear definition of pink and blue!
If you want a beautiful, light pink drink to help celebrate a new baby girl, this is the drink for you! Our pink strawberry coconut refresher makes a fantastic baby shower drink. It is fruity and light, full of flavor and will match your pink themed party perfectly.
We like to make our pink drink to order, blending it up right before you are ready to enjoy it so that the frozen strawberries keep the drink thick and cold. Keep this in mind when planning for your party. You can make the drink in advance but use fresh strawberries instead of frozen.
Rose water is a wonderful drink to put on the tables of a baby shower. Don’t serve your guests regular water! Make it fancy with rose water instead! Pretty pink rose petals will also go well with your baby girl themed party.
Rose water not only adds a subtle, floral taste to your water, but it is healthy as well. Rose water is a natural anti-inflammatory, has antioxidants, and can improve your mood. Sounds like something a mom-to-be would approve of!
Having a summer baby shower? Or maybe you are celebrating with a Mexican themed party? Either way, a virgin margarita mocktail is the perfect drink. It is one that everyone at your party will enjoy.
Make a big pitcher of our virgin margarita mocktail the day before your party. Rim some margarita glasses with salt and a few with sugar then set them on a drink table.
Your baby shower guests can help themselves to a perfect virgin margarita! We also love the neutral yellow color of this drink which makes it perfect for a gender neutral shower.
A non alcoholic chocolate martini can work as a dessert or as a drink for a baby shower. This is perfect for any chocolate loving mom-to-be and her guests!
Our chocolate martini is made with real chocolate, coconut milk and vanilla coffee syrup. You can use any kind of milk and whit chocolate instead of dark if you’d like! Customize the drink to suit the chocolate loving future moms tastes!
