    There is the old standby "Shirley Temple" which is basically Ginger Ale and Grenadine. Virgin daiquiris, virgin mary, etc.

    Pretty much the same reaction, lol!

    Maybe some sort of virgin colada? Or Margarita?

    I did google, but google doesn't tell me which ones people like!! I need to buy the ingredients, so have to be reasonably available. Well very available.

    Most baby showers I've thrown or attended had punch. I don't know if that is what you mean (you know, the old UK/American translation stuff, LOL)

    Our normal party punch, nothing fancy and super easy:

    Equal parts 7 up & Green Hi C (it used to be Ecto Cooler....now I think it's Green Tangerine?)
    Plenty of rainbow sherbert scoops floating around to melt

    :rofl1::rofl1:

    Actually, it was always my favorite Hi C flavor! The name sounds worse than it is...........they just cashed in on the popularity of Ghost Busters, LOL It's not called that anymore, I'm pretty sure it's called Green Tangerine or something.

    Club soda here is fizzy water. Seltzer water here tastes a bit salty.

    My sister mixes up Martinelli's sparkling cider with grenadine. It's pretty dang awesome.

    There's always Italian sodas too. You just need soda water, flavored syrups, and cream. Just make sure the soda water is cold or the cream may curdle.

    Renee & Romy's suggestions sound great.

    What about a mojito? minus the white rum of course and mixed up with whatever fruity flavor you like if lime isn't your thing - Lychee and raspberry mojito OMG delicious

    Weird. It's the opposite here.

    Seltzer is just sparkling water with flavor added (0 calories). Club soda is salty.

    I pretty much live on seltzer.

    I'm probably thinking about the Schweppes Tonic/Seltzer. It's definitely salty. The other stuff is labeled "sparkling water."

    Well, I'm making virgin mojito things.

    Fresh raspberries, lime and mint, topped with sprite and ginger ale :) tastes yum (i practiced last night, but added vodka lol)

    Yeah the Schweppes - salty stuff. "Club soda" here is usually quite salty. We have it handy for blotting out stains and cleaning LOL

    For fizzy water I like Pellegrino/Perrier. I don't ever mix them though - I use sodas for mixing usually.

    Glad the mojitos worked out for you Dizzy! have alot of fun! =)
