No-brainer Recipes: Strawberry and Ginger Ale Child’s Drink

When my son comes home from a challenging day at school, I like to cheer him up with, what we like to call, a fancy smancy drink.  Relax, it’s totally non-alcoholic and you can even use diet soda if you worried about sugar.

What’s in this fancy drink, you ask?  Well, here’s what we put in it:


  • ginger ale or lemon-lime soda (can use diet if you’d like)
  • sliced strawberries (or any other fruit your child likes)
Put in your child’s favorite glass or cup!  On the day I photographed this, I used one of my old wine glasses and he felt oh so fancy! Not only does the fruit give the soda extra flavor, but it provides a tasty morsel with every sip! I must admit that I, too, like me some fancy smancy drink.

    What a great idea. Now if we could just get our husbands to make one for us but with alcohol.

    How cute! I think this would be great for a New Year’s Eve gathering with no alcohol also. I wonder if sparkling cider would work???

    Dionna-Cider or sparkling grape juice would work great! Yes, it would be perfect for new years for kids or pregnant mommies!

    I love the idea, but would skip the wineglass. We are all about spilling and broken glass in our house. I have taken to leaving the glasses that we use for dinner on the counter so that any spills will end up near the sink. My son is the worst about talking wildly with his hands and knocking over his drink.

    This reminds me of the strawberry lemonade at Ruby Tuesday’s. Of course yours probably doesn’t cost $3 a glass like theirs does, and yours probably tastes better…so I think I’ll be trying yours. That looks pretty darn good!
