Why should drinkers have all the fun this holiday season? And poor designated drivers, sitting there with their sad little sodas and chewed-on straws. Fortunately this month, Natalie Bovis-Nelsen (aka the Liquid Muse) -- L.A. cocktail blogger extraordinaire and a certified mixologist -- has come out with her first cocktail book for -- wait for it -- pregnant women. But the thing is if you're not expecting, Preggatinis: Mixology for the Mom-To-Be ($16.95) with its 75 virgin cocktails is actually also a great recipe book when you want to whip up something for non-drinkers and designated drivers at your holiday parties. Hey, they should have something fun to drink, too.

For instance, Natalie's Sparkling Pomegranate Snowflake drink served in a champagne flute would be a perfect addition to that champagne toast on New Year's, not to mention the envy of champagne drinkers.
