Now that we have gathered all of the ingredients, it’s time to make this pregnancy safe non alcoholic champagne recipe. This recipe is super easy and quick, and anyone can make it.

Step 1: Make the simple syrup

For the first step, we need to make a simple syrup. To do so, in a small saucepan, add 3 cups of water and 3 cups of sugar over medium heat. Cook for around 5-7 minutes or until the sugar has fully dissolved in the water, stirring occasionally. Once done, remove from heat and set aside to cool.

Step 2: Combine the juices

Next, take a large jar or a pitcher, and add 1 cup of grapefruit juice, 2 cups of orange juice (preferably freshly squeezed), and 3 cups of filtered water to it. Stir well until combined.

Step 3: Add the ginger ale

Now it’s time to add some fizziness to our drink. Add 2-3 cups of chilled ginger ale to the juice mixture and gently stir together.

Step 4: Add the simple syrup

The last step is to incorporate our simple syrup into the drink mixture. Start by adding only a little bit of the syrup at a time and tasting it along the way. Depending on your taste preferences, you may not need all of it. Once you have reached your desired level of sweetness, give everything a good stir.

Congratulations! You have now created your very own pregnancy-safe non-alcoholic champagne recipe that is perfect for any occasion.

Note: This recipe also makes for an excellent base if you want to experiment with other fruit juices like fresh apple juice or pomegranate juice.
