Lemon Strawberry Moscato Punch

Would you consider yourself more of a rule-breaker or follower?  If there’s a logical reason behind a rule, I’ll follow it.  However, if the reason behind the rule is, “Because I said so,” you might as well light a fire under my rump and put a flashing neon sign out that says, “Break me!”


So when I was pregnant, there was a logical reason behind not drinking a bottle of Moscato.  I didn’t want my kids to come out with crazy eyes and requesting a shot of tequila…although it could possibly help them fall asleep faster and easier…  The point is, I wanted my Moscato during pregnancy, but refrained for my little parasites.


After they were born, I didn’t have to poke my lower lip out and start whining every time I saw a friend drinking what looked like a delicious cocktail.  My BFF brought me a special insulated wine glass with a bottle of wine to the hospital.  Totally appropriate.  I finally understood what the term “pump ‘n dump” meant.
