    I drink non-alcoholic beer for months now. In a glass it looks like a real deal and actually it even tastes like a real deal (at least I've found one brand which does). No one can tell ;)

Now here's a question for you gals....i'm going to Chicago this weekend with my mom and sisters and they don't know either...how do I get around drinking in the bars and restaurants with them?! I have a feeling we'll be going to many each day so any ideas will be greatly appreciated! thanks....

    That is a good idea!! Getting around drinking is ALWAYS hard and it's funny how people start to think something is up.

    With being out and about it is going to harder. I would just say you have a bad headache and you don't want to make it worse with drinking. Or...say you are on antibiotics for something and you can't mix it with alcohol....I have used that one before :)

    I usually offer to be a dedicated driver. that helps a lot :D

    Or if there's a brand of non-alcoholic drinks they can't tell by name?

    not sure I can be the designated driver at my own 40th birthday party! It's for the whole weekend and we have a hall with camping for 2 nights, so I won't actually have anywhere to drive to

    I suppose I'm gonna have to pull the old anti-biotics stunt

    If you are a bit (were a bit!) of a lager fiend, I discovered alcohol free Cobra beer. It looks just like the littler bottles that are served in some indian restaurants. Because quite a lot of restaurants are BYO round my way, friends didn't even notice I was drinking it.

    Tasted pretty good too. Some of them are awful!

    The wine isn't so good, very sweet but drinkable to fend off all the questions!!!

    JMC-111, an Arnold Palmer is just lemonade and tea. Oh heck.....with family it's hard cause they want to try it and know EVERYTHING.....I agree with the others....suggest to be designated drive :) GL!!!

    non-alcoholic beers and wines etc in fact do have a minute amount of alcohol in them (usually about 0.5%), and they just taste like watered-down beer/wine!
