Help me replace my Mom's Dr. Pepper... she's sad! :-(

Katie Nell | Jul 17, 2006 05:15 PM

My mom has been having stomach problems for a while now, and her doctor has linked part of the problem to her Dr. Pepper addiction, i.e. the caffeine. Which also means, no more of her favorite tea either. (She doesn't really like decaf, I've ordered her some white tea, so we'll see how she likes it.) She tried lemonade for a while, mixed with club soda, but she now thinks that the carbonation is part of the problem. Anyway, I'm having everyone over for dessert next Saturday for my brother's birthday and I'm hoping to make a couple of non-alcoholic drinks that will help her forget about her beloved Dr. Pepper! I've thought about doing lemonade of some sort, but I would like something a little more unusual. I'll probably have a couple of different selections and I was thinking of one of the kicked up waters that we talked about a while back (ginger and cucumber, orange and rosemary, etc.) for one of them. Any ideas everyone? Fellow caffeine addicts please help!
