Slim Foodies Love Skinnygirl™

| June 4, 2013

skinnygirl magaritaWith summer knocking at our door, it’s definitely time to watch our calorie intake more than ever.

Portion control is key for foodies like us when dining and with the Skinnygirl™ line from Bethenny Frankel; our “live life to the fullest” motto remains intact, since we can also have our favorite drinks with fewer calories.

The Skinnygirl™ ready-made cocktails are not as sweet as some of the classic cocktail recipes since they have less sugar, however if you are looking for a tasty drink with less calories, this is a great product line for you.

Mexican food is a favorite of ours and The Skinnygirl™ Margarita is a fabulous accompaniment. Just open and serve over ice and you are good to go. With around 100 calories per 4 oz serving, you can be sure you are saving hundreds of calories compared to the original recipe. We like ours blended with ice for a frozen treat.

Another product we love from Skinnygirl™ is the very unique and refreshing cucumber Vodka.  It can be used for both sweet and savory cocktails.

Here are some of our favorite Skinnygirl™ recipes:

The StarletSkinnygirl Cucumber Vodka


1½ parts Skinnygirl™ Cucumber Vodka
2 parts club soda 
Splash of no-sugar-added cranberry juice


Combine vodka and soda over ice. Top with cranberry juice. Garnish with a lime wedge or cucumber slice.


Skinnygirl™ Bloody Mary:


2 parts Skinnygirl™ Cucumber Vodka
2 parts low-sodium tomato juice
Splash of fresh lemon juice
Squeeze of fresh lime juice
Dash of Worcestershire sauce (to taste)
Dash of hot sauce
Sprinkle of celery salt


Shake ingredients well in a three-piece shaker filled with ice. Strain into a glass filled with ice. Garnish with lime, cucumber and celery stalk.
