I am a cocktail fan. Hubby and I love to play around with flavors and come up with our own drinks to enjoy.
But at a party, who has time to make ALL of your guests drinks? Enter Skinnygirl.
Skinnygirl Cocktails are the genius brainchild of Bethenny Frankel (DON’T get me started on how much I love her…she’s my fav Real Housewife of all time…). They are pre-mixed cocktails-Yes, pre-mixed- that you just pour over ice, or serve chilled! SO easy. She started the Skinnygirl Margarita and it has snowballed into the Skinnygirl Sangria and now their newest cocktail, the Skinnygirl White Cranberry Cosmo.
First off, let me tell you all WHY Skinnygirl Cocktails differ from the other pre-made cocktails out there. It is REAL. I have tasted other ready to serve cocktails, only to be dissapointed and almost grossed out by what can only be described as a chemical taste. I am not sure what is in them, but I know that the cocktails I order at the bar do not taste of chemicals. Skinnygirl? mmmmm. No chemical taste there, folks! I fell in love with the Skinnygirl Margarita when it first came out and FLOORED by the delicious light sweetness of the Sangria. Best of all?!?! They are all low in calories!!! They taste good AND you can enjoy them knowing you’re not going overboard on the calorie front. They don’t have that “diet” drink taste, either! I myself can’t really stomach diet sodas because the sweetener is bleh. These drinks disguise themselves as their full-calorie counterparts and I couldn’t believe that I couldn’t taste artificial sweeteners! LOVE.
But I’m here today to tell you all about their newest Girl on the block. The White Cranberry Cosmo.
Oh. My. Gawsh. So tasty!!!
I had my best girlfriend over for a tasting evening with me last week. We poured the Cosmo into a shaker with ice and shook it just to chill it (I forgot to put it into the fridge) and divided it evenly…except my glass had more…
This was such a refreshing drink, my friends! The perfect blend of tart from the cranberries with a little citrus flavor. It is so smooth with just enough strength to enjoy. Like it’s Girl friends the Margarita and the Sangria, it tasted nothing like a low calorie drink- it tasted real, as if a bartender made it in my home.
I love the simplicity of having a tasty cocktail that I can just pour and drink. As a mom, sometimes we get caught up with kids, homework, laundry, dishes….etc that to have a simple way to have a drink at the end of the night is pleasant.
The White Cranberry Cocktail JUST came out in stores, and will add the perfect flair to your holiday party, or even an evening chat with a girfriend.
