The popularity of Bravo reality star, Bethenny Frankel, has helped put her new product, Skinny Girl Margarita on shelves all over the country. Bethenny is appealing to many, because she is a mess…she is in therapy, struggles to balance being a mother and wife with running a business and has frequent nervous breakdowns in front of the camera, something that clearly many woman can relate to.
Margaritas are one of the top summer cocktails, and Skinny Girl Margaritas has made a splash, with just 100 calories per 4 ounce serving. The mix is 12.7 percent alcohol and is made with premium Blue Agave tequila, agave nectar, fresh lime juice and triple sec.
I had my first taste of the chilled cocktail over ice and I have to say it was a bit overwhelming with a very strong citrus flavor. I added some fresh lime and a little tequila and that did the trick, but with the added alcohol there went my 100 calories. I have seen some suggestions online where people have added diet sprite and they are happy with the flavor without adding extra calories. Overall I was disappointed with the taste and would not recommend spending $14.99 for the bottle. If you are looking for an inexpensive, low calorie drink option consider taking a package of Crystal Light lemonade mix and prepare as usual with water. Add a shot of your favorite tequila and lots of fresh lime juice – shake and serve.
