Hey mamasitas - Are you looking for a tasty summertime drink to serve at your next barbecue, Moms Night In or a Bunco Party? Do you love Margaritas but hate that most mixes are full of artificial sweeteners and are so high in calories? Do you want something fast, fun and tasty that you can use to make a variety of drinks? You've gotta try Drink Skinny Margarita mix - I think you'll love it!
I was introduced to Drink Skinny by my friend Sally, the owner of The Rockapoodle Martini Company. Sally designs and hosts fabulous fun martini parties and loves to use this low cal and all-natural drink mix in her Basil Martini. She raved about how delicious Drink Skinny is and insisted I give it a try.
The folks at Drink Skinny were generous enough to send me a complimentary bottle in exchange for an honest review. So hubby and I had fun trying a few cocktails and mocktails with it. I've got a few photos and recipes for you to try, but first, I've gotta tell you a bit about Drink Skinny. It's all-natural, has no artificial anything, and is only 20 calories per serving! The ingredients are: filtered water, lime juice, lemon juice (both from concentrate), agave nectar and stevia - an all natural herbal sweetener. There's none of that heinous High Fructose Corn Syrup in Drink Skinny! Read all about it and get the Skinny - here.
I like the simple, classy bottle. The lime coloring of the label immediately makes my mouth water, thinking of the delicious flavor of a margarita. The flavor of Drink Skinny is just right - not too tart, not too sweet, just simply delicious! I also find it very smooth and not too acidy as some juice based drinks can be. I like that it's low cal and all natural. I also like that the folks at Drink Skinny encourage recycling, and they donate 10% of their profits to organizations that make the world a better place. Drink Skinny is a fairly new product - you can either buy it online or in one of several stores (soon coming to a store near you!). Oh and guess what?! There are new flavors coming soon: Pomegranate Blueberry & Pineapple-Mango !! Yumm!
Here are some yummy recipes you can try, using your very own bottle of Drink Skinny.
