Skinny Grapefruit Cocktail

Refreshing and fun

Confession time.

I’m a total sucker for Skinny cocktails.

It all started with Bethenny Frankel’s SkinnyGirl drinks — margarita, sangria, and white cranberry cosmo. Each edition tastier than the one before it.

Then restaurants started coming up with their own versions of skinny cocktails — a crafty way to charge more for a drink that actually costs less to make.

The whole idea behind a skinny cocktail is to make a fruity alcoholic beverage and reduce the sugar content and calories. So we can have our fun and still fit into our skinny jeans.

While purchasing Bethenny’s ready-to-go skinny drinks is convenient, the price per bottle climbs right along with its popularity.

This recipe has the benefit of not costing $9 per glass, and it’s filled with fresh ingredients that lend flavor and even a few vitamins. Bottoms up!
