Skinnygirl Margarita Toronto Launch – June 17 2011 – Summerhill LCBO
At long last it has arrived, Skinnygirl Margarita is here in Canada! And what is it you may ask?
Skinnygirl Margarita priced in Ontario at $15.95/750 ml bottle, is a ready-to-serve cocktail made with natural flavours, lightly sweetened with agave nectar, and made with premium Blue Agave Tequila. It has 110 calories per 4.2 ounce/125 ml serving. But does it taste good?
Ahhh yeah! Why do you think I’m going nuts over this product? And did I mention that its has only 110 calories per 4.2 ounce/125 ml serving? Basically all you do is shake it with ice & you’re all set. If you’re a margarita fan or don’t know if you’re a margarita fan you’ll be happy to know that a typical restaurant version packs a whopping 500 calories or more in a 4 ounce cocktail.
So why is this such a big deal? Because not only is it fan-friggen-tabulous but it was created in 2009 by Bethenny Frankel, a renowned natural foods chef, three time New York Times Best Selling Author AND the star of “Bethenny Getting Married” and “Bethenny Ever After” AND she was on the Bravo hit series “The Real Housewives of New York”. Frankel, who calls herself a “health foodie” not only knows how to make healthy food, but she knows how to make healthy food taste good. In March 2011, Skinnygirl Cocktails was acquired by Beam Global Spirits & Wine. Frankel will continue to serve as the committed brand collaborator, developer and marketer.
Aside from this genius and delicious idea Frankel has become a true inspiration for women like me who want it all. By putting her entire life story on TV and in her book “A Place of Yes: 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out of Life”, she has shared her own challenges, pitfalls, and successes.
Well there you have it Canada! Skinnygirl Margarita will being appearing on liquor store shelves across Canada this summer, starting in the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario and Saskatchewan in June 2011.
