Shrimp & Grits
Go Green



Please tell me you are as big a fan as me of the Real Housewives TV shows?!  My favorite is Orange County, but unfortunately its season just ended.  My next favorite is New York.  And my favorite lady on the show is Bethenny Frankel


On its premiere episode I saw Bethenny's Skinny Girl cocktails featured.  You may have heard of the Skinny Girl Margarita.  So I started exploring.  Turns out she has a book coming out called Naturally Thin on March 10.  She is a health food chef and I am so glad she wrote a book.  She has an awesome figure so I will be buying the book. 

More importantly, due out later is a book of Skinny Girl cocktail recipes!  I love my cocktails and would love them even more if they didn't pack on the pounds.  A date has not been released yet.  Until the book comes out I found that she has several recipes on  Here is her Skinny Girl Margarita:


If you want a SKM on the rocks, it's quite simple. Add ice to a rocks glass, add 2 oz. (a two count) of White Tequila, the juice of 4 lime wedges and a splash of triple sec, Grand Marnier or Cointreau. It's that easy!

If you want a frozen margarita, combine all the ingredients in a blender; just make sure that there is 2 oz. of tequila per serving and you're ready to go! Serve in a chilled glass; and if you'd like to garnish the glass, rim it with a lime and dip in salt or sugar or both
There are several other recipes on the site including a Low Cal Mojito. 
So who's your favorite lady on the show?  Who's your least favorite?  All I have to say is "Silex" has got to go!

Alcoholic cocktail recipes

good cocktail... i love that margarita... thanks


I too am a Housewife fan, I watch them all. I teared up a little when I found out Gretchen's fiancee lost his battle to cancer. I thought, well, who's going to keep her in motorcycles and bling?

And the drink? I can't wait to try it out.
