Are you planning on watching the Oscars Sunday? Perhaps you’re throwing a little soiree in honor of the event. Normally I wouldn’t be watching; By 7:00pm my kids have usually monopolized the television. But as you might have seen on Instagram, several SkinnyGirl Cocktails recently arrived at my doorstep for a little gathering I’m hosting on Sunday night.
This week I started a limited calorie diet, so this couldn’t have come at a better time.
Of all of those shown above, I’ve only tried the Skinnygirl Margarita. I had no idea that so many other adult beverages had been added to the product line. A few weeks ago I stopped at the liquor store for a bottle of wine when I noticed Skinnygirl Vodkas. I’m really excited to try the new drinks as are my guests.
In keeping with the skinny theme, my plan is to serve up some delicious, low calorie appetizers that we can munch on while we enjoy our cocktails. Tonight I have to pick up ingredients for the food and drinks. I’m going to visit the supermarket and browse for other ideas, but so far I know I’m going to make hummus, lite buffalo chicken dip with celery, and mini cucumber tuna “sandwiches”. Of the Skinnygirl provided drink recipes, I’m most looking forward to serving this:
1 1/2 parts Skinnygirl Cucumber Vodka
2 parts club soda
Splash no sugar added cranberry juice
Directions: Pour over ice, garnish with a lime wedge or cucumber slice.
I was also sent a complete party toolkit which you can download for free right here. I’ll be making a step and repeat and plan on using the fun bottle labels. We can have fun making predictions on the winning nominees and I may even reward the winning guessers – you’ll just have to wait and see!
First things first – I’m headed out to shop for the necessities. Including a cocktail shaker!
Skinnygirl sent me the drinks, gifts and other items for the party in exchange for the pre and post party updates.
