On March 2, 2014, I attended the Red Carpet Viewing event with Bethenny Frankel, friends, and Skinnygirl Cocktails. The party had about 20 attendees and was held in a suite at the Andaz Hotel, West Hollywood, a short distance from the Dolby Theater where the Oscars were held. There was a selection of hors d’oeuvres and the 6 varieties of Skinnygirl cocktails. There was also a professional makeup artist team applying glamour makeup, which was fun.
Bethenny demonstrated how to make one of her latest cocktails, Skinnygirl Starlet. It is made with Meyer Lemon Vodka, club soda and a splash of sugar free lemonade. It has a sweet, tart taste, and it’s easy not to detect the alcohol. There was also the Skinnygirl Glitz & Glam made with white cherry vodka, diet cola, and cherries for garnish. The Skinnygirl collection has a line of 19 vodka and wine drinks which is low calorie and guilt free. That’s what women want in a cocktail. Luckily, she has also introduced non alcohol sparklers with flavors such as pineapple coconut and tangerine mango. There is also a line of Skinnygirl nutrition bars and Bethenny is planning to expand her food line with sauces. Bethenny was very personable and looked amazingly fit in her white artistic design dress and royal blue high heels. I asked how she stays so fit and it’s yoga. She also has a line of body shape wear. Even if she has no intention of doing another show, Bethenny is an amazing business woman who doesn’t stop and is always building her Skinnygirl brand which is a positive influence for women.
