Skinny Girl Margarita Review

Skinny Girl Margarita Review

I enjoy a delicious margarita every now and then when I eat at certain restaurants. I have never been able to make one at home that tastes right, it’s either too strong, not enough lime juice or the salt just doesn’t stay on the rim. Besides, margaritas have a lot of calories in them (approximately 500 calories in a 4 oz restaurant margarita) and if they are not good, then they are not worth the calories.

I had the opportunity to try Skinny Girl Margarita recently and I am in love!

Here’s the skinny on Skinny Girl Margarita:

  • 100 Calories for a 4 oz glass
  • 100% Natural
  • Lightly sweetened with Agave Nectar
  • Made with Premium Blue Agave Clear Tequila

I will admit, I was a bit skeptical since I have tried other pre-made margaritas and mixes and have not been impressed. I prefer all natural foods so I was eager to give this a try.

I know you’re wondering…what does it taste like? Well, I personally loved it! I think it is perfectly balanced! Truly, I would have never guessed this was a pre-made margarita or made with all natural ingredients if I received it in a restaurant. I could taste the lime, tequila and salt but it was all in perfect harmony. And…at 100 calories a glass! That’s equivalent to a glass of wine and just as easy to pour for those days when mommy needs to unwind!

Skinny Girl Margarita was created by Bethenny Frankel, a renowned natural foods chef, author of New York Times Best Seller, Naturally Thin, and star of the Real Housewives of New York City.

If you love margaritas but don’t want all the extra calories and high fructose corn syrup that many contain, then I highly recommend you try Skinny Girl Margarita. My local Total Wine store carries it for $12.99 a bottle. It’s definitely worth it and I will be serving it at my next function. To find your local retailer, click here.

  1. I’ll be running out this weekend to find some of this!!!

  2. It’s really delicious. I don’t know if I will ever order a margarita from a restaurant again…they just won’t come close to this tasty little all natural beverage! Plus, I don’t feel quite as guilty enjoying this!

  3. I’m so addicted I started a blog dedicated to the drink!

    Really?? Maybe I’m drinking a knockoff of what you drank, because this description doesn’t seem to apply to the Skinnygirl margarita I tried today. I poured it over rocks, and did not add salt. After one taste I felt my face in voluntarily screw up in a puckered mien. My husband said I looked like Renee Zellweger, and that is NOT good. As misery loves company I encouraged him to try it. Perhaps the taste was in my head, maybe my tastebuds were on strike. And then I saw his eyes take on a stricken look as he took a cautious sip. This drink is too salty, lacks a nice tequila taste, with an odd aftertaste much like alkaseltzer. I am glad I got it on sale, however, am disappointed I bought into the hype.

  5. I tried another bottle of Skinny Girl Margarita after my review and was disappointed as well. Not sure if it was a bad bottle or what, but it didn’t live up to my initial review. I would definitely grab a nice glass of my favorite wine which is about the same amount of calories and not be disappointed going forward.

    I adore Bethenny Frankel and everything she is about–I have for a few years now. The woman behind the label has been, in my opinion, its highest selling point; not only in part to the exposure the brand was afforded on television, but because Bethenny stands exemplary of empowerment and success for women across North America. Her promotion of a healthy lifestyle is relatable to many and something more people are becoming increasingly inclined to align with.

    Needless to say, my excitement to try Skinnygirl the second it hit the Canadian market was palpable — but lest the name we changed to BLOATYgirl, something must immediately be done to remedy that salt content! 125 g. of sodium per 125 ml. is an outrageous and exaggerated proportion. FAR TOO SALTY. Puffiness, to any degree, is nevvvver a fabulous look.

    To maintain its image trajectory of catering to the health conscious, (and fabulous) female, I would strongly suggest the product be tweaked to significantly lessen the salt content. At its current ratio, myself and my girlfriends shudder at the thought of imbibing only to wake up looking like an overly inflated version of our pre-margarita selves. Ick.

    Here’s hoping Beam Global recognizes it would be far more in their interests to CUT BACK THE SALT as there is a much more successful ad campaign at hand in the low-sodium distinction/catering to the health conscious than there is in providing something that gets lost in the commonplace sea of sodium laden cocktails that are on the market today.

    Additionally, ensuring people can be confident indulging in this otherwise delicious cocktail TRULY guilt-free would be the perfect re-branding opportunity given this latest Whole Foods litigation fiasco….@Unemployed Mom: since you initially had rapport with the company, perhaps you could contact them again and bring some of these concerns that your forum has produced/highlighted herein to their attention in an effort to perfect or re-direct a product that was moving in a good direction?
