Here's the Skinny

Lei Chic If your life were a Real Housewives reality show, you know just which friend you'd cast as crazy-eyes Ramona, drama-queen Jill, social-climber Alex, fake-boobs Kelly and just-plain-fake LuAnn.

And as for self-promoting skinny girl Bethenny? Well, you hate to typecast, but you've always been the fittest of your friends. And you do love to cook yummy, healthy dinners (complete with low-cal cocktails!) for everyone you know.

So when you need to stir up the scene a little at your next party, take a cue from Bethenny herself. Serve SkinnyGirl Margaritas.

Created by Frankel, a natural foods chef and mixologist, as an alternative to the typical sugar-packed versions, the pre-mixed cocktails are made with premium blue agave tequila, lime juice, triple sec, and natural sweetener agave nectar.

They just arrived on Oahu's shores last week and are only available at one liquor store so far.

And since the preservative-free drinks weigh in at only 100 calories per four-ounce, you can take countless sips for all the times the Countess says “Dahhhling”.

And still be a real glass act.

SkinnyGirl Margaritas are available at SWAM Wine, 98-1277 Kaahumanu Street, Aiea, 808.487.7926.
