I’m blaming @Bethenny Frankel for my fatter ass.

I’m turning into a lush. This should come at no surprise to anyone who knows me or my family, considering I’ve been drinking beer since I was old enough to fetch and open the bottles for my dad. It’s too bad that I don’t like beer now, because beer is cheap and comparatively low in calories to the drinks I like.

Margaritas? My drink of choice.

Sangria? My close second drink of choice.

Anything pomegranatey with vodka? My WOO HOO, GIRL’S NIGHT drink of choice.

Free alcohol? Yes, please, and keep them coming.

Unfortunately, all of those drinky poos that I love are relatively high in calories.

[Note: "Relatively high" means "so high that I don't want to know."]

I’m a child of 80s television which in a small way means I’m easily swayed by commercialism. If it’s on TV and someone I think I like says it’s good, I’ll try it.

You can guess what comes next.

I want a Skinny Girl Margarita.

ready-to-drink margarita + lower calories + created by a reality TV star = Mama wants her some Skinny Girl Margaritas

My local liquor store is a carrier of the ready-to-drink Skinny Girl Margarita. You know, if they had any. Apparently (and of course I knew this from watching Bethenny Ever After, but I figured my one little liquor store would have the last bottle) they are very popular and sell out as soon as they’re stocked and don’t restock for months at a time.

This leaves me stuck with no Skinny Girl Margaritas.

I’m blaming Bethenny Frankel for the extra 20 pounds I’ll be putting on my ass because I have to drink regular super-calorie ready-to-drink margaritas.

Oh, girl – you’ve got to try “Sinless Margarita” mix. It’s in the refrigerated section of the liquor store (you have to add tequila). Sugar free, 5 calories per serving and tastes better than regular mix! It’s like a hug from Jesus!

So basically what you’re saying..is that you need to have a camp-out at the liquor store? I’d be down for that. As long as they have wi-fi. And something to mix with.

Ok…this takes a little work but it’s totally worth it and is as just as skinny…all you need is tequila, limes and agave nectar. The squeezing of the limes is the hardest part but that is what men are for (also, the sex and taking out the garbage). I think we just do equal parts tequila and lime juice (don’t use the kind that comes in the fake lime bottle – it will not taste the same, trust me) and then some agave nectar to taste. Ok, it’s clear I don’t really know the exact recipe but I think it’s on the bottle of agave nectar. There. Now you don’t need Bethenny but you will need a lime squeezer.

My liquor store is hit or miss with Skinny Girl Margaritas, too! And ironically enough, that is EXACTLY what I look like when they are out.

I will say they do not taste like diet anything. In fact, they are simply delicious – a combo of sweet but not too sweet with a dash of saltiness. It’s really awesome. But here’s a tip – do not put it in the freezer. It will turn into a block of ice. Which does not pour very well.

Well didn’t you watch the bottling plant episode? They are churnin’ those puppies out as fast as they can. Sheesh! ;-)

Hand to God, I was in the liquor store a couple hours ago on a quest for Skinny Girl Margarita’s, after having some ladies on The Twittah rave about it. I wandered up and down the aisles, not wanting to have to ask the elderly MALE cashier for the Skinny Girl Margaritas, with no luck. I finally sucked it up and asked, bad idea. He went off on a tangent about supply, demand, and getting screwed.

I ended up leaving with head down and a six pack of calorie laden Bacardi Mojitos.

I need to know if this stuff is good! Because I never wanted to try it until I saw the episode with her and Jason visiting the plant a la Lavern and Shirley. Then I got a weepy eyed for the gal fulfilling her dream and wanted a skinny girl margarita.
Was it worth sending the husband out for?
Best,
Tina

Now I’m not quite so embarrassed to follow Bethenny on Twitter.

Yay for the husband finding it!
