So if I didn't love Bethenny Frankel already, learning how many points are in her cocktails would have done the trick!
Who doesn't enjoy a nice cocktail after a long day? I know that all week I am really good and I save my points for Friday and Saturday nights. My Fiance treats me to dinner on the weekends and I have to make sure I have enough points. The hardest part for me was figuring out if I want to eat a lighter meal and have an extra cocktail or not have a cocktail and enjoy a fantastic burger. Sitting at my desk, I asked myself, "Weight Watchers should come up with a low point cocktail." That was when the light bulb went off and I did some research on Skinny Girl Cocktails!
Did you know?
A Skinny Girl Margarita has 5 point for every 5oz? It sounds too good to be true, right? Well do if you do the math this is how it breaks down.
In a 750ml bottle of SKM, there are only 3oz of tequilla in the whole bottle. That breaks town to .5 oz per 5oz of the drink. That being said, if 1 oz of tequilla is 4 points, then .5 and oz is 2. That is a 2 point drink! Using the same math, vodka cocktails are 2 points and the wines are 2pts as well! Naturally the sangria will be more because it has a higher carb and sugar content. CORRECTION: Sangria is 4pts!
Go get your skinny on girls and enjoy your weekends....Guilt-free!
