(Deerfield, Ill.) -- Entrepreneur, TV personality, and New York Times Best Selling Author, Bethenny Frankel began a craze on the first season of The Real Housewives of New York City with her lower-calorie Skinnygirl Margarita. After just 2 years of success and acquiring hundreds of thousands of devoted fans, Bethenny introduces the new girl, Skinnygirl Sangria.
“Beam Global Spirits & Wine is excited to introduce fans to the follow up to the acclaimed margarita, Skinnygirl Sangria” says General Manager of the Mixables Category Brand Team at Beam, Pryce Greenow. “The outpouring of enthusiasm for the brand and its next innovations has been remarkable and we’re looking forward to giving fans what they’ve been waiting for.”
Skinnygirl Sangria is lightly sweetened with natural fruit essence and is just over 100 calories per serving. This refreshing cocktail has a smooth and soft finish with minimal bite at the end that will please those new to sangria and sangria enthusiasts. Frankel recommends accessorizing the pre-mixed, ready-to-serve cocktail over ice with a slice of orange or mandarin. Skinnygirl Sangria is made with white grapes, so no cause for concern for light-colored furniture or clothing when serving up a tall glass at house parties or ordering the cocktail out on the town.
“Following the success of the Skinnygirl Margarita, I asked my fans which cocktail they wanted next and that’s how Skinnygirl Sangria was created,” says Bethenny Frankel, who serves as the committed brand collaborator, innovator and ambassador for Skinnygirl Cocktails. “It’s a smooth, delicious, year-round staple which can be made your own by accessorizing it with fruit.”
Skinnygirl Sangria is available in select retailers for a suggested retail price of $14.99 for a 750 ml. bottle. It will be available nationwide by the end of the summer.
