Drinkin' Skinny

Tequila just makes thing better.

When tequila is mixed with an all-natural, good-tasting, good-for-you product – things get awesome.

Bethenny Frankel may have created the Skinnygirl Margarita (with tequila mixed in), but Drink Skinny LLC, based in Tilton, N.H., took their idea a step further. With non-alcoholic drink mixes in Original Margarita and Pineapple Mango flavors (and soon, a Pomegranate-Blueberry flavor), the husband and wife duo behind Drink Skinny knows what it takes to make a good cocktail.

The days of calorie-ridden sour mixes are long gone – thank goodness. Drink Skinny is made with Agave Nectar and natural Stevia (at only 20-30 calories a pop), and doesn’t include the high fructose corn syrup that most margarita mixes do.

Christy Cegelski, the “wife” behind Drink Skinny, even uses her mixes in cocktails like mojitos and tropical breezes. Because the mixes don’t already contain alcohol, they’re extremely versatile. And trust me when I tell you – they’re tasty. I tried the original mix with tequila (naturally), and it was almost dangerous – the mix was slightly sweet, yet ultra refreshing – and not a hint of sourness was detected. It went down easy. Too easy.

The Pineapple Mango flavor I mixed with vodka and seltzer, which was also a light and refreshing cocktail. The mix was so flavorful, I actually had a second glass with just seltzer – a combination I’ve literally been thinking about ever since.

Drink Skinny is available at several stores throughout New Hampshire and New England. Each bottle is priced at $14.00, and shipping is free if you purchase two or more. And since there’s no alcohol in the mix – you can easily have them shipped to you here in Boston.

If you could make any cocktail with these Drink Skinny mixers, what cocktail would you make and why?

Disclaimer: Drink Skinny LLC sent me samples of their mixers to try, free of charge. Despite their generosity, the opinions expressed in this post are honest and 100 percent my own. 


  1. Thanks for such a glowing review! The good news for our Mass neighbors is that we're working our way into the state! You can find Drink Skinny at Whole Foods Markets in Hingham & Cambridge (Prospect St.) and at Leary's Fine Wines & Spirits in Newburyport--more locations to come!

  2. Perfect! Thanks for letting us know, Christy. :)

  3. It is great to hear about "skinny" mixers. The blueberry pomegranate sounds fantastic!

  4. These sound so interesting... and they're available right down the street from me. That could be dangerous!

  5. Mmmmm... I will definitely have to find where these are available near me!
