Read from the Book
Welcome to the Skinny Life Ever had a Long Island iced tea and wondered why you couldn't button your pants the next day? It's because you drank an extra 700 calories-and that's if you had only one drink! It happens to the best of us. We know a glass of wine won't do much damage, but when everyone at the table is ordering frosty beers...well, what do you think happens? We obviously get drink envy and go for it. And sometimes on the first gorgeous day of the season, the only thing that will hit the spot is a blended strawberry margarita. Or a mojito. Or a flirty cocktail. You get the picture. Everyone likes to let loose and have a drink sometimes, but no one wants that drink to go right to their thighs. Even so, whether you're planning on kicking back after a hectic day or vamping it up for a night out, the last thing you want to do is obsess about calories. Tell me you haven't been here and I'll be shocked: "How many calories are in this drink? Can I have more than one? Will I be able to go to the beach tomorrow and not be mistaken for a distant relative of Shamu?" Talk about a buzz kill. Enter Skinny Cocktails, a woman's must-have cocktail companion. Including no-fear recipes, easy-access calorie counts, and minimal-damage mixers, this will be your dream guide to a stress-free skinny life. And lucky for you, this book is probably small enough to fit in your purse. Maybe not in your tiny clutch, but you can't fool me. I know you own more than one bag, sistah. With Skinny Cockt
