SKINNYGIRL, THE WINE COLLECTION
Skinnygirl takes a brand that is trusted and loved by women and extends it to the largest beverage alcohol category and the one they consume most. The brand's first foray into wine offers California White Blend, California Red Blend and California Rose, three offerings that perfectly match the taste preference of the consumer. At 100 calories per 5 oz. serving, which is 15% lower than the other wines*, each blend is fruit-forward and pleasantly drinkable with a definitive wine profile. Skinnygirl Cocktails offers a modern, stress-free way to enjoy wine. Available May 2012 at a suggested retail price of $14.99.
SKINNYGIRL VODKA WITH NATURAL FLAVORS
Skinnygirl enters the largest category in the spirits industry with four lower-calorie, great-tasting flavors including Bare Naked, Tangerine, Island Coconut and Cucumber. Each is naturally flavored and provides a unique and exciting option for the Skinnygirl consumer. With at least 20% fewer calories than other vodka brands**, Skinnygirl provides a high-quality, low-calorie base that allows women to design their own cocktail for the first time. Available May 2012 at a suggested retail price of $21.99.
SKINNYGIRL PINA COLADA
Skinnygirl Cocktails is the first to offer consumers a cream-free, low-calorie version of a drink that can hit over 800 calories and is typically only consumed on vacation. At under 100 calories per 4 oz. serving, Skinnygirl achieves the impossible by presenting a guiltless pleasure that instantly provides that feel-good vacation vibe. Available May 2012 at a suggested retail price of $14.99.
Skinnygirl Cocktails is thrilled to present the new Skinnygirl family. From Ready To Serve (Margarita, Sangria, White Cranberry Cosmo and Pina Colada) to Ready To Mix (Vodka with Natural Flavors) to Ready To Enjoy (Wine), Skinnygirl continues to raise the bar by breaking the rules and redefining women's cocktailing needs.
