Sip on these Skinny Cocktails During the Golden Globes

Yes, awards season has officially begun, and yes, there a million entertainment awards shows on the horizon to honor everyone in Hollywood. But none of them compare to the buzz and excitement of the Golden Globes. 


This year, the dynamic comedy duo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hosting again. The two comedic geniuses last year proved that anything men can do, women can do funnier and better. (Remember this Hunger Games zinger?) We CANNOT wait to see what they have in store this year, you guys. I'm counting down the minutes until showtime. 

Aside from the hilarious hosts, the Golden Globes have always been the most fun because everyone can (and does) enjoy some lovely libations. By the second statue is awarded, Hollywood's finest all have a nice buzz going. By hour three, people are feeling so good, they can't even tell if they've won or lost. 

Since we don't want to miss out on all the fun, we're certainly going to be sipping on some cocktails while we watch the 71st Golden Globes on Jan. 12. And even though we don't have a haute couture gown to slip into for the ceremony, we still want to stick to our New Year's resolutions of living a healthier lifestyle.

These tasty movie and TV-themed cocktails, courtesy of Skinnygirl, are fruity and delicious without packing any unwanted sugar or calories. The easiest way to mix up a healthier mixed drink is to start with Skinnygirl vodka, wine or prosecco, which are already low-cal. Then add some fresh fruit, club soda and some other natural ingredients for a luscious libation.

Take a look at some of our favorite Skinnygirl drinks, and serve them up at your Golden Globes watch party. If you're watching the program live, be sure to join Celebrations and Skinnygirl during a Twitter watch party using the hashtag  #LetsDrinkToThat. 

Delicious cocktails that are tasty and low in calories? We'll drink to that! 

Outer Space Spritzer

Mix up this fizzy, citrusy drink for a sweet treat that's "out of this world." OK that was really cheesy, but it's better than being stranded in outer space like Sandra Bullock and George Clooney were in Gravity.

 

Ingredients
  • 2 parts of Skinnygirl™ Prosecco
  • 2 parts limeade
  • Lime wheels for garnish (optional)
  • Sweetener (optional)
Directions

Add all ingredients into a stemless wine glass. Enjoy!

 

Danger on the Horizon

There may have been danger on the horizon for Tom Hanks as Captain Phillips, but this drink is nothing but sunny and delicious. Enjoy this refreshing and fruity drink!

 

 

Ingredients
  • 1 part Skinnygirl™ Cucumber Vodka
  • 1 part DeKuyper® Pucker® Sour Apple Schnapps
  • Squeeze of fresh lime
  • 2 parts seltzer
  • Lime wedge for garnish
Directions

Shake ingredients vigorously in a cocktail shaker. Pour into cocktail glass over ice with a lime wedge for garnish.

 

The Prosperous Predator

Leonardo DiCaprio's portrayal of Jordan Bellfort in The Wolf of Wall Street showed the white collar criminal enjoying the finer things in life (to a dangerous excess). And while Skinnygirl Cucumber Vodka isn't bottled with diamonds, it tastes so refreshing and luxurious, you'll think you're spending the day on a yacht. Before it gets sunk in the ocean.

 

 

Ingredients
  • 1 ½ parts Skinnygirl™ Cucumber Vodka
  • 3 parts soda water
  • Cucumber wheel for garnish
Directions

Combine ingredients over ice and garnish with a cucumber wheel.

 

Magnificent Mary Pop

The behind-the-scened story of Mary Poppins came to life thanks to Tom Hanks' portrayal of Walt Disney in Saving Mr. Banks. We're not sure if Disney's famous nanny enjoyed a cocktail or two, but we're sure this Bellini drink goes down smoother than a spoonful of sugar. 

 

Ingredients
  • 3 parts Skinnygirl™ Prosecco
  • 2 parts peach puree
Directions

Place ingredients in blender and blend on high until smooth. Pour into a flute glass and enjoy!
