Read an Excerpt

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 Cocktails you can be trim and toasted. Skinny and sauced. Beautiful and belligerent. Well, maybe we don't want to get belligerent. Let's keep it classy, ladies. Written by the publishers of number one industry insider Bartender Magazine, this book is a must-have for calorie-conscious women like you who still want to enjoy the drinks they love. After all, you shouldn't have to lose the glamour of having a few cocktails with your girls for anything. With a little consideration before you booze, the top bartenders in America will teach you that making drinks (and slyly keeping track of calories) can be as satisfying and effortless as slipping on your Little Black Dress.

So put on your skinny jeans, call your girlfriends, shake up some cocktails...and get ready for your best night out yet!

This is a very small compilation of material that is already free and readily available on line. Not breaking any new ground whatsoever. If you are getting it free what the heck but DON'T pay for this. Just look online. There's a lot more available out there.

I don't know what book the previous poster read, but this is a terrific collection of drinks that cut down on calories, but not on flavor. There are even recipes for non-alcoholic cousins to these drinks. We have tried 5 or 6 of them so far and enjoyed them...more to come! As for the rant that all of this is available online......so are recipes and nutrition facts for just about anything you can think of....it's great to have this collection all in one convenient place. Highly recommended...especially if you are entertaining for the holidays (or anytime).
