It’s a mouthful to say, but this martini tastes so good, you won’t mind the long name. If you have a summer herb garden, you’re one step ahead of the game.
Drink Skinny Strawberry-Rosemary Martini
1.5 oz shot red berry vodka
4 oz original Drink Skinny Margarita Mix
1-2 fresh strawberries
3-4 sprigs fresh rosemary
Muddle strawberries and rosemary w/vodka in a cocktail shaker (if you want a stronger flavor, let it sit for a few minutes). Add Drink Skinny and ice and shake. Using the cocktail shaker’s strainer, pour into a martini glass and garnish w/a strawberry and a sprig of rosemary. Yum!

I love the initial tang of sour apple martinis, but just can’t make it past the weird syrupy after taste and the faux green color reminiscent of a park bench…I mean, it looks pretty and all, but I don’t even want to know what kind of chemical cocktail (pun intended) they use to make it so dark.
Well, with the discovery of Absolut Orient Apple vodka, we were able to make a sour apple martini using Drink Skinny original that’s tangy and crisp, without any faux anything. We’re pretty sure you won’t miss the park bench shade of green. ~Christy

Sangria is one of my favorite recipes to make with our mixes. I love trying out different wine & fruit combinations, and never quite get the same concoction twice, but trust me, they’re all good!
When the temperature goes down a bit in the fall, we switch to red wine sangria mode. There are so many different reds available, you can really adjust the level of sweetness in this recipe depending on the variety you choose (we typically use a blended red.) Try it out, and let us know what you think!
Drink Skinny Red Wine Sangria:
1 bottle of red wine (we like Our Daily Red organic California table wine–no sulfites = no headache!)
1 bottle of Drink Skinny pomegranate blueberry Margarita Mix
1 can seltzer
Fruit of your choice (we use mostly citrus fruits & throw in a few pieces of whatever’s in season)
1) Chop fruit & place it into a large pitcher. 2) Pour wine into the pitcher, filling about 2/3 of the way. 3) Next, pour Drink Skinny mix in (leaving room for seltzer). 4) Add 1/2-1 can of seltzer (to taste). 5) Add ice, stir, & serve!
