Amazon.com Review

How do we maintain or lose weight without giving up small pleasures in life like a night out on the town with the girls or a stiff martini after a long day at the office? That was the question that prompted me to begin looking at alcohol differently. Instead of trying to avoid it, I'd prefer to find ways to modify recipes and habits so I can still enjoy my favorites. Hence the advent of SkiinnyTinis! I was so proud of my concoctions and revelations that I felt compelled to share them with the rest of the social drinkers who share my struggle. The recipes in this book have been tested, and users have rated them just as tasty as their high-calorie counterparts (if not tastier). The only difference? They have less than half the calories.

I am so happy I bought this book! I love a good cocktail and this book is full of FABULOUS low calorie cocktails. All of the original skinnytinis sound amasing and I can't wait to try every single one. The skinny tidbits and Earn Your Party sections are a great bonus to the recipes. So far I have sampled the Skinny Margartia, the Skinny Pina Colada and the Cabo Sunset and they all tasted great! I'm not a big fan of artificial sweetners and was worried that I wouldn't like these recipes. But I couldn't even tell they were low-cal. Next up...the Skinny Chocolate Martini!

This informative book offers the latest tips for women to create their own cocktails at any time, using a variety of mixers! This has opened up a whole new world of drink ideas for me, especially when going out. I especially love the Cactus Chill, made with agave nectar and tequila and the skinny Bellintini, made with champagne and sugar-free peach syrup! The pictures and commentary in the book make you want to try them all!

Love this book - every bar (or kitchen cabinet) must have one. Finally, a reasonable solution for those of us that exercise, eat right and try to stay in those "skinny jeans" without blowing it in one night out with the girls. Love the vanilla chaitini... yum, and how about the skinny cosmo? It's about time. Sex and the City girls will need this for the next movie! This book is easy to use - and a reason in itself to have a get together. A must have.....

What a great book of drink recipes! I loved being able to make these super easy drinks - sometimes recipes get too difficult, but not these! And they are so super yummy! I am going to use these at my upcoming bridal shower and wedding! I sneaked a few to the finace and he did not notice they were lo-cal! GREAT IDEA!

I just received this book and I'm so excited to try all the recipes! I've already made the Skinny Appletini, and it's to die for; plus it has 54% fewer calories than the original recipe! I've been struggling with the dreaded pre-wedding diet, and so many diet books tell you to stop drinking all together. Well--with a bridal shower, bachlorette party, and the stress of planning a wedding--I need to make room in my diet for the occasional drink. SkinnyTinis is the perfect solution--I'm recommending it to all my girlfriends!

Although I haven't actually tried the recipes yet, all my favorite beverages are in here, and then some. I can't wait to try the lower-calorie versions of martinis and other cocktails. There are pictures of the drinks throughout the book, which makes it nice, and it gives the calorie count for each beverage.

Such a wonderfully put together book. I have been in the weight loss field since 1993 and never have I come accross a solution for anyone who would like to have a drink for minimal calories and still feel good about weight loss or maintaining their weight. Definately worth getting this book for yourself or as a gift!
