OUR GIRLS OF SUMMER

Kick off summer with our new girls:

Our hot foursome has it all!

GLAM UP YOUR GLASSWARE

Paper cups? Not at your party! Get into the summer spirit with charming mason jars, rimmed with everything from sprinkles to fresh mint. Deck out your glasses with playful straws in vibrant hues and patterns like polka dots and stripes, along with pretty ribbons adorned with nametags to ensure your ladies won’t lose their drinks. As a bonus, the multipurpose jars can double as décor, like shabby-chic candleholders and vases, or adorable individual serving dishes.

Can’t get away? Take a stay-cation instead! Accessorize your cocktails with tropical touches like umbrellas, palm tree swizzle sticks, hibiscus petals and star-shaped pineapple. And here’s a smooth pouring move: Pre-mix drinks in a fresh fruit-filled pitcher for even sweeter sips. Another instant upgrade: ditch plastic cutlery in favor of far classier bamboo sets. See, you can entertain with elegance, even outside! – back to top

KEEP YOUR COOL

The best way to beat the heat: stay hydrated with plenty of water. Encourage your girls to drink up by adding in cucumber slices, berries or mint. And let your ladies catch a summer breeze even on the driest of days by passing out handheld fans.

Other essentials: hot-hued towels, so your beach buddies can easily spot you on the sand; a picnic blanket large enough to fit your girls and your grub; the latest juicy read; trendy shades; a sarong and cardigan for an effortless day-to-night transition; and of course, a lady’s BFF: SPF! – back to top

SET THE MOOD

Create a fab outdoor lounge worthy of your ladies. For chic seats, pretty up patio furniture with an array of comfy, colorful cushions, and drape light blankets on top – trust us, your girls will thank you when temperatures drop.

Music can make – or break! – your bash. To get the party started, fill your playlist with girly summer anthems. And don’t forget to bring portable speakers for beach getaways and grassy get-togethers.

A little mood lighting goes a long way. Get glowing after dark by hanging paper lanterns, creating candlelit pathways and stringing festive lights around trees. Another bright idea: place tealights inside empty Skinnygirl® Cocktails bottles for a crafty centerpiece. For a truly magical moment, end the night by lighting sparklers in unison with your girls. Now that you have the goods, get out there and make this a summer to remember with Skinnygirl® Cocktails! – back to top

Grilling with the Girls: Grilled Salad Recipe

Want to glam up your barbecue? Grab some greens and get your grill on with the girls! – back to top

INGREDIENTS:

For the salad:

  • 1 head of romaine lettuce
  • 1 bag (12 oz.) shelled edamame
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup Marcona almonds, chopped
  • 2 ounces shaved Parmesan Cheese
  • Olive oil for grilling
  • Salt and pepper

For the miso vinaigrette:

  • 2 tbsp. white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. light or white miso paste
  • ½ tsp. soy sauce
  • ½ tsp. Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

DIRECTIONS:

For the Miso Vinaigrette:
Combine first four ingredients and whisk together. Slowly whisk in olive oil. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.

Assemble the salad:
If you use frozen, shelled edamame, first rinse under hot water in a colander for at least 30 seconds. Set aside. Cut the head of romaine lettuce into fourths, making sure the core remains intact. Brush your medium-hot grill with olive oil, and arrange each quarter of romaine lengthwise across the grate so it lays perpendicular to the slats. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill each side for about 45 seconds, turning once with tongs. Remove from grill to a cutting board. Cut out core and divide lettuce onto four salad plates. Top each plate with ¼ of edamame, cranberries and almonds. Shave ½ ounce of Parmesan cheese onto each salad. Serve with miso vinaigrette.
