Skinnygirl MargaritasDeerfield, Ill.-based Beam Inc.’s Skinnygirl Cocktails brand introduced two new low-calorie, ready-to-serve additions to the Margarita category: Skinnygirl Sweet’arita and Skinnygirl Sparkling Margarita. Both offerings are available nationwide this month.

“I am so excited to introduce Skinnygirl Sweet’arita and Skinnygirl Sparkling Margarita to our growing portfolio and to offer fans a new way to enjoy a great-tasting cocktail without the guilt,” said Bethenny Frankel, founder of Skinnygirl Cocktails, in a statement. “These fun twists on the original Skinnygirl Margarita are both delicious and refreshing, and now I feel like there’s truly a Skinnygirl Margarita out there for everyone."

The 19.9-proof beverage is available in 750-ml and 1.75-liter bottles with suggested retail prices of $12.99 and $19.99, respectively.
