Exclusive Invite to the Party of the Summer

Despite not necessarily living in the same city, state or even country, we all tend to share one very good friend.

This friend is loyal, supportive, trustworthy and best of all, knows how to bring up our spirits when we feel as if a garbage truck filled with dirty diapers took a dump on our moods.

This friend… Alcohol.

Skinny Girl Cocktails

While I myself do not personally drink, I have been known to have heart-to-heart conversations with bottles of alcohol.

GiGi drinking Skinny Girl Cocktails

You do NOT want to know what we are talking about here….

Wait, maybe you do…

We’re actually just formally introducing ourselves! I’ve never met Skinny Girl Cocktails before so it’s only polite of me to get to know them! Apparently this line of low-calorie, alcoholic beverages’ mother is Bethenny Frankel… You know, from The Apprentice and The Real Housewives?!

Bethenny Frankel with GiGi Dubois and Tara Redfield

After dishing about how outlandishly kooky James Franco is, how it feels to be judged by your grape and what it would be like to frolic through a field filled with marshmallow fluff and rainbow sprinkles, I (with the help of the lovely Food Pervert, but of course) came up with the brilliant idea of throwing a WINE PARTY so Skinny Girl Cocktails could meet others…

And you’re ALL INVITED!

Skinny Girl Cocktail Wine Party

Skinny Girl Cocktails!

When: Right now

Where: Right here

Why: Because who doesn’t love making new friends?

RSVP: By watching the latest GiGi Eats video… Where The Food Pervert and I pair some delicious party appetizers with Skinny Girl Prosecco and Skinny Girl Cabernet Sauvignon!

Is drool dribbling down your chin? Well, wipe it off ASAP – because that’s GROSS and not exactly wine party classy… (Wait, who am I kidding…) And then check out the recipes for the scrumptious apps that’ll kick you in the pants from the flavor! (You may want to wear a cup gentlemen, just sayin’)

    • ;) The funny thing is, I don’t drink either! HA HA. But I DO CEVICHE IT UP!!

      Thank you for watching and coming to our PARTAYY!!

  2. For a moment I thought you were inviting us all to a great wine party at your place…bummer…
    Mike@TheIronYou recently posted..Almond Flaxseed Yogurt “Granola” BarsMy Profile

    • This is the preliminaries to the party, you watch the video… You’re then invited to the truly exclusive shindig at my abode! ;)

  3. “I wanna go to Miami,” is a whine that I’ve heard :-)

    Diet Coke shaken not stirred!

    Never heard of them till your Breaking News!

    How do I unwind? HaHa!! Good one!

    My best drunken stories are all about my needing to put other peoples faces back together again due to results of their drinking because I have never been drunk!
    Dr. J recently posted..Dr. J’s 10 Success KillersMy Profile

    • Oh wow, I am not so sure I want to hear those drunken stories, however, you should share your experiences with the younger crowd that just doesn’t understand that alcohol should be consumed in MODERATION!!! ;)

  4. I LOVE me some wine! Especially when paired with good appetizers and these look amazing!

  5. I loooove crostinis! Never tried Skinny Girl cocktails, but I definitely admire Bethenny Frankel for her business savvy! I’d love to sell my company for a bazillion dollars…guess that would mean I’d have to START a company first, wouldn’t it?
    Amy @ Long Drive Journey recently posted..BusyMy Profile

  6. Um can I just say I loveeee your questions haha? My drunken stories are all probably NSFP (not suitable for public). I was basically just one hot mess all of college.
    Cassie recently posted..Gluten Free Bagels with Chocolate Almond Cream Cheese [Product Review]My Profile

    • Oh anything is SUITABLE for the public over here on GIGI EATS – there is no judging! Just laughing along with you at the crazy stories! LOL! ;)

  7. Yup, wine fan here. And blue cheese too!

  8. Apples and Blue Cheese??!!! OMG!!! Heaven!!
    If I start to tell you my drunken stories, I would spam up your comment section. Seriously. I am grown up now (and still drink) – but I had some hilarious (aka embarrassing) nights between 15 and 25. Problem when you’re allowed drinking from the age of 14 in your country……

    Favorite drink is a strong and bitter Gin Tonic or of course dry sparkling wine, aka champagne!!
    Lucie@FitSwissChick recently posted..2nd Part of #LauraandLucie in Switzerland – the BirthdaypartMy Profile

    • OMG SPAM MY COMMENT SECTION! I don’t care, just do it! I need to hear these EPIC stories! LOL! Seriously – or write me an email, LMFAO!

  9. Shashi @ RunninSrilankan(dot)com says:

    Ok so am gonna be a total buzz-kill and say am not big into a-l-c-o-h-o-l (be it bubbly or warm and mature) but (yup there’s a BUT) -am totally digging those appetizers! YUM!

    • Ah ha ha! I am not really huge on alcohol either – I actually don’t drink because of my stomach! That doesn’t mean we cannot LOVE THESE APPETIZERS :D

  10. Skinny girl cocktails are good – especially when you want a margarita! That salmon ceviche looks amaze… you and your salmon, girl!

    Btw I’d love to hear your thoughts on the Jayz/Solange scandal…. haha!
    Jenn @ Skinny Opinion recently posted..Sick Day + Natural Cold RemediesMy Profile

    • Seriously GiGi + Salmon = the love affair of the century! LOL!!!!!

      OMG this scandal is totally being blown out of proportion! I mean, the only reason why it’s news is because these people are public figures, but I mean really – have you never gotten in a fight with a sibling/relative before?? Obviously S should have tried to keep her cool since she was in a public place, but Jay-Z obviously pissed her off and perhaps S was just super hungry??? She needs some salmon ceviche! LOL!

  11. Mmm that salmon ceviche looks bomb. And I’m happy to take all of the wine off your hands if you need :)
    Whitney @ To Live & Diet in L.A. recently posted..Make Like The Bachelor with a Neon Date DashMy Profile

  12. Hahahaha my favorite part of this video by far is when the cork flies out!! Your reaction is the b-e-s-t and so Kelly Ripa of you. And count me in for the wine partayyy!! I don’t really drink anymore (with the exception of this weekend– whoops) except for special occasions, buttt when I do I try to stick to something like Skinny Girl so I can enjoy the fun without the guilt!! If I could describe my personality by an alcohol or drink… ooh that’s hard, maybe a shot of vodka with a slice of lime because it’s wild and fun but also semi-responsible (if you don’t have too many)!! And a celeb I would want to drink with– Ryan Gosling or Jake Gyllenhaal all the way.
    Jordan @ The Blonde Vegan recently posted..Q&A with The Raw Food SistersMy Profile

    • OMG I wasn’t expecting that to happen AT ALL! Seriously, never opened a wine bottle before in my life, LMFAO!!!!!!!! I am so glad it was so Kelly Ripa of me! Perhaps I should tweet the video at her??? ;)

      Aw man, can I come to your happy hour with Ryan and Jake please? However, Jake needs to shave first, I am sorry, but he looks like a Burley tree trimmer right now! And when we are with them, I will allow you to have more than one shot of vodka with lime ;)

  13. I am packing for California to party with you girls! I love Skinny Girl and love the apps you made! If I bring some shrimp and salmon, can I come?
    Nice job on the cork flying! hahahaha!

  14. I’m totally in for the wine party!!!
    The drink that describes me – hmm…..it changes just like my drink preference changes from day to day!!!
    Love the way y’all have a wine party – opening that bottle was the funniest thing ever – glad you found the cork!!!
    Kim recently posted..Super Easy Chicken Soft TacosMy Profile

    • Ah ha ha! Except the cork did NOT fit back into the bottle, so you better believe Tara had to finish the Prosecco right then and there! ;)

  15. You met Bethenny you lucky bum! I adore her. If I was a drink I’d be my favorite vodka-water-lemon. It’s clean, refreshing, but strong with a little zing! ;)
    Lauren @ Focused To Be Fit recently posted..Food + Fitness This WeekMy Profile

    • She is one smart cookie!!! :) She actually invited me to her Oscar viewing party, I died….. DIED I TELL YOU! lol!

      Skinny Girl cocktails actually has a lemon vodka, YOU’D LOVE IT!!

  16. Gee, I don’t really drink alcohol mostly because of my DRUNKEN STORIES! Lets see there’s the time I threw up on my date. He came back for more and I peed on his welcome mat and he came back for more and… I got up on a table and sang “I need a man!” to a baseball team. SO yeah some people just shouldn’t drink they spoil the party for other people by peeing on their welcome mat.
    Cindy recently posted..Stay ‘in Alive!My Profile

    • Ah ha ha! I am at least proud of you for LEARNING from your drunken experiences!!! Because SO MANY PEOPLE DO NOT!!!

      OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!! That guy loved you! Let me guess, you married him? If you didn’t… PLEASE GO FIND HIM AND MARRY HIM! He sounds like a keeper because he clearly accepts you for you! :)

  17. I would like to join the wine party! :)
    (After 30 days though).

    I’m detoxing. And by detoxing, I basically just mean cutting all the wine out! WOOOO.
    Divya @ Eat. Teach. Blog. recently posted..Meal Planning ManiaMy Profile

    • Alright, in 30 days, we will have wine party # 2!!! Or you know what? I can just wait til my BIRTHDAY (June 26)! NO BIGGIE!

  18. Feel free to send all leftovers my way…not that the 12 bottles sitting out on my bar tray aren’t keeping me good company….Ya gotta work on your prosecco popping preferably while listening to 50 cent’s In da Club.
    Davida @ The Healthy Maven recently posted..Chocolate Matcha Energy Balls + An Energy Ball Round-Up!My Profile

  19. You finally shared the ceviche recipe! Excellent. If I had to describe myself as alcohol I always go back to a line from the movie French Kiss with Meg Ryan, I am “a bold wine with a hint of sophistication and lacking in pretention”. Love that line because its me!!!
    Maria @ The Good Life recently posted..wedding inspiration: a girl & her milkglassMy Profile

    • AH HA! That’s a GREAT LINE! I need to see this MOVIE!!! Want to come over and watch it with me as we scarf down ceviche?!?!

  20. I don’t drink (well, maybe 3 times a year), but your ceviche sounds wonderful! I love ceviche but it’s one of those dishes I just never make at home for some reason… I’ll have to change that!
    Andrea@WellnessNotes recently posted..Conscious Cleanse Friendly BeveragesMy Profile

    • I do not drink either – so I really was just wolfing down the ceviche! ;) And it’s funny, but I rarely make ceviche either -however it’s SO EASY TO MAKE so I don’t see why we don’t!!!

  21. Bethenny Frankel! I love her and Skinnygirl cocktails.Ok, I’ve only tried the wine and margaritas, but I’m dying to try some others!
    Stacie @ SimplySouthernStacie recently posted..Babies and BurgersMy Profile

  22. I’ve always been scared by ceviche (balderdash, I know) but yours looks great! And now, after reading this, I need a margarita. It’s my go-to and describes me well: fruity, strong, and layered. Plus it makes me dance and not give a crap who’s watching or what I’m doing! haha
    Lauren @ ihadabiglunch recently posted..a weekend of firstsMy Profile

    • I love that you can admit you’re a bit FRUITY ;) I also love the layered reference!!!!

      The funny thing is, I don’t drink – and I never give a crap who’s watching me make a fool of myself! AH ha ah! That liquid courage does help though!

    Trust you to provide us with a salmon cerviche! Did you know, our salmon is so sucky here, you would probably die if you ate raw salmon from the deli.

  36. One of these day’s I’ll have to try a raw fish creation. I would be moonshine, don’t underestimate it’s power :) I’ve never had skinny girl cocktails but have met a few skinny girls. I think if I was ever to party celebrity style I’d say Kid Rock would know how to get it done. If I need a smile I’ll just watch Coolio’s Tricked out Tilapia video or Summertime Salads is another favorite. No drunk stories, I never have really drank in my life.

  37. I actually really like the Skinny Girl Cosmos!! I don’t drink very often, but you know sometime a glass of wine becomes 2..or 3 hahaha And I must confess I plan on have some bevies on my upcoming Vaca!

  41. Oh boy! I have heard of Skinny Girl Cocktails but haven’t tired them. I just assume anything with the name ‘skinny’ in the title isn’t marketing itself to me. Maybe Strong Girl Cocktails! ;-)

    If I were a drink I’d probably be a Whiskey Sour. Sometimes I unwind by watching something dumb and funny on Netflix. Sometimes wine. Sometimes I just don’t unwind and try to go to bed anyway! Ha. I’d totally like to have a few drinks with Ed Norton.

  67. Wine is my bestie. Always there for me when I need a bottle to lean on. I need this salmon ceviche in my life.

  68. I’ve never tried the apple and blue cheese combo! I’m not the most adventurous when it comes to mixing things up haha. I rarely ever drink anymore, because my favourite drinks are just waay too unhealthy! Jack Daniels, Irish Cream, Amaretto….you get the idea ;) I try sticking to vodka and soda water these days, but it’s just so boring! Skinny Girl Cocktails sounds right up my street :p

    • I am not all that adventurous either, however, clearly the FOOD PERVERT IS! :)
