SkinnyGirl California Red – Review

I may be dating myself but every time I pop the cork on a bottle of red the song “Red, Red Wine” by UB40 starts playing in my head.  (I’m aware Bob Marley has a version too but I was a fan of UB40 so that’s who I associate the song with.)  I, particularly, love the lines:
Red red wine you make me feel so fine
You keep me rocking all of the time
Red red wine you make me feel so grand
I feel a million dollars when your just in my hand

Red red wine you make me feel so fine
Monkey pack him rizla pon the sweet dep line

I don’t even know what that last line means but it cracks me up when people try to sing along and they get to that line….there’s a lot of mumbling going on there!

So, you get the point….I LOVE red wine.  I usually have about a glass a night, especially since science and the medical community recommend it for good health.  I must be very healthy because I drink a lot of wine and have the corks to prove it.

Unfortunately, drinking wine equals additional calorie intake.  I like wine as much as I like dessert so anytime I have an opportunity to save some calories for dessert I will take it! The typical glass of red wine has approximately 25 calories per ounce.  Most people pour, on average, five ounces per glass and that’s if you’re not using one of the very, chic oversize glasses.  If you use an oversized wine glass your pour will, most likely, double!  So your glass of red wine probably tops out at 125 calories.

That’s where the SkinnyGirl brand comes in to save the day. The SkinnyGirl California Red clocks in at 100 calories per 5 ounce serving!  That’s splendid!  And, I’m not a sommelier but  it tastes pretty good too!  It’s priced pretty high, in my opinion….at $14.99 a bottle I know of several other wines I would rather have at that price point.  BUT if I’m counting calories and plan to have more than one glass of wine this is a must have!

Summer is coming so anywhere I can shave off a few calories the better!!!  If you plan to prance around in a swimsuit this summer…..SkinnyGirl can help!
