Disclosure: Thanks to Skinnygirl Cocktails for supplying product in exchange for this post.
This past Sunday, I invited a few of my neighborhood friends over for an at-home Golden Globes viewing party with Skinnygirl Cocktails. It didn’t take much convincing considering I wanted to have a comfy night in with my girlfriends. Yoga pants (required), no makeup, fancy cocktails and a night of oohing and ahing over dresses, hairstyles and diamonds.
A slew of cocktails, check! Champagne (or prosecco) martini’s, cucumber vodka lime cocktails, and wine. Who’s going to win a Golden Globes Award, check! Could we possibly cut it as part of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association?
During the Red Carpet we jumped on Twitter to chat with @Skinnygirl and #LetsDrinkToThat fans. The Red Carpet is my very favorite part of any awards ceremony, so this girl had a lot to say about what was hot and not.

My version of a Champagne Martini, won drink of the night!! Grab the recipe for my Prosecco or Sweet Cucumber Champagne Martini.
Would you like a little chardonnay with that Matthew McConaughey speech? Homeboy won Best Actor in a Motion Picture — Drama, for Dallas Buyers Club. His speech was absolutely awesome. In true McConaughey style he hopped on stage with his “alright, alright”. “Unexpected but graciously accepted” and his sweet speech, went on to thank his wife for “kicking his ass out the door”. And his ending line, “This movie was never about dyin’, it was always about livin’, with that I say, just keep”. I saw Dallas Buyers Club and it was a phenomenal movie, this award was well deserved. Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto are amazing, you won’t be disappointed!
One of my go to cocktails is usually a vodka and lemon/lime soda. On that note, we used Skinnygirl Cucumber vodka, a lemon/lime soda and a cucumber garnish. Delish, I tell ya!
I am not new to the Skinnygirl Cocktail line. I have had the Pinot Grigio quite a few times and Skinnygirl Margaritas more times than I probably should count. Skinnygirl Cocktails and award shows go together like bacon and eggs.
