Since Bethenny Frankel's taken to the talk show stage, the newly single mom hasn't slowed down a millisecond: she's been hard at work on both the set of Bethenny: No Limits and at Skinnygirl Cocktails, and she's reaping in the rewards on both fronts despite the haters that try to keep her down.
In an interview with People, Bethenny reveals details about the latest drink she's concocted—the first non-alcoholic addition to her Skinnygirl line, Skinnygirl Sparklers. "I haven't been this excited about a business decision since I started my company," she tells People. "Cocktails are great, but they're for the night. These are for on the go." For the launch, she's debuting four flavors: Pink Grapefruit, Pineapple Coconut, Tangerine Mango and Strawberry Lemonade.
Bethenny says she got the idea to introduce a non-alcoholic drink after one fan's request. And the mom is excited that her daughter Bryn can drink them, too. "When I was testing the formula, she might have asked for a skip," she says. "She likes juice, but I encourage her to drink alot of water. I'd let her drink these. She likes to do what I do."
With the skyrocketing popularity of Skinnygirl and Bethenny, plenty of naysayers have come to the forefront, bashing the hostess and cocktail empire-building entrepreneur and her endeavors. According to Bethenny, the negativity does nothing but fuel her success streak. "People have been critical, hoping that we fail," she continues. "But we're finally hitting our stride. Haters are our motivators."
We gotta say, we're stoked to have a Skinnygirl mocktail to try pre-happy hour—and we're big fans of Bethenny's positive attitude. Are you keeping up with Bethenny: No Limits? Will you give Skinnygirl Sparklers a try? Let us know in the comments and check out the first-look of her new drink below.
