This post may just blow your mind, when a foodie goes to a brazier event and finds inspiration, there is something to write about. Wacoal hosted a fun filled “Cocktails and a Fitting” event, filled with everything you’d imagine… their new collection, which included numerous sexy ensembles, and well, cocktails!
Of course there was food, but who wants to chow down when a tasty beverage is within arms reach? This tributary drink is an inspiration of this fun event:
Skinny = my inner lingerie persona
Bras = the room was overflowing with them
Cosmopolitan = were served in abundance
Add up the sum of the three core ingredients and you have a Skinny Brazmopolitan that is under 300 calories.
1 ¾ oz Cointreau (140 calories)
2 oz Vodka- 80 proof (128 calories)
1 oz Cranberry Juice (15 calories)
1/2 oz Fresh Lime Juice (2 calories)
1 Lime Wedge (1/8 lime) (3 calories)
Add all ingredients into cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well for 10-15 seconds and strain into large cocktail glass. Garnish with lime slice.
The recipe is simple, but I learned that picking the correct bra for your body is more complex than I had imagined. One of the factoids that I learned from ‘The Bra Lady’, Liz Smith, is that if you gain 5 – 7 lbs, your bra size will change. Hence the skinny drink recipe. More than anything, having lost my Aunt to breast cancer, I was drawn into the fact that Wacoal, via Liz’s work, has raised 2.5MM dollars for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation through the Fit for the Cure® program.
Oh, and if you are looking for some fun and flirty styles don’t miss out on their b.tempt’d line – I’ve got my eye on a few already – as does fellow fashion blogger at Art of Moda.
