The New Hampshire Business Resource Center is raising its glass and toasting Drink Skinny Margarita Mix for being named the “Innovation Rocks!” award winner for the month of July.
Drink Skinny was cited for its use of all natural ingredients including a plant extract known as stevia, a natural sweetener that contains zero calories, zero carbohydrates and is 200-400 times sweeter than refined sugar. Drink Skinny also uses a small amount of agave nectar in its original flavor of Drink Skinny Margarita Mix – this sugary fluid secreted by plants is known to be slow releasing in the bloodstream and, as a result, has a relatively low glycemic impact.
Created by Steven and Christy Cegelski, Drink Skinny Margarita Mix is available in a number of local stores including the New Hampshire State Liquor and Wine Outlets, the Concord Cooperative Market, the New Hampshire Country Store in Chocorua and Peppercorn Natural Foods in Plymouth. It is also available via online orders at www.drink-skinny.com.
“During these hot summer vacation months, it’s nice to know that a New Hampshire-based company has created a product that is not only tasty but also healthy,” New Hampshire Division of Economic Development Interim Director Roy Duddy said. “By utilizing all natural ingredients that are free of high fructose corn syrup, Drink Skinny has fashioned a mouth watering and calorie conscious success story.”
