Which Skinnygirl Cocktail is your favorite RHoNY?

Ever wonder which Skinnygirl Cocktail best represents your favorite cast member of the Real Housewives of New York City? Here's what I think:

• Bethenny has been on fire since returning to RHoNY this year, yet she's the classic B we all know and love - the Skinnygirl Spicy Lime Margarita fits her perfectly!

• "Where's my wine?" ... Of course Ramona is Skinnygirl Sangria! One of the original Skinnygirl Ready-To-Serve Cocktail offerings, Skinnygirl Sangria has a hint of fruit sweetness with the zip of white wine, just like the Ramonacoaster herself. 

• Another of the original Skinnygirl offerings is the Skinnygirl White Cranberry Cosmo, which represents Countess Luann well because they're both classic, timeless, and won't get too dirty. 

• Sonja is definitely the Skinnygirl Sparkling Margarita for her effervescent spirit, classic bite, and bubbly personality. 

• Just as cool as the woman it represents, Skinnygirl Piña Colada is fun, flirty, and doesn't like to work too hard, just like Carole's great tagline this season. 

• Good mojitos are hard to come by, and so are good friends like Heather, who always sticks up for her Radzi and shows the other girls love too. Heather is the Skinnygirl Mojito, cuz them bitches are street! Holla!

• Pretty is smarter than you think, so you know you can't go wrong with ANY of the Skinnygirl Cocktail offerings, but Kristen gets the Skinnygirl Sweet'arita because she is caring, kind, and strong. 

• We've seen both the soft and the tough side of Dorinda already this season, and just like the new Housewife herself, the Skinnygirl Sweet 'n Tart Grapefruit Margarita makes a GREAT addition to the group. 

Celebrate the 100th episode of RHoNY tonight with any of these great Skinnygirl options!
