New Year, New You with RA Sushi’s Low-Calorie Skinny Cocktails

Refreshing Libations Slenderized for a Guilt Free Indulgence

PLANO, Texas (Jan. 5, 2012) – Overindulgence is the name of the game during the holiday season! Happy hours, office goodies, and family feasts can wreak havoc on anyone’s waistline. For those with a New Year’s resolution to regain their willpower, RA Sushi has created three new low-calorie skinny cocktails for a guilt free treat.

Slenderized to feature less than 200 calories each, the Lychee-teenie, Skinny Ninja and Thin Ginger are so full of flavor, the extra calories won’t even be missed. A light, fruity martini alternative, the Lychee-teenie is subtly sweet with the flavor of Asian lychee fruit, mixed with Voli Vodka and Monin Agave Nectar. A refreshing twist on a RA favorite, the Skinny Ninja includes Voli Lyte Vodka, the flavors of yuzu and pink grapefruit, plus Monin Agave Nectar and shiso, a basil-minty Japanese herb. The Thin Ginger features strawberry and ginger muddled with Voli Lemon Vodka, fresh citrus, and Monin Agave Nectar for a “berry” tasty resolution-minded libation.

Priced at $8 each, the skinny cocktails will be available from Jan. 1, 2012 to Feb. 29, 2012 at RA Plano in The Shops at Legacy. Visit any RA location to try a Lychee-teenie, Skinny Ninja, or Thin Ginger, or mix one up at home.
