Skinnier cocktails

Bars around the metro are starting to offer skinnier versions of sugary favorites, but some cocktails have always been skinny.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
You know “skinny” is a popular trend when Cheesecake Factory adds menu items under that category. The chain best known for massive portions and the signature dessert in its name added low(er) calorie cocktails at the beginning of 2011, most notably a skinny Mojito and a margarita, classic drinks with a week’s supply of sugar in the recipe.

Cruise into a dystopian future.


Sci-Fi

Yo ho ho and a flagon of rum

English folk/party band Skinny Lister joins Dropkick Murphys for a rowdy St. Patrick’s Day tour of the Midwest.


Music

Devon Green
A few years ago, Skinny Lister was enjoying mild success in its home country before being discovered in a hotel parking lot at SXSW. Already the darlings of the festival set in Europe, the band was discovered by the Dropkick Murphys’ manager, who witnessed the rowdy 5-piece in what lead singer Lorna Thomas described as “the world’s only mandolin solo in a glass lift.” The band was notorious for setting up anywhere and everywhere and playing to anyone who would listen. This approach, especially at SXSW, proved to be an effective one.
