Bethenny Frankel knows all about good tastes.

The reality star turned talk show host has become somewhat of a lifestyle guru with her ever expanding line of low-calorie Skinnygirl Cocktails. So when the 43-year-old recently served up some of the new wine varietals the brand is offering at an event to benefit Dress for Success in New York City, we had to ask for her suggestion about what to imbibe over the holiday season.

"Sparkling cocktails are hotter than ever right now, so I think the new, limited time Skinnygirl Prosecco would be perfect for Thanksgivingukkah or really any celebration for that matter," Frankel noted, referencing the fact that Thanksgiving falls on the first day of Hanukkah this year. "It comes in a gorgeous bottle, so it's perfect to give as a hostess gift or to pop open at your own party."

Just last week, Skinnygirl Cocktails sponsored their Shop for Success event where we served our newest wines and hosted a celebrity auction to benefit Dress for Success with great items from Maria Menounos, Vivica Fox, Tia Mowry-Hardrict, and yours truly.
