Blake Lively channeled her inner Baywatch babe in a sassy red swimsuit as she posed poolside for a sexy campaign for her sparkly mixer company Betty Buzz.
While promoting her line of cocktail mixers, the actress, 35, shared a stunning snap of herself smoldering at the camera as she stripped off her tee and showed off her incredibly tight midriff just six months after welcoming her fourth child.
In the image, the Los Angeles native’s wavy blonde locks were styled in pigtails under a reflective visor.
Like her bikini, her nails were painted a dark red, the same shade as her lipstick.
She linked the image on her Instagram story to the 2003 song, Stacy’s Mom, by Fountains of Wayne.
In addition, the A Simple Favor star posed for a moment as she sunbathed in her backyard sipping a sparkling lemon-lime soda.
Red hot! Blake Lively channeled her inner Baywatch babe in a sassy red swimsuit as she posed poolside for a sexy campaign for her sparkly mixer company Betty Buzz
“This is not a recording of a wild mating ritual. (although it could be),’ she joked. “I legitimately drink Betty Buzz Meyer Lemon, all day. Every day.’
She continued, “I am the number one customer. I respect the privacy of our customers, so I will not reveal that @vancityreynolds (her husband Ryan Reynolds) is our second customer.”
Lively launched its sparkling mixers Betty Buzz in 2021.
That year, she revealed that she doesn’t drink.
“I know that’s odd coming from the wife of a notorious gin slinger,” she said People as she nodded to her husband Ryan Reynolds’ Aviation American Gin company.
She went on to explain, “In the past few years of mixing, but not drinking cocktails, it became clear that mixers are the unsung heroes of the booze world and deserve just as much love as alcohol.
“We’ve spent the last three years making Betty Buzz and are so excited that people are finally tasting it,” she concluded in her statement.
She said the name of the line is an homage to the Lively name.
“My dad’s name was Ernest Brown Jr., but he was known as Ernie Lively,” she told the outlet. “He gave up his last name when he married my mother and any success here, or me, I’ve had on a name that isn’t his.”
Lively continued, “So when I worked hard to build this company, I wanted every success to be in a name that was meaningful to him. Betty was his mother and his sister’s name.
“Nor would Ernie be the best name for a mixer.”
In June, the mother-of-four raised many eyebrows after announcing that her brand would release alcoholic beverages despite being a non-drinker.
The backlash came after she shared a promo photo of herself showing off the new drink selection, with the caption, “Drinking isn’t my thing.” But for heaven’s sake, taste it.’
Fans were quick to respond to the comments to call out the Gossip Girl star, asking, “if drinking isn’t your thing… then how do you know if (sic) it tastes good or good?”
Some indicated that they found Lively’s entry into the booze room “annoying” and that her caption seemed like it “shamed” drinkers.
Another teased, “I don’t drink but you should (HAND ON FACE EMOJI)”
“You don’t hang out by the pool like that, do you?” she mused under a photo of herself wrapped in a yellow and white towel on her Instagram story
Many hoped that she would introduce “non-alcoholic cocktails”, so it turned out to be a disappointment.
One fan accused it of being a “cash grab,” while others compared her to Jennifer Lopez, who received similar flak for launching her alcohol brand Delola this year.
In April, the On The Floor singer claimed she doesn’t “drink, smoke or drink caffeine.”
In 2018, Lively claimed to be “a great mixologist” despite not drinking.
She also told People that she “doesn’t like the effects of alcohol” and that she feels better sober.
“I noticed sometimes not drinking, what was interesting was it was a little bit alienating, because you don’t feel — and maybe it’s just in your own head — but you just don’t really feel a part of it,” she expressed .
