Watch: Stanley Tucci shows off his cocktail skills
All I want from life is Stanley Tucci to mix me up a little drink...
Actor Stanley Tucci is giving us exactly the kind of content we need to survive lockdown.
He’s showing the world how to make a Negroni cocktail.
The Captain America and Devil Wears Prada star shared the video of his cocktail skills to his Instagram page, complete with a little smooth jazz and Tucci’s dulcet tones.
In the three-minute long video, Tucci adds ice and gin to a cocktail shaker, followed by sweet vermouth and Campari (equal parts of each).
He then shakes and strains into a coupe glass, before finishing off with a slice of orange.
Like all pros, he tries the drink before handing it over to his wife, Felicity Blunt.
As it’s Stanley Tucci, I can forgive the fact that he shakes his Negroni instead of stirring it, and that he mentions you can use vodka instead of gin… Plus points for using an orange slice, and not just the peel.
Here’s hoping this is the first of many Stanley Tucci cocktail videos…
Social media reaction
Needless to say, Stanley Tucci's Negroni masterclass has gone down very well on social media...
