Ryan Reynolds has shared a recipe for the “mother of all cocktails” – The Vasectomy – which he says is perfect for parents everywhere, just in time for Father’s Day.
While Reynolds sold Aviation Gin to Diageo for around $845 million last year, he’s still involved in marketing the product. And he’s a genius at it.
In the cocktail tutorial, the actor – who shares three daughters with wife Blake Lively: James, 6, Inez, 4, and Betty, 1½ – puts a sarcastic spin on the joys of fatherhood.
“First, fill a tall glass with ice, the way children fill our lives with so much joy,” he quips while mixing the ingredients together. “Next, pour one ounce of cranberry juice—sweet—just like their little smiles. Then, pour three ounces of tonic, so bubbly, just like I feel every day I wake up after a long full night’s sleep.
“Add a dash of lemon juice, fresh if you have a few minutes to squeeze one or store bought if the little ones have you running around a bit today…the little scamps,” he continued. “Finally, we’re gonna add one and a half ounces of Aviation American Gin, the world’s highest-rated gin for the world’s highest-rated job. Dad.”
He takes a swig of the cocktail and says: “Now that is as refreshing as fatherhood. Well, something I call The Vasectomy for no reason at all. Happy Father’s Day, everyone.”
Ryan gives Dan Murphy’s a shout out
Dan Murphy’s has scored a starring role in Ryan Reynolds latest tweet. The star gave a helping hand to an Aussie who was trying to track down his Aviation Gin.
After Dr Paul J Maginn tweeted that he had enjoyed a sample of the award-winning gin, but wasn’t sure where to find a full-sized bottle, the actor helpfully replied that it was available in Dan Murphy’s in Perth.
Dr Maginn wrote: “So got this sampler of @VancityReynolds@AviationGin And it’s not too shabby let me tell ya! Gotta see if I can find a BIG bottle at a bottle-o here in Perth. My local off-licence doesn’t sell it unfortunately!”
And this is what happened next …
