If there’s one thing we need right now it’s a little humor – and maybe a good cocktail – and thanks to one celebrity chef we got both in an adorable Instagram video.
Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten is renowned for her delicious food, but when it comes time to practicing social distancing at home she knows how to make a killer Cosmopolitan cocktail.
The celebrity chef gave fans a video tutorial on how to make the perfect Cosmo via Instagram, revealing the tasty drink naturally starts off with some “good vodka.”
Captioning her video “Cocktail Hour” Ina told fans it’s important to keep traditions alive during stressful times – and by tradition she means cocktail hour.
“You probably have all the ingredients right in your house,” Ina told fans as she started mixing the giant size cocktail in a mixing jar.
“I like to make a lot of Cosmos,” Ina shared. “You never know who’s going to stop by – wait a minute, nobody’s stopping by,” Ina joked.
After generously pouring in two cups of vodka, Ina told fans, “next is one cup of Cointreau, or triple sec, any kind of orange liqueur.”
“One cup of cranberry juice cocktail and a half a cup of freshly squeezed lime juice,” Ina instructed. “It’s gotta be freshly squeezed.”
Ina told fans it’s important to shake the cocktail in a cocktail shaker that’s half-filled with ice for a good 30 seconds before drinking.
“During a crisis, you know, cocktail hour can be almost any hour,” Ina wisely shared with fans, before adding, “Stay safe, have a very good time, and don’t forget the cocktails.”
