Stanley Tucci Soothes the Internet With His Negroni Cocktail Tutorial Video


Stanley Tucci is here to upgrade your quarantine cocktail hour.

While many of us are enjoying our booze decked out in sweatpants on the couch, the "Devil Wears Prada" star reminded the world you don’t have to sacrifice sophistication while throwing back a few drinks in self-isolation.

Tucci showed off his chic bartender skills by making the perfect Negroni, while his wife, Felicity Blunt, recorded the three-minute clip on Instagram.

"We're going to make a Negroni up,” the 59-year-old said while decked out in a fitted black polo shirt and belted slacks. “Mostly people have Negronis on the rocks and I think actually they're quite nice up."

After putting ice in a shaker, Tucci began getting all the alcoholic ingredients into place.

"Then what you want is a double shot of gin," he said in his soothing voice. "If you don't like gin, you can use vodka."

Adding a shot of sweet vermouth and a shot of Campari, the actor shakes it all together as his sculpted arms vie for the audience’s attention.

Tucci then pours the libation into a glass and garnishes it with an orange. After taking a sip, the “Hunger Games” star smiled and said, “That’s good!”

The intoxicating clip soon went viral with fans praising Tucci’s tutorial.

“The Negroni shall henceforth be known as the QuaranTucci,” wrote one follower.

“This man is like a fine wine,” added another.

“This is why you are a national treasure,” commented "Beauty and the Beast" co-star Josh Gad.

Tucci’s boozy recipe even got the attention of "Captain America" star Chris Evans, who retweeted the clip.

"I. Love. Stanley. Tucci. On some(most) days after we finished filming on the first Captain America movie, Stanley would make us martinis in his trailer," Evans wrote. "He’s an absolute gem. However cool, fun, witty, and charming you think he is, double it and you’re halfway there."

Tucci is the latest celebrity to go viral for their cocktail instruction.

Earlier this month, Food Network star Ina Garten set the internet ablaze with her recipe for a ginormous cosmopolitan.

Since it’s 5 o’clock somewhere, go ahead and make yourself a drink and then proceed back to the comfort of your sofa. Cheers!
