To celebrate Father’s Day (in the US), actor Ryan Reynolds has created an Aviation Gin drink that he describes as “the mother of all cocktails’.
Called the Vasectomy, Reynolds points out the drink is ‘as refreshing as fatherhood’ with Cranberry Juice, Tonic Water and Gin.
Reynolds, a father of three, uses the cocktail making instructions to sarcastically reflected on the joys of fatherhood.
“First, fill a tall glass with ice, the way children fill our lives with so much joy. Next, pour one ounce of cranberry juice.
“Sweet, just like their little smiles. ‘Then pour three ounces of tonic,” he continued. “So bubbly, just like I feel every day I wake up after a long full night of sleep.
“Now, 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 today the little scamps.
“Finally, we’re going to one and a half ounces of Aviation American Gin. The world’s highest-rated gin for the world’s highest-rated job – dad.’
Despite the recipe calling for just one and a half ounces of the alcohol, he continued pouring well beyond those limits. In a second take, he is then equipped with a jigger to measure the pour.
