Cocktail Concierge: How to Make A Christmas Cosmopolitan With Stanley Tucci

There might not have been many good things to come out of 2020, but Stanley Tucci’s cocktail tutorials have been one of the brighter spots in an otherwise tumultuous year.

The Devil Wears Prada actor is shaking up the online world with his how-to make cocktails from home videos on Instagram.

The smooth-talking American began showing off his sauve mixing skills to his 1.1 million followers when he decided to whip up the classic Italian Negroni cocktail for his wife Felicity. The Stanley Tucci Negroni recipe quickly gained an audience with the original video reaching over 1.2 million views.

Tucci revisits his first-ever recipe to promote his new recipe book Taste that premiered last month. The book is an intimate reflection of Tucci’s intersection of food and life – a witty memoir filled with anecdotes and recipes that’s a “heartwarming read for anyone who knows the power of a home-cooked meal.”

The new video shows the actor recreating the Stanley Tucci Negroni jokingly saying “he’s cleaned up his act” while using a scoop to handle the ice instead of his hands. The second softly-spoken video recipe has fans just as in awe as the first with over 40,000 likes.
