Actor Stanley Tucci has revealed how to make the perfect Negroni in this 'enchanting' video.
Stanley Tucci is spending his time in lockdown wisely, as he’s shown the world how to make the perfect negroni.
In a video shared on his Instagram, the Devil Wears Prada and Captain America actor agrees to create his wife - Felicity Blunt - a cocktail.
And while we’re all keen to try out Stanley’s impressive negroni recipe this weekend, the smooth jazz music and his soothing voice have gained a lot of attention.
The three-minute clips sees him calmly walking viewers through the steps, which requires some ice, a double shot of gin (or vodka), a shot of sweet vermouth, and a shot of Campari.
He gets to work by adding ice and the gin to a cocktail shaker, followed by a high quality vermouth and the Campari.
All the ingredients are shaken and poured into a coupe glass and after finishing it off with a quick squeeze of an orange, Stanley gives it a quick sip before offering it to his wife to try.
The 59-year-old simply captioned the video with the words: “Drink up!”
Stanley’s mixology lesson received a lot of social media comments, with many calling it ‘soothing’ and ‘enchanting’.
“I could watch him talk about paint dry 😍,” said one follower, while a second wrote: “I never realised how sexy Stanley Tucci is until right now!!”

I. Love. Stanley. Tucci.— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) April 21, 2020
On some(most) days after we finished filming on the first Captain America movie, Stanley would make us martinis in his trailer.
He’s an absolute gem. However cool, fun, witty, and charming you think he is, double it and you’re halfway there. https://t.co/mEJzuV8oAH
And a third added: "May this video of Stanley Tucci doing a cocktail masterclass be a blessing upon your twitter feed."
Fellow actor Chris Evans, even tweeted: “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.
"He's an absolute gem. However cool, fun, witty, and charming you think he is, double it and you're halfway there."
Oscar-nominated actor Stanley is also a cookbook author, so he knows a fair bit about recipes.
He is married to literary agent Felicity Blunt, 39, the elder sister of actress Emily Blunt – who starred alongside Stanley in The Devil Wears Prada.
Felicity and Stanley tied the knot in 2012 and live in Barnes in south-west London.
They have two children together – four-year-old son Matteo Oliver and one-year-old daughter Emilia Giovanna.
Stanley is also a father to three children from his first marriage to Kathryn Spath-Tucci, who died in 2009.
