Learn to prepare Meryl Streep’s Quarantini Martini cocktail

Actress Meryl Streep has other skills besides acting, and she proved it by preparing a Quarantini Martini cocktail! We’ll show you how to do it.

Have you seen Meryl Streep’s “Quarantini”? The actress was featured in a tribute to Sondheim’s 90th birthday, in honor of the Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim, where we see her preparing a martini cocktail and toasting with Christine Baranski with a red wine and Audra McDonald with a bourbon. You can see the full celebration that includes other celebrities here.

Quarantini Martini by Meryl Streep


50 millilitres gin

10 millilitres dry vermouth

lemon twist



Half fill shaker with ice and add gin and dry vermouth. Shake for about 30 seconds — or the duration of singing: ‘Here’s to the girls that stay smart / Aren’t they a gas?/ Rushing to their classes / In optical art / Wishing it would pass’.

Pour into a martini glass theatrically and garnish with lemon twist while belting out ‘I’ll drink to that’.


Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
