Have you seen Meryl Streep’s “Quarantini”?

You can see the full celebration that includes other celebrities here.
Quarantini Martini by Meryl Streep
50 millilitres gin
10 millilitres dry vermouth
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.
