Through actor John Krasinki’s YouTube show, “Some Good News,” Tucci presents cocktail recipes to make at home with his amazing bartending skills. This time, Stanley decided to recreate the recipe of an 90 year-old lady who made a vodka-based Quarantini cocktail.

The original video is that of a 90-year-old woman, which her grandson posted on the social networks Twitter and TikTok. In the video we see the lady preparing a delicious quarantine cocktail. The recipe: ice, vanilla vodka, orange vodka, Chambord raspberry liqueur, and orange juice.

After the success of the video, Tucci decided to recreate the recipe during episode 5 of “Some Good News”. While preparing the cocktail he mentions that he fears the cocktail will be strong by saying “I won’t be able to walk after this”. But when he finishes and tastes it, he announces with surprise and satisfaction “This is delicious!”

The Quarantini cocktails, began to be created through the networks of bartender and mixologist Derekk Brown. He shows us a cocktail recipe called “Quarantini”.
