It’s summer. School is out. We made it through the most difficult, trying year of parenthood. What better way to celebrate than with the perfect cocktail? If you’re looking for something new and refreshing to try, Ryan Reynolds and Aviation Gin have you covered.
In a hilarious new ad for his gin company, Ryan Reynolds shares a brand-new drink recipe that’s perfect for summer: it has gin (duh), cranberry juice, freshly-squeezed lemon, ice, and a citrus garnish. If a drink had a sound, this one would surely go, “ahhhh.”
Now that all sounds fine and dandy, but what really cinches this cocktail as the perfect drink is the name: The Vasectomy.
Reynolds shares the carefully thought-out ingredients and explains why this drink is perfect for parents everywhere—just in time for Father’s Day!
Ryan Reynolds’ Vasectomy
“First, fill a tall glass with ice, the way children fill our lives with so much joy” he says with his trademark dry wit on full display as ice clumsily tumbles over the bar. Next is cranberry juice — “sweet, just like their little smiles.”
*nods* Yes, yes, keep going. We’re with you so far.
He then pours (well, explodes) the tonic that’s “so bubbly,” which is how he feels “every day waking up after a long, full night of sleep.”
The lemon juice addition is giving us big Ina Garten vibes: while fresh is preferred, store-bought is also fine—because parenthood. “Fresh if you have a few minutes to squeeze one or store-bought if the little ones have you running around a bit today, the little scamps.”
You have to watch it until the end, because it’s the best part. The camera fades and Reynolds delivers the line we can all relate to: “When people see this they’re gonna be like, ‘has he ever been outside?'”
Cheers to that, Ryan Reynolds, and cheers to the “Vasectomy.”
