The Late Late Show With James Corden
Nothing like making your first martini under the guidance of cocktail guru Stanley Tucci.
During Thursday night’s at-home episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden, the host hopped on a video call with the acclaimed actor, live from his home in London, to learn how to mix up the finest martini cocktail. After a video of Tucci making a negroni went viral earlier in the week, Corden knew he was the man to go to for some guidance when boxed wine just wasn’t cutting it anymore.
While Tucci’s wife, Felicity Blunt (sister of actress Emily Blunt), filmed him, the actor talked Corden through the steps of making the stirred — not shaken — martini. “We’re doing the opposite of James Bond,” said a very-well dressed Tucci. Apparently early-evening cocktails are the norm in the Tucci/Blunt household, with the actor mixing drinks nightly at 5 p.m. without fail. He also dons his best attire for the mixology moment. “I do it every night,” he told Corden. “I always feel like one should look good, particularly after 5 o’clock.”
