Ryan Reynolds has hilariously demonstrated how to make his cocktail the Vasectomy, with less than two weeks to go until Father’s Day.
The father of three, 44, shared the recipe for the stiff drink, named after the male sterilization procedure, in an ad for his gin, Aviation American Gin.
Ryan’s tone alternated from instructive to attempting to hold it together as he sarcastically reflected on the joys of fatherhood from behind the bar.

‘It’s Father’s Day, but if you don’t mind we’re going to celebrate with the mother of all cocktails, the Vasectomy,’ Ryan said.
‘First, fill a tall glass with ice the way children fill our lives with so much joy. Next, pour one ounce of cranberry juice. Sweet, just like their little smiles.
‘Then pour three ounces of tonic, so bubbly,’ he said, twisting open the bottle before it sprayed everywhere.
The actor laughed before completing another take.

‘Then, pour three ounces of tonic. So bubbly, just like I feel everyday I wake up after a long full night of sleep.
‘Now, add a dash of lemon juice. Fresh if you have a few minutes to squeeze one or store bought if the little ones have you running around today the little scamps.’
The final part of the recipe called for one and a half ounces of Ryan’s gin, Aviation American Gin.

‘Now that is as refreshing as fatherhood’: Ryans savored the fruity cocktail
‘Finally, we’re going to one and a half ounces of Aviation American Gin. The world’s highest rated gin for the world’s highest rated job – dad.’
Despite the recipe calling for just one and a half ounces of the alcohol, he continued pouring well beyond those limits.
This meant the actor needed to do a second take, but this time he was equipped with a steel jigger to properly measure the pour.

‘A little of sunshine’: Reynolds topped off his stiff drink with a swirl of garnish
‘Stir, and then we’re going to garnish with a little slice of sunshine.’
Taking a sip of the drink, he said: ‘Now that is as refreshing as fatherhood. A little something I call a vasectomy for no reason at all.’
The ad hilariously closed with the actor joking, ‘When people see this they’re going to be like, “Has he been outside?”‘
Outside of his job as an actor and gin entrepreneur, Ryan is a doting dad of three daughters with his wife Blake Lively.

The couple share daughters James, six, Inez, four, and the newest addition to their family, one-year-old Betty.
Despite the joking tone of his gin ad, the actor has previously gushed about just how much he adores his children.
‘I love being a girl dad,’ he told Access last year. ‘I have three daughters, which I never in a million years would have imagined. I come from all boys. I have three older brothers. I’m the youngest of four boys so for me to have three daughters has just been such a ride and I love every second of it.’
‘No joke, they are the most capable people I know,’ he added. ‘So I think if anything got crazy or scary in my life, they are the first people I would lean on because they have wisdom and strength and they’re calm under fire. They have courage under fire.’
