“He must be trolling us”
Brooklyn Beckham may see himself as a mixologist — but his fans disagree.
While simple is often best, a gin and tonic doesn’t exactly make the list for complicated or fancy cocktails — unless, apparently, you’re Beckham.
The 23-year-old, who describes himself as a “nutter in the kitchen”, revealed his recipe, which consists of Monkey 47 gin, lime, cucumber, rosemary, mint, tonic water and ice, in a video for Bustle.
In the clip, Beckham – who claims he’s “very experimental” in the kitchen and loves “making new drinks” – shows fans how to make two of his “favorite cocktails”: a lychee martini and a gin and tonic.
After earnestly explaining how to make the latter – first adding gin, lime, cucumber, “quite a bit of mint” and ice – the son of David and Victoria Beckham then mixes it up with tonic and describes it as “like a forest drink.” .”
“There’s so many different greens and stuff in there,” explained the aspiring cocktail extraordinaire, adding that he was “very happy with it.”
While he may be content with that, his apparently carefully crafted recipe sparked confusion online, with many accusing Beckham of fooling them with his cocktail recipe.
“I still can’t tell if Brooklyn Beckham is fooling us all with his ‘Nutter’ recipes…? (In case you forgot how to make a gin and tonic),” one user joked.
“I’m obsessed, I mean absolutely obsessed, with Brooklyn Beckham calling himself ‘a nut in the kitchen’ and then making a gin and tonic with none other than cucumber AND lime ladies and gentlemen!” another wrote.
“I’ve never seen anyone fail at using nepotism like Brooklyn Beckham,” said another reviewer, while another added that he “loves Nepo energy.”
“I still can’t figure out if Brooklyn Beckham is trolling us or the people who run Brooklyn Beckham are trolling him,” another asked, while one person quipped, “Hey Brooklyn please I’m dying to know your recipe for ice cream, It looks fantastic.”
One naysayer suggested Beckham show his cooking skills as a follow-up, commenting: “Next week. beans on toast.”
