How To Make The Cocktail Bill Murray Named While Bartending

Bill Murray recently gave the public another chance to fawn over him while guest bartending at his son’s bar in Brooklyn.

According to The New York Times, the actor arrived an hour late for his shift at 21 Greenpoint on Friday, but quickly made up for his tardiness by, well, by being Bill Murray. The crowd, most of whom were too busy holding iPhones to hold a drink, snapped photos as Murray took cocktail orders —  basic “on the rocks” type of drinks, which he could quickly dole out.

He also squeezed in some pro bono branding, naming a cocktail developed by bar director Sean Patrick McClure. Murray took one sip of the vodka drink and proclaimed “The Depth-Finder.”

Murray spent about two hours behind the bar, ending the night with a toast to  his son and his business partners.

Here’s the drink he named, which is heavy on Slovenia Vodka — something his son says his father “just pours into people’s glasses when they look thirsty.”

The Depth-Finder

  • 1 1/2 ounces Slovenia Vodka
  • 3/4 ounce Amaro liqueur
  • 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 2 ounce soda water
  • 1 pinch dried rosebuds

Pour the vodka, Amaro and lemon juice into a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously, and strain into a highball glass. Top with ice, soda water and garnish with dried rosebuds. Serve with a straw.
