“You deserve a drink.”
Social media star Mamrie Hart will tell you as much, and she’s serving more than 1.1 million cocktail-swilling fans to date. In her latest video, she turns the YouTube platform into a shelf. Top shelf, that is, in saluting 36-major–winning “bad ass” Serena Williams by creating a custom drink in her honor.
Introducing the Tennis’y Williams libation. You can see Hart reveal its contents herself in the clip, which notably comes with some choice words (be forewarned), groan-inducing puns, a few many Drake references, and chihuahua cameos:
A concoction made up up Hennessy cognac, amaretto, almond milk, maraschino cherries and almond shavings sounds kind of suspect, but tennis fans will take it. It’s the off-season, and a star in this sport landing any pop-culture mention, however mainstream or niche, will do.
The video features everything from an announcement early on that Serena is “probably the best female athlete of all time, or our time” to the amusingly awful pun that she must favor protein because she went pro as a teen. Toss in a Grand Slam quip that name-drops Denny’s and you’ve got a recipe for disast-her. Somewhere Serena sighs, or doubles over with laughter. That is Hart’s humor in an almond shell.
