Judy Greer Gives Fancy Cocktails 'Two Thumbs Down'

If you’re going to a bar with Judy Greer, here’s a word to the wise: stick to the basics.

She gives the trend of artisan cocktails “two thumbs down,” she told Seth Meyers on “Late Night” on Wednesday. “I hate it.”

Asked what specially she’s doesn’t like about artisan cocktails, the “Ant-Man” actress said, “They’re, like, $80 a drink. They muddle everything. They take about 30 minutes to make. They come in a thimble.”

But the list of things to hate doesn’t stop there. “Smoke. Sometimes I’ve had someone, like, blow a filtering smokey kind of [substance] on top of the finished [drink.],” she added. “It’s ridiculous.”

There are, though, two things she admits to liking about mixology. Of course, they have nothing to do with consuming the libation. When Meyers mentioned that the drinks are usually made by a retro-styled bartender sporting a handlebar mustache, she beamed. “That’s the only thing I love about mixology, and an apron.”
