Taylor Swift Day-Drinks with Ina Garten, Tries First Whiskey Sour Ever
So it was only a matter of time before the singer and the Barefoot Contessa host got together to do some cooking, eating and (day) drinking.
In a new feature for Food Network Magazine, which according to the publication took “a few calls to get them together,” Swift finally gets to hang out with Garten at the beloved chef’s home in the Hamptons.
This is also where Swift, 24, drinks her first whiskey sour, with mom Andrea and brother Austin nearby.
Food Network Magazine take it from here:
Ina and Taylor have just put their mustard-roasted fish in the oven and are spreading whipped cream on a Pavlova while bonding over their mutual frustration with people who don’t like to eat. “I’ll cook for these boys, and they’ll be like, ‘I’m on a diet,'” Taylor says. “I’m like, ‘I can’t hang out with you.'” Ina’s right there with her. One time, she says, a big television star came to her house for a charity event while on a cleanse and couldn’t eat anything. Ina offered the woman a sip of a whiskey sour, and she downed the whole drink and asked for another. “Oh, I’ve never had a whiskey sour,” Taylor says. “I have some in my refrigerator!” Ina replies. And just like that, it’s a party. “Hey, Andrea,” Taylor calls to her mom. “Come over here. We’re day-drinking!” Andrea and Taylor’s brother, Austin, come behind the counter, and soon the whole family is tasting Ina’s favorite cocktail and diving into the Pavlova with big spoons. No one waits for plates. “I don’t always eat it this way,” Ina says, laughing.
The interview was conducted earlier this spring, according to Swift’s adorable selfie with Garten:
“A day of cooking in the Hamptons with my HERO. How bad can that be?” Swift wrote in the caption at the time.
Swift recently concluded her RED Tour in Singapore on June 12.
