In these dark times of self-isolation, various celebrities have been sharing their own methods and hacks of staying entertained while stuck at home… But author and TV host, Ina Garten, may have just topped them all with her rather boozy concoction.

Keep scrolling for the full story, and to see just how to make Ina’s giant cosmo for yourself…

It’s been a pretty dreadful couple of weeks, to say the least, and many of us are going completely insane with boredom.

Numerous celebrities have been taking to social media to share what they’re doing to keep entertained in this medical pandemic. Keep scrolling to see some of the best ones…

The singer has decided to kill some time by launching her own homemade talk show on Instagram Live, “Bright Minded.”

He isn’t taking things quite as seriously as some of his cohorts though, which honestly is what we’re all here for.

Kumail Nanjiani and Emily Gordon started a new podcast to help you stay entertained while you quarantine and they’re donating all the proceeds to charity. That’s what we like to see.

He’s reading children’s books on Twitter, so now you finally have the excuse to leave your kids in front of the screen for ten minutes and claim that it’s “educational.”

And most of us were not comforted by her very rich bunch of celebrity friends in their very large houses telling us that we’re all in this together. Weird.

Anthony Hopkins has introduced the world to his cat Niblo, and every single one of us would now die for that cat. Niblo, it’s up to you to protect him.

But, like us, other celebrities are finding themselves going a little bit bonkers.

Apparently, if you’re Madonna and you can’t sing to big crowds you simply must sing to your hairbrush. Also, even Madonna is out of pasta, so that feels pretty relatable.

She says that mask is for her skin, but let’s be honest, it’s so that we can create a horror movie out of this whole experience.

We now all know that Cardi B. has absolutely no idea what you’re supposed to do with Jenga. Also, she has no sense of self-preservation.

No seriously…we’re less than a month into quarantine and the actual Dame Judi Dench has a dog hat with flappy ears, posting bizarre messages online. We are living in the darkest of times.

So check out this High School Musical reunion from Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale. Vanessa’s moves with that wine are very relatable.

He roped his entire family into a living room dance party. I have to admit, his son’s face is an entire mood.

Even though she’s in California, she joined those in her native India applauding doctors and nurses fighting the virus.

She’s been hosting meditation sessions on her Instagram, featuring her own flute playing. I could watch it forever.

I’m not sure if banjo is the most soothing of instruments, but “Banjo Balm” is the greatest caption a Tweet has ever had.

Other celebs tried to offer more…Practical advice.

Neil Diamond rewrote Sweet Caroline to be a bit more in line with current WHO guidelines…”hands washing hands.”

We knew he had to do “Wonderwall,” but this rendition is a little bit different from what we’re used to. At least it’s exactly the right length of time to make sure you’ve washed your hands…

And if you’re still growing bored, Sam Neill is offering us some poetry.

And let me tell you, I could listen to his voice for days. Please never stop Sam Neill.

Can she host one for me, please? And how are her kids so smiley after a week stuck in the house together? Jessica, give us your secrets!

Like Arnold feeding his miniature horses. In his kitchen. You never thought you needed this, but it will fill your soul.

The person you need is Kristin Chenoweth who has given us the greatest version of cleaning ever. High notes plus Chlorox wipes.

But if you’re looking for some slightly more adult content…

Paul Feig is hosting “Quarantine Cocktail Time,” mixing up exciting new drinks every night so that you don’t have to drink alone.

Just ask Pink, who revealed that she attempted to cut her own hair after drinking too much wine while in self-isolation. Never change, Pink.

But the queen of all things boozy has to be Ina Garten.

Now, the Barefoot Contessa star doesn’t look like your typical party animal, but she has been keeping her 2.2 million Instagram followers entertained in the best way during this pandemic.

Yesterday, the TV personality shared her recipe for a giant cosmopolitan cocktail…

And hilariously captioned her video with: “It’s always cocktail hour in a crisis! Recipe link in profile. #staysafe”

Plenty of vodka goes into the jug…

“Two cups of vodka, good vodka,” Ina says, giving a cheeky nod to her iconic “good vanilla” line.

And explained: “I like to make a lot of cosmos. You never know who’s gonna stop by… Wait a minute, no one’s stopping by!”

Because she certainly knows how to shake that cocktail tin! “You have to shake it for 30 seconds,” Ina adds. “You have lots of time, it’s not a problem. During a crisis, cocktail hour can be almost any hour.”

She finishes her video by pouring out her giant cosmo in a giant martini glass…

Now that’s my kind of cocktail.

“Stay safe and have a very good time, and don’t forget the cocktails,” she declares, before taking a well-deserved sip (or gulp) of her handmade creation. “Mmm, delicious!”

But remember, always drink responsibly! Well, that may be a challenge with Ina’s lethal recipe…
