Like most people, Padma Laskhmi has been doing her best to stay busy during her self-quarantine, from posting several adorable mother-daughter cooking lessons to sharing sexy dance sessions from her bathroom. But she’s also making sure to take some time for herself — with a delicious cocktail, of course.

How to Watch

Watch Top Chef Season 21 Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo and next day on Peacock.

On May 1, Padma took to Instagram to share her recipe for her preferred self-quarantine drink. As captured in the clip below, the Top Chef host showed her followers exactly how to craft a perfect margarita using lime juice, cucumbers, mint leaves, and, yes, plenty of tequila.

“We’ve been making lots of cooking videos, but it’s day 117 of quarantine, so I thought we could all use a drink,” she said at the beginning of the clip. We can’t disagree with that!

Padma also joked about her all-too-relatable motivation for making the drink in the caption, writing, “Just found out #littlehands won’t be going back to school until September."

Check out her step-by-step cocktail recipe below  — and watch until the end for a surprise twist!
