Michelin-starred chef José Andrés has had a bit of a bumpy year. The owner of 10 restaurants in Washington D.C., Andres was set to open yet another eatery in one of Donald Trump’s hotels this year until things got, well, political. Needless to say, the man could use a drink after the last two weeks, and Andrés indulged in many, many beverages on the set of Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday.
Before the cooking demo even gets underway, Andrés begins pouring shots of mezcal for his host. Then, while crafting a couple of margaritas, the chef explains why it’s become increasingly important to drink copious amounts of tequila.
"This is the best Thanksgiving drink, why?” Andrés says. “Because, my friend, they are building a wall, and if they build a wall, we need to stock all the tequila and mezcal that we can!"
"You need quarterbacks on one side of the wall, and baseball catchers on the other," Andrés says as he tosses a couple ripe avocados into the crowd.
By the end of the five minute segment, Andrés has taken three shots of tequila, gulped down a margarita, and thrown food at a live studio audience.
We're going to assume that Andrés is still having a hard time dealing with the outcome of the election. But regardless of who the president is, this man is a living legend.
