Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively might be famous for their cheeky comments and remarks about and towards each other on social media, but they sure know how to get the romance flaming every now and then. Like they did when they recently stepped out for a date night — leaving their two kids home — to celebrate Reynolds’ new liquor company.
The 41-year-old Deadpool star’s liquor company, Aviation Gin, saw its first ever employee orientation on Tuesday night which was hosted by him. And later on, he brought his wife to a private event for the group. Lively, 30, stunned in a white off-shoulder, form-fitting, over the knee Cushnie Et Och dress, which she decided to team with stiletto sandals. Reynolds looked suave in a navy suit with no tie.
“Huge @Aviationgin party last night. We crushed it til well past 9pm. #AviationGin #AviationOwner,” Reynolds posted about the night on his Instagram on Wednesday. Reynolds purchased an ownership interest in Aviation Gin — the liquor company which was originally founded in Portland — earlier this year, and soon became the company’s chairman.
“I’m inspired by George Clooney, Batman & Robin,” Reynolds mentioned at the event, referring to Clooney’s Casamigos tequila company, of which Clooney is a co-founder, and also cheekily referencing Clooney’s most embarrassing movie of all times.
“I kept ordering this same Negroni [cocktail] again and again and I didn’t know why it was so good,” Reynolds mentioned recalling the first time he has tasted Aviation Gin. “It was because of the gin, Aviation Gin,” he added. “I realized I didn’t need the Negroni—I just needed the gin.”And of course — slapping his classic humor to promote the drink, he shared some pretty legitimate insights, saying: “We’re at the beginning of what feels like a modern-day gin craze. Millennials are drinking it, young people are drinking it. Not toddlers, but young people.”
Reynolds and Lively — who have been married since 2012 — are full of such quirky, off-the-track humor when it comes to each other, and of course, their kids James and Inez. Their social media accounts are proof of the countless jokes they crack at the expense of each other.
Back in May, when it was revealed that his eldest daughter, James, had lent her voice for Taylor Swift’s single, Gorgeous, the Green Lantern star had opened up about how it had given her a ‘terrible ego.’ “That was a voice memo that ended up on a song,” Reynolds had said on Good Morning America. “It’s pretty amazing. My daughter has a really, really terrible ego problem now after that song.”
