Smirnoff x Gorillaz is Back With a Cocktail Making Live Masterclass

November 21, 2022 Share

Prep your cocktail shakers, as you’ll be bringing them out the cupboard tomorrow for Smirnoff x Gorillaz and their cocktail masterclass.

Almost a whole month ago (jeez, time does fly), DDW was giving you insight on Smirnoff’s latest collaboration; limited edition Vodka and cocktail recipes alongside the world-famous band, Gorillaz. If you paid close enough attention, we did hint at the surprises of the collaboration not being done, and today we are back to reveal yet another one of the exciting things happening behind the Smirnoff x Gorillaz collaboration; a masterclass.

Tomorrow, Thursday the 24th of November at 6pm GMT, none other than Murdoc Niccals will be giving an interactive cocktail masterclass and Q&A. As he puts it himself: “come for the cocktails, but stay for the banter”. He’ll prepare his ever-famous Vodka Murdini, for which you’ll require the following:

a cocktail shaker



a martini glass


olive brine


a bottle of Smirnoff’s world-famous No. 21 vodka

As per the preparation, it’s all about cooling the shaker with some ice, measuring the vodka, vermouth and brine in a jigger and then shaking it like you mean it. Using your strainer you’ll then pour your mixture into a martini glass and garnish with pickles. And why pickles? As those true Gorillaz fanatics already know, that’s Murdoc Niccals’ affectionate nickname.

Talking about the devil, here’s what Gorillaz band member Murdoc Niccals has to say about tomorrow’s upcoming Smirnoff x Gorillaz masterclass: “Would you like to know the secret to my signature cocktail, The Vodka Murdini? Or maybe you just want to see me shaking one of those cocktail things while I spin inspiring yarns and solve all your problems? Then tune in to my LIVE mixology masterclass with Smirnoff! Not into cocktails or top-draw banter? Just sit back and behold my dazzling new tuxedo!”
