Quarantini (quarantine + martini)

"Quarantini” (quarantine + martini) is a cocktail name that was mentioned on the American medical comedy-drama television series Scrubs, on the episode “My Quarantine” that originally aired on February 8, 2005. Danni Sullivan (played by actress Tara Reid) offered “Quarantinis.” The term “Quarantini” was first entered in the Urban Dictionary on August 2, 2006.

The 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak made the “Quarantini” cocktail name popular. “I wonder if anyone has come up with a Corona-based Martini: call it the Quarantini” was posted on Twitter by Matt Moore on March 4, 2020. “Oh no I just thought of ‘quarantini’, a martini you make when you’re staying in...” was posted on Twitter by Kate Mooney on March 6, 2020. “Today’s drink special: the Quarantini. It’s just a regular martini, but you drink it all alone in your house” was posted on Twitter by Bobby Veejay Marley (and others) on March 10, 2020.


Wikipedia: Martini (cocktail)
