A bizzare letter requesting a highly specific gin cocktail for 'Bob' De Niro at a New York hotel has made it's way into the hands of mystified journalists.
The Hollywood acting legend showed his diva side with the letter from his staff requesting a perfectly cold cocktail, shaken not stirred with 'little frothy chips'.
The note, entitled 'Robert De Niro's cocktail Request', said, "Bob likes gin martinis. We'll need gin, cucumbers and stemmed martini glasses. The key is just to have chilled stemmed martini glasses. The bar tender should muddle a cucumber in the shaker and then mix with ice and gin. He or she should then SHAKE like crazy, an extra 30-45 seconds past the way they teach you in bar-tending school, so that little frothy chips form."
And this was only step one!
Step two focussed on presentation and serving. No seriously!
It said, "Don't fill the glass all the way, only two thirds at most, so he doesn't spill or it doesn't get warm in his hands."
Finally, just to add insult to injury, the note finished with, "You can garnish with a cucumber slice as well."
Err okay then bossy pants!
Weirdly Robert never turned up to the event which means all of this effort was completely in vain.
What do you think?
