You remember Brooklyn Beckham: son of a very famous English footballer; husband to Nicola Peltz; a strong contender for worst photographer of all time.
Now, in the grand tradition of nepotism babies, he’s found another hobby that he can pretend is his actual job.
In a new video for Bustle, he teaches viewers how to make a gin and tonic, but not before he informs us all that he’s “experimental” and a “nutter in the kitchen.”
Brooklyn “nutter” Beckham then proceeds to make a hilariously straightforward gin and tonic, containing – gasp – gin, tonic, lime, mint, rosemary, cucumber, and ice. “That is really good. Wow,” he says with a proud smile at the end of the video, happy at another day’s ‘work’.
Other highlights of the Bustle video include Brooklyn’s expert attention to detail – “I pour about that much,” he says with barely a glance at the amount of gin being poured into the glass – and the part when he describes squeezing the mint as getting “all the smells out.” How technical!
This has been coming from Brooklyn. Following his iconic foray into photography a few years ago, David Beckham’s son decided to become a professional chef.
It went about as well as you’d expect: his online video series, Cookin’ With Brooklyn (Bake It Like Beckham was right there!), received backlash after it emerged over 60 professionals were involved in making each episode, reportedly for a whopping cost of $100,000 each episode.

“As he minces around his kitchen, all tattooed fingers and gorgeous floppy hair, I can’t help but grieve for the fact that Brooklyn’s mam has probably never eaten his food, even though his dream is to become a big-time chef,” was how the Irish Examiner reviewed an episode of the show earlier this year.
Where will Brooklyn’s ‘talent’ take him next?
