Ryan Reynolds has the perfect drink for dads.

The Free Guy actor presents the "mother of all cocktails" in the Father's Day ad for his Aviation American Gin. Joking about the pleasures of parenthood - he shares three daughters with wife Blake Lively: James, 6, Inez, 4, and Betty, 1½ - Reynolds gives step-by-step instructions to make a drink aptly named "The Vasectomy."

"First, fill a tall glass with ice the way children fill our lives with such joy. Next, pour 1 ounce of cranberry juice, sweet just like their little smiles. Then pour 3 ounces of tonic, so bubbly, just like I feel every day I wake up after a long, full night's sleep," he jokes.

Reynolds adds a squeeze of lemon before bringing in the gin - a comically heavy pour at first, before he corrects himself to only 1.5 ounces of the spirit. He stirs the cocktail and tastes it, saying sarcastically, "Now that is as refreshing as fatherhood."

In November, Reynolds told Access about what makes him the ultimate girl dad.

"I love being a girl dad. I have three daughters, which I never in a million years would imagine. I come from all boys. I have three older brothers," he said at the time. "So for me to have three daughters has been such a ride, and I love every second of it."

The proud dad also had a sweet response when asked whether his wife and daughters are the "superheroes" in his family.

"No joke, they're the most capable people I know," he said. "If anything got crazy or scary in my life, they're the first people that I would lean on. They have wisdom and strength, they're calm under fire, they have courage under fire - so yeah, to me [that] sounds like a true story."
