Cue theme song: You know that it’s Tom and Ari’s time. These are the best days of their lives….

Vanderpump Rules stars, Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix dish behind the scenes dirt in addition to sharing Fancy AF cocktail recipes in their new book, Fancy AF Cocktails.

Creating this book wasn’t an easy task. VPR fans remember the popular couple famously fighting over Ariana’s upcoming cocktail book deal a few seasons ago, and how her other half/half of the hip WeHo bar TomTom wasn’t a part of it.

According to the NY Post, Ariana explained, “That project never went past the book proposal stage.” The bartending boss babe continued, “That was dead, and months later, I did Danny Pellegrino’s podcast, ‘Everything Iconic.’ We were chatting afterward, and he convinced me to pick it back up again. Doing it with Tom this time just made sense.”

The couple’s recipe book, co-authored by the hilarious Everything Iconic podcast host, Danny Pellegrino, is filled with 80 libations and behind the scenes drama about their personal lives, friends, fights and even their boss, Lisa Vanderpump. “We just want to show that making drinks doesn’t have to be taken so seriously,” Ariana told The Post. Clearly, Ariana doesn’t take making drinks as important as she does comedy.

The bartenders penned, “A few seasons back on the show, we stared talking about a cocktail book. Everywhere we went, people would ask when it was coming.” The cute couple continued, “Truth is, throughout that time we were always creating new cocktails. We wanted them to be epic.”

The book begins with an important message from the authors. “Before we get started, remember to drink responsibility, or at least hide it well. We aren’t the morality police, but don’t f–king drink and drive,” they penned. “And don’t drink and rage-text. … Finally it’s tradition to say a few words before drinking with friends, so we want to leave you with a a little toast: Raise your glass high, this one’s for you.”

Tomiana (I just made that up for Tom and Ariana and really like it. Please help make the nickname mainstream!) and Danny spill some behind-the-scenes tea from VPR in vignettes between the unique and drool-worthy cocktail recipes. Highlights include when Tom had to share a twin size bed with Jax Taylor, the truth behind the ‘pasta,’ and even a real-life rage-text from Tequila Katie, known to her some as Katie Maloney-Schwartz.
