Grace and Frankie, Netflix’s longest-running series to date, reunites lifelong friends Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin for a wacky and heartwarming buddy comedy with a stellar supporting ensemble to boot.

If you’d like to see the origin of Fonda’s and Tomlin’s on-screen friendship, check out 1980’s 9 to 5 starring the dynamic duo and Dolly Parton. Not just a killer song!

After “working 9 to 5,” take a page out of Grace’s drinking playbook with a Watermelon Vodka Cocktail and get ready for this Grace and Frankie drinking game!
