The Best Celebrity Drinking Squads on Instagram

Thank you, Instagram, for serving as our window into the glamorous life of star-studded #SquadGoals. With some celeb squads fluctuating by the hour—we’re looking at you, Taylor Swift—Instagram posts have become required viewing for anyone trying to keep up with the hectic party politics of the rich and famous. And while other groups, like Amy Schumer’s comedian pals or Action Bronson’s Viceland crew, are a bit more easygoing, their Instagram squad pics are no less entertaining to peruse and envy. Regardless of how you like to fill your feed, here are our the top celebrity drinking squads to follow on Instagram.

Taylor Swift’s All-Star Girl Group

Taylor Swift, Karlie Kloss, Lorde

Tay Tay’s pack is broad and diverse, stretching from fellow musicians to models to Hollywood, but regulars to the star’s entourage are BFFs Karlie Kloss and Lorde. When they’re not sipping Champagne at the VMAs, we’re guessing they all fall into line with the magnificent Swift, sipping her preferred mixture of Vodka and Diet Coke.

The Comedy Line-up

Amy Schumer, Aziz Ansari, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle

Funny people tend to stick together (and ‘gram together)—SNL alums may appear in the same movies, correspondents from The Daily Show orbit one another constantly, and Apatown may as well submit to the census—but this crew includes some of our favorites. Amy Schumer managed to rally this backstage group shot between sets, which is usually time reserved for comedians to down some liquid courage before facing a massive audience.

Action Bronson's Ravenous Squad

Action Bronson, Meyhem Lauren, Alchemist, Big Body Bes

Action indulges in plenty of…substances on his Viceland show F*ck, That’s Delicious. Between posts of ridiculous smoking devices, his Instagram feed features a number of rapper-turned-foodie stars drinking as they feast. Plus, there are constant boozy cameos from other star chefs, including Mario Batali and Guy Fieri. We will always love Bam Bam Baklava for his love of nut-based Middle Eastern pastries and his ability to go hard.

Champagne Papi’s Grammy-Gobbling Squad

Drake, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj

Drake doesn’t mess around in any aspect of life. He wrecks music awards and the Instagram game, both with the help of killer squad members Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj (and his dad Dennis Graham, who’s become an Insta celeb in his own right). Between concert shots on his own account, Champagne Papi, Drake can be frequently seen with a fifth in hand, or in this case, a flask of the brown stuff on stage with his Young Money crew.

Martha and Snoop’s Dinner Party Pals

Martha Stewart, Snoop Dogg, Bella Thorne, 50 Cent

We consider anything involving Martha Stewart or Snoop Dogg to be pure gold, so it’s no surprise their Instagram game is on point. With new celeb guests on every episode of Potluck Dinner, there are plenty of pics of the hosts cheersing with famous drinking partners, including this adorable behind-the-scenes shot with 50 Cent and Bella Thorne.

Big Little Lies IRL

Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Zoë Kravitz, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern

The stars of HBO’s Big Little Lies do plenty of drinking as they talk Monterey social politics and plot devious revenge against one another, but the crew also gets their beach drink on in real life. Reese Witherspoon can often be spotted with her official squad—Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston and Drew Barrymore, among other members—but we like to see her drinking with her co-stars too.

The Power Couple

Chrissy Teigen, John Legend

OK, so John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are more of an Insta-couple than a full-on crew, but we can’t help including them among our favorite drinking ‘grammers. Teigen definitely leads the duo to the bar and back—see: Teigen’s own invention, the Freaky Teigy rum cocktail. Our favorite part of this feed is the aftermath of her boozy exploits, because we should all aspire to be Chrissy Teigen eating post-yacht party spaghetti in bed.
