Actor Robert Davi claimed that Frank Sinatra ever gave him a choice to sit down for his first drink with him or be “fired” from a film set, according to a report Friday.

The moment happened when the pair were filming ‘ Contract on Cherry Street,” was released in 1977, when Davi, now 67, was in his 20s, he told the Daily News.

“I had my first Jack Daniels with Frank Sinatra,” Davi remembered. “It was this place in Little Italy on Mulberry Street, at two in the morning.”

Sinatra was reportedly at the location with a few others.

Davi was quickly given a glass with “two fingers” worth of Jack Daniels, water and ice, he told the Daily News.

“Here’s your drink,” Sinatra reportedly told him. “This will be for you where you want to go without you hurt.”

“Five rehabs later, I am still drinking this drink,” Davi said jokingly to the outlet. “I’m kidding about the rehab.”
