Inspired by the star-studded extravaganza that is the Toronto International Film Festival, the InterContinental Hotel in Yorkville is shaking up two TIFF-inspired drinks to toast our favourite, hunky screen idols.
Based on the actors we've seen around town this week, our ideal leading man beverage would be: 1 part Gael Garcia Bernal, 1 part Adrien Brody, 1 part Gerard Butler and a squeeze of Michael Cera.
For the real thing, hit the InterContinental before the festival is over. And go easy on these; they're heady stuff.
The Leading Man
4 black berries
1 ounce vodka
1/2 ounce crème de cassis
Splash of lemon juice
Splash of champagne
Muddle the berries in a tall glass and add crushed ice. Add remaining ingredients and stir.
