The Golden Era cocktail

A toast to 40 years of the Toronto International Film Festival

It's hard to believe, but the Toronto International Film Festival has been around for 40 years. To celebrate TIFF's birthday, Julien Salomone, master mixologist and co-owner of East Thirty-Six and Boutique Bar, came up with the Golden Era cocktail, a Manhattan-like bourbon cocktail.

1 oz. Bourbon
1/2 oz. Amaro Montenegro
1/2 oz. white vermouth
1 dash bitters
lemon twist

In an Old Fashioned glass, pour all ingredients over ice and stir.

Garnish with a lemon twist.
