It’s official, TIFF has landed in Toronto and the city is buzzing with excitement! To celebrate, the Thompson Hotel has launched 4 delicious cocktails inspired by movies that are showing at #TIFF17. After getting a tasty sneak peek, we’re sharing how to make each one at home for your own private film screenings! It’s time for all of us to dust off that bar cart and channel our inner James Bond because we all know he likes it shaken, not stirred.

See below for how to make these film festival-inspired cocktails courtesy of The Thompson Toronto:

THE MARSHALL

EDISON’S MILK PUNCH

SNACK-TAIL

Inspired by the movie ‘Downsizing,’ a suburban couple choose to have themselves shrunk by a Norwegian doctor who promises them that they will be living a life of luxury on a budget and at that size. Served in a tall shot glass as a mini, snack-sized cocktail. A little sweet and sour, this mini is the perf aperitif before seeing the film!

BACKHANDED COMPLIMENT

Super refreshing and zingy thanks to the ginger syrup, this baby will become your go-to for all your future dinner parties!
