TIFF party cocktails

The Toronto International Film Festival brings some of the biggest names in Hollywood to Canada's largest city. And along with them comes the A-lister way of living, from swanky hotels, to pampering spas, to hot spots to sip on a classy cocktail. While you might not be able to hit the bevy of celeb hot spots this year to catch a glimpse of Brad and Angelina or Leo, you can at least feel like you're sipping in style with these amazing film fest inspired SKYY Vodka and FIJI water cocktails. We have the inside scoop on what drinks our favourite celebrities will be tasting so you can bring the Hollywood glamour home. (Hint: to go all out A-list style, you need to add FIJI water ice cubes. A celeb fave, FIJI water ice cubes gives your drinks refreshment without altering the taste.)

The classic TIFF party
If you're hosting a classy party with guests dressed to the nine (who needs a red carpet?), then this is the perfect cocktail to hand your guests as they enter the door. Inspired by Don McKellar and his screen adaptation Blindness starring Gael García Bernal, Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo and McKellar, this cocktail is the quintessential TIFF drink.
SKYY Stellar McKellar
3 oz. SKYY Vodka
Dash of Dry Vermouth
Lemon Twist and/or olive

Pour SKYY Vodka into a cocktail shaker with FIJI water ice cubes, add a dash of Dry Vermouth and shake. Pour into a chilled martini glass. Add an olive or two or garnish using a lemon twist.



The artsy TIFF party
A film fest regular is Canadian director Atom Egoyan who brings inspiring pieces to the festival. This year Egoyan brings Adoration a challenging drama that is on many not-to-be-missed lists and if you're having a party that is a quirky as the director, then this Egoyan inspired cocktail is a must-have.
Atom's Amarula Colada
3 oz. SKYY Vodka
1.5 oz. Coconut water
Fresh coconut shavings or chocolate

Shake Amarula and Coconut water with FIJI water ice cubes. Pour into a chilled martini glass and garnish with coconut or chocolate shavings.



The trendy TIFF party
If there's one thing this TIFF regular knows, it's how to hit up the hottest spots the city has to offer during the festival (or any other time of the year for that matter). And chances are Scott Speedman (who is starring in Atom Egoyan's Adoration) is going to be sipping on the best cocktails at the trendiest spots. So for your hip party be sure to add this Speedman inspired cocktail to the mix.
SKYY Speedman Sparkler
3 oz. SKYY Vodka
