Yum, yum: The Faye Dunaway

Officially launched last week, the Drake Hotel’s dining room has been transformed into Chinatown circa 1940s’ Los Angeles, just in time for TIFF. Draped from top to bottom in red and gold, with dragon fruit cocktails on the Sky Yard, cabaret performances in the Lounge, cigarette girls out front and a playful Chinese menu to match, the 11-day celebration is not to be missed. Throughout TIFF (now until the 18th), the Drake will be serving until 4 a.m. 

This version of the Drake’s Dining Roadshow will last until Saturday, November 19, so if you’re not able to get there this week, you have lots of time to sample the delicious menu. 

No good menu would be complete without tasty cocktails to go with it, and the Drake has created an amazing cocktail menu inspired by TIFF and Chinatown. We’ve snagged one of the recipes to share with you – the Faye Dunaway, named after the actress best known for her role in Chinatown.



Faye Dunaway
1 1/2 oz Skyy Vodka
1 1/4 oz fresh mango juice
3/4 oz lime juice
1/2 agave syrup
2 jalapeno wheels
2 dashes Reagans’ Orange Bitters
  
Muddle ingredients, shake and strain into a coupette. Garnish with a jalapeno slice.

We may not have time to recreate this recipe at home, but you best believe we’ll be popping in to the Drake for a late-night Faye Dunaway after the red carpet.

 Enjoy responsibly, and let us know what you thought of this little piece ‘o heaven in a glass: @rockitpromo.
