What kind of Canadian company would we be, if we didn’t have a Canadian cocktail on the list? The Toronto is a riff of the class Manhattan, that goes all the way back to pre-Prohibition era.
However, unlike its more famous cousin to the south, The Toronto goes a little bit away from the classic 2 – 1 – 2 ratio. Instead, a touch of Fernet Branca is used in place of sweet vermouth. A little bit of sweet syrup also helps tame the bitter, herbal notes of the Fernet, keeping the flavours of the cocktail balanced.
How to Make
Firstly, smoke your glass.
Using a Mixing Beaker, combine all the ingredients. Add ice and stir for 20 rotations. Strain into a rocks glass or coupe.
Garnish with an orange twist.
