To coincide with the 36th annual Toronto International Film Festival, Drake Hotel bar manager Jonathan Humphrey has created a drink inspired by Chinatown, the Roman Polanski film in which Faye Dunaway plays the femme fatale who inhabits the lens of Jack Nicholson’s private eye.
1 1/2 ounces vodka
1 1/4 ounces fresh mango juice
3/4 ounces lime juice
1/2 ounces agave syrup
3 jalapeno wheels (two in the shaker, one for garnish, seeds removed if desired)
2 dashes Regans' Orange Bitters
To make the Faye, simply muddle the ingredients listed here in a cocktail shaker, shake vigorously and strain into a classic coupette. Garnish with the remaining jalapeno slice and prepare for your close-up.
