When celebs come to Toronto for the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), it's not just about the movies -- they also come to shop in some of our amazing stores, to dine in some of our top restaurants and, perhaps most importantly, to party at some of our hottest bars.

Which got us to thinking about what Hollywood's A-list (from George Clooney to Madonna) will be sipping on at the festival's hottest fêtes. Turns out the answer is SKYY Vodka, the official drink sponsor of the film festival.

And though you may not be able to make it to the city to see the stars themselves, we thought it would be nice to sip on something celeb-worthy the next time you're watching a Hollywood hit. So here are three of the top celeb-inspired creations that will make an appearance at this year's parties.

Inspired by Blake Lively in Hick.


1 oz. vodka

2 oz. pineapple juice

2 oz. ginger ale

Fill a tall glass with ice. Build ingredients over ice. Stir gently to mix. Garnish with a fresh mint sprig.


Wilde Ginger
