Cocktail Review: The Toronto Cocktail

The Toronto Cocktail

Even though this is named after the famous Canadian city, this aggressively herbaceous cocktail is insanely popular in Argentina, where the locals frequently mix it with Coca-Cola. Toronto Cocktail flavor is often described as “medicinal” with an intense aroma and a distinct menthol flavor that lingers after you sip it. The fernet gives it a spicy, herby bite while the simple syrup and the orange help to sand off the rough edges.
