The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance: The Official Cocktail of the Philadelphia Film Festival

The magic of movies is something folks of all ages can revel in. Getting lost in the glow of the silver screen for an hour or two is a great escape from the everyday world. Each year, the Philadelphia Film Festival commemorates that escape, and is gearing up for a jam-packed 23rd year of shows and events taking place from October 16–26.

Drink Philly is proud to celebrate the movies and the Philadelphia Film Society with the official cocktail of the Festival, “The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance.” Tito’s Vodka and fresh lemon and mint are used to create a delicious drink that will be available in finer bars throughout the city for the duration of the event.

The beverage is named for a new Alejandro Iñárritu film that will be shown on the opening night of the festival, Thursday, October 16. Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance is a bold, black comedy starring Michael Keaton as an actor, famous for portraying an iconic superhero, who struggles to mount a Broadway play about his life as he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career and himself. The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance cocktail is also bold and extremely drinkable but not overly sweet.

Check out the recipe and the list of bars that will be serving the special drink (we’ll be updating this list frequently, so be sure to check back!). The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance will be available starting October 16 at:
