The Terms of My Surrender Cocktail


The Traverse City Film Festival is toasting Michael Moore’s new one-man Broadway show, The Terms of My Surrender, with a cocktail of the same name. The show takes satirical aim at Donald Trump. Amanda Danielson (co-owner of Traverse City’s hip eateries Trattoria Stella and The Franklin) created the recipe that will be batched out at the Filmmaker’s Lounge. Traverse City Film Festival staff encourages you to make it at home—and to toast Michael’s Broadway success.

"A little bitter. A little sweet. Totally serious."


  • 2 parts Cocchi Rosa
  • 2 parts Campari
  • 3 parts Dolin Vermouth blanc
  • 3 parts Mammoth Gin
  • 1 part fresh lime juice
  • 3 parts Wolf Moon Citrus
  • 2 dashes Peychaud's bitters


Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker, fill with ice, shake and strain into a chilled coupe glass.
