Martini(s) at the Connaught Bar – ranked no9 in the world!

Martinis (silently stirred not shaken) at the Connaught bar

One of the highlights of #dimitrisgoestoLondon has been the famous Martini Trolley at the Connaught Hotel Bar in Mayfair. And what’s that, you may ask…

Well, renowned as it is for its legendary perfect martinis (apart from its beautiful clientele), the Connaught Bar (recently ranked no9 in the World’s 50 Best Bars) has taken the ceremonial elements of this particular cocktail experience one step further with a deliciously designed Martini Trolley.

Connaught Martinis are only quietly stirred, never shaken (this is not how James Bond likes his, but who cares?). Only the purest martinis are made in order to savour the superiority of the ingredients, with premium gin and vodka brands, while the vermouth is the crispy Gancia Dry from Italy, only available at the Connaught Bar.

With extracts of lavender, coriander, cardamom, ginger, grapefruit, vanilla and liquorice, the big question is, which flavour should you try first? Choose your own next time you visit London!
