This drink is perfect for a party (when you might have a bartender on hand).
The Connaught Bar is of my favorite bars in London, though not only for its extremely elegant interiors designed by David Collins. Their mixologist, Italian Agostino Perrone, is famous for revamping the bar’s cocktails, and making this one of the best spots in London for an impressively well crafted drink.
