Toasting the Olympics in London

Submitted by on May 17, 2012 – 12:04 amNo Comment

Heading across the pond to take in the Olympics this summer, Road Trips Foodies?

What better way to celebrate the London 2012 Summer Olympics than by raising a gold “metal” martini in toast to the athletes.

The Lanesborough, a luxury hotel at Hyde Park Corner, Knightsbridge, London, England, will be offering a gold “ring” to each thirsty, game-supporting guest. The new, limited-time “Gold Metal Martini” cocktail will be served up in a chilled crystal glass with a pure gold powdered rim in the hotel’s Library Bar.

The Gold Metal Martini boasts a sophisticated look but is simple to create, says its creator, Alexandre Caujolle, Food and Beverage Director at The Lanesborough.

The ingredients? Gin or vodka plus a touch of vermouth garnished with gold powder. (You do know, of course, that gold does not change the taste of the drink because it is biologically inert?)

The Gold Metal Martini will be available for order leading up to, and through the games starting next month.
