The Connaught BarThanks to Gwyneth Paltrow's GOOP newsletter, we're privy to a fun cocktail recipe from The Connaught Bar. In the St. Patrick's Day edition, GP tracked down recipes from some of her fave watering holes around the world. Among them? One of our top spots for libations: The Connaught Bar, designed by David Collins at the hotel of the same name in London town. "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." And without further ado:
