The Dorchester Hotel: Best Bars (and Bartenders) in London

February 10, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Dorchester Hotel Bar, LondonBarman Giuliano Morandin is not just tops in London; he's possibly one of the best bartenders in the world. In a recent article on "the world's greatest hotel bartenders," Travel + Leisure names London's Dorchester, the swanky hotel overlooking Hyde Park, as offering some of the capital's best libations-- served up by "the dapper and charming Morandin." It's only fitting that a luxury Mayfair hotel of such great repute, reflecting the highest of traditional values, should be home to such a classy bar, and an award-winning bartender who is "gloriously old school." T + L got the scoop on Morandin's signature cocktail, The Martinez. Details below.

* 1 oz. Dorchester Old Tom Gin

* 1 1/2 oz. Punt e Mes

* 1/2 oz. Maraschino Luxardo

* Dash of Dorchester Boker's bitters

Shake together and strain into a martini glass. Squeeze an orange twist and drop into drink.
