In honor of Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the legendary barman Alessandro Palazzi of Dukes St. James London will be serving a limited edition martini called the “Jubilee Martini”.
The Jubilee Martini will be made in front of guests using only the best British ingredients and served in a crystal cut antique glass from the Queen’s 1953 coronation. Amongst the fine ingredients is the rare ‘Booth’s’ Gin from the 1970s, known as a favorite of Her Majesty the Queen and Her Late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother. Another luscious ingredient used in the cocktail is ‘Sacred’ Cherry liquor, a concoction made of the oil from over 100 cherry stones and sprayed using an antique perfume bottle on the martini.
The extravagant will be served as of June 1 at the famous Dukes Bar within the – where Sir Ian Fleming wrote the James Bond line, “shaken not stirred.”
