Among the many reasons to stay at the swanky Egerton House Hotel is its glorious Victoria and Albert Suite, complete with private outdoor garden terrace. To celebrate where you are, look to Antonio, the house barman famous for his signature martini. Antonio’s secret: an ice-chilled glass, Sicilian lemons, and a touch of vermouth, all poured in such a way that it creates a bell on top of the glass. Even with typical British understatement, we’re forced to say, “Amazing.”
