Even if you’re not competing in the London Olympics, you can still make a grab for the gold – with the special martini featured at the storied Lanesborough hotel near Hyde Park
Try out your lifts with the Olympic-worthy martinis with powdered rims of pure gold powder. Using the classic recipe of gin or vodka with a touch of vermouth, the Gold Medal Martini is served straight up in a chilled crystal martini glass lined with gold in honor of the Olympics.
While the glittering rim doesn’t change the taste of their preferred libation, it’s an easy way to show your Olympic spirit. No word on how many pounds it will put you back.
