London’s Donovan Bar Somehow Encapsulated The Spirit Of Churchill In A Cocktail

The Winston Donovan Bar London

A larger-than-life character best known for smoking cigars, downing whisky, and saving the world from Nazis, Winston Churchill is as much lore as man at this point. It takes a brave soul to try to encapsulate that spirit in a single cocktail, but Federico Pavan, Director of Mixology at London’s Donovan Bar, embraced the challenged and delivered via The Winston.

A short after dinner drink made with Scotch, Mandarine Liqueur, eucalyptus, peppermint tea, and topped with a smoke bubble, The Winston brings together flavors from across the globe to create a cocktail that’s as powerful as it is refined.
