The Gilded Lily

In celebration of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee (60 years on the throne), The London Bar at The London NYC has unveiled The Gilded Lily ($17), a specialty cocktail made with fresh summer strawberries, St. Germain, and grains of paradise, which are North African peppercorns with a unique cardamom-like flavor.
