To get us started on the Platinum Jubilee we start with a Dubonnet and Gin, a favourite of the Queen Mother and reputed to be the Queen’s favourite cocktail, of which she partakes before lunch. Whether this is true or not, it is a tasty cocktail which we’re opting to have now. It’s a bank holiday today and we have typical bak holiday weather; a bit cold and wet, so hopefully this will help brighten the day.
This is rumoured to be Queen Elizabeth's favourite cocktail which she partake of before lunch. Gin and Dubonnet was a favourite of the Queen Mother, a preference which obviously influenced her daughter's palete.
Pour the dry gin to a small wine glass or tumbler.
Add the Dubonnet Red.
Place the lemon wheel in the glass and then top with two ice cubes.
