A Royal toast

Raise a glass in honour of Her Majesty with her favourite tipple

 Among the many little joys of our sadly departed Queen was this simple, two-ingredient cocktail – gin and Dubonnet. Dubonnet is a ruby-red fortified red wine infused with herbs and spices and quinine, a very bitter ingredient that gives the drink a bit of an edge.

So, join us as we raise a glass to a life well lived and a monarch the like of which we will never see again. 

To make:

Pour one part gin and two parts Dubonnet over lots of ice. Stir. Add a lemon or orange twist, if you wish.
