The royal family’s favourite drinks

Queen Elizabeth II

The Daily Telegraph’s Andrew Alderson was granted unprecedented access to the Queen in 2009, spending two weeks with the Monarch.

He noted that she is “ very much a creature of habit. Every day, she likes a gin and Dubonnet immediately before lunch.”

It was also reported in an ITV documentary that the Queen likes the drink to be served as one part gin, two parts Dubonnet, with two cubes of ice and a slice of lemon with the pips removed.

Dubonnet is a sweet wine-based aperitif, a blend of fortified wine, herbs and spices, including quinine and was first served in 1846. The Queen’s mother was also said to be a fan of the drink.
