It was widely speculated by those within the royal circle that the late Queen Elizabeth II was partial to the often overlooked drink Dubbonet, which was first marketed back in 1846, when the British monarch was just 9 years into her almost 64-year reign.

This sweet, aromatised wine-based quinquina is often enjoyed as an aperitif, but can also be consumed in the form of a gin-based cocktail, which was apparently the preferred tipple of the late Queen Elizabeth. Serve today to ensure a party of royal quality!

  • 30ml of your preferred gin
  • 60ml of Dubonnet
  • One slice of lemon
  • Ice cubes


    1. Add the gin to a small wine glass first, followed by Dubonnet, then add the lemon, after making sure all pips have been removed from its flesh.

    2. Add two large ice cubes - or more if it’s a warm day - placed on top of the lemon slice to act as a mixer for the spirits.

    3. Serve immediately.
