Are you eating/sleeping/breathing the Jubilee? Well, now you can drink it too.

The mixing maestros at The Botanist, in London's fashionable Sloane Square, have created a range of cocktails inspired by members of the Royal Family.


This week we were lucky to taste all the provocatively-titled tipples. Bitter and Twisted (The Camilla), Strong and Stoic (The Duke of Cambridge) and Ginger Nut (Prince Harry - who else?) were all delicious, but our favourites were those representing The Queen and The Duchess of Cambridge.

What's more, we managed to get hold of the recipes, so you can recreate them at home. Enjoy!

Good Save the Quince – The Queen

1.5 spoonful of quince compote
50ml dry fig infused Tanqueray gin
25ml pressed apple juice
Add all ingredients into a large glass top with a shaker and mix.

Strain into a martini glass

Sweet and Sparkling - The Duchess of Cambridge

1 passion fruit
15ml Smirnoff vodka
10ml Chambord liqueur
Top up with champagne
Slice passion fruit in half. 

Pour vodka and contents of half a passion fruit into a glass and shake. Strain and pour into a flute glass.

Top with Champagne and float Chambord liqueur. Garnish with other half of passion fruit.
