Royally Inebriated, Darling!
Some say that Kate has a penchant for Jack Daniel’s, but her preferred aperitif is the irreverently named Crack Baby, which was reportedly served at her own wedding reception.
INGREDIENTS Passion fruit vodka Champagne Orange peel to garnish METHOD Add chilled passion fruit vodka to a chilled glass. Top with chilled champagne. Garnish with a thin strip of orange zest.
THE PARTY PRINCES
Princes Harry, William and Charles have fairly simple tastes when it comes to drinks. In the absence of a Mahiki Treasure Chest, Wills opts for a pint of Stella Artois or a sambuca shot (classy), and Harry keeps it straight with Ciroc vodka. Meanwhile, Charles stays firmly in the early 2000s with a classic gin and vermouth dry martini. Here’s hoping it’s extra dirty.
Rumour has it this is her fave drink – a gin and Dubonnet.
INGREDIENTS ●2 parts Dubonnet 1 part gin METHOD Mix the ingredients. Serve over 2 ice cubes, with a slice of lemon and a cherry garnish.
Bride Pippa is usually a wine girl, with the odd Pimm’s at the tennis. However, the happiest day of your life calls for something more celebratory. It’s been reported that she and her groom James Matthews will toast their big day with a specially designed champagne cocktail. Here’s our fave: The Raspberry Sparkler.
INGREDIENTS Champagne Fresh raspberries tbsp raspberry liqueur METHOD Place 3 raspberries and raspberry liqueur in a champagne flute. Top with champagne.
