The Queen's Cocktail - A Gin and Limoncello Cocktail Recipe

The Queen’s Cocktail

Mixed Drinks with Limoncello

How do you make a gin and tonic that's fit for a queen? You add a little nectar of the gods to it.

The Queen of England was crowned in 1953. Think about that. She's been the queen longer that most people you know have been alive. 

And do you think she lived that long, and with such vigor, by drinking your average gin and tonic?

No, no, no.

I think if you asked her, she'd attribute her longevity to this cocktail right here:

If you don't believe me, just ask her.

No access to the queen for Q&A?

Oh well, guess you'll have to take my word for it.

Lovely drink, but the word is ‘crowned’, not coronated.

It doesn’t take long to hit the limits of my knowledge about royal matters, but that’s a new record! hahahahaha
