Cocktail named for the late Queen Mother who was said to be a big fan of both gin and Dubonnet. She lived to be 101 of course, not that we’re saying this cocktail will help you repeat that feat.


25ml gin 2

5ml Dubonnet

cocktail making fruit

20ml Aperol

5ml dark Jamaican rum



Stir all the ingredients with ice in a mixing glass or jug: not for too long, ten seconds should do it. Strain the drink into a stemmed cocktail glass or the classic martini glass, leaving the ice in the mixing vessel. Garnish with a twist of lemon and a twist of orange.
