Celebratory drinks for the Platinum Jubilee

Bunting at the ready people, this week's episode is a right royal celebration of Her Majesty The Queen.

We taste two drinks created specially for the Platinum Jubilee. For £20, we have Foxdenton Jubilee Summer Pudding Gin Liqueur; add a few more noughts and you can buy the second product that we're tasting, the exceedingly regal Royal Salute Platinum Jubilee Edition, a snip at $20,000.

Having created cocktails for Her Majesty The Queen during his tenure at the American Bar at the Savoy, we thought it was only fitting to highlight the drinks of Joe Gilmore in his book Joe Gilmore And His Cocktails, and lastly, we head over to The Goring, a firm Royal favourite since it opened in 1910 to talk to its General Manager Michael Voigt, Bar Manager Tiago Mira and sample its Platinum Jubilee cocktails.

What we're mixing:

Dubonnet Cocktail

1 part gin

2 parts Dubonnet

Lemon twist


Stir ingredients over ice in a mixing glass. Pour into a chilled Nick & Nora garnish and garnish with a lemon zest.
