Here’s what everyone in the royal family likes to drink


The Brits are well-known for their drinking habits and the royal family is no exception.

Her Majesty herself, reports The Telegraph, likes a glass of gin mixed with Dubonnet – a fortified wine – garnished with a pip-free lemon slice. She also enjoys wine at lunchtime, and in the evening, champagne. Her husband Prince Philip, appreciates the simpler things in life – beer, Boddingtons in particular. How very English.

Prince Charles is reportedly a martini drinker – equal parts gin and dry vermouth, and The Duchess of Cornwall enjoys a classic gin and tonic.

Meanwhile, the younger Royals are apparently cocktail fans. Back in the day the Duke of Cambridge used to frequent Mayfair club Mahiki, where he would sip on Treasure Chests. The £135 ($188) cocktail is a mix of brandy and peach liqueur, shaken with sugar and lime, topped with a bottle of Moët and served in a wooden chest.

Meanwhile the Duchess of Cambridge is partial to Jack Daniels, and according to The Telegraph, her real favorite is a Crack Baby. It’s crack-free cocktail full of vodka, raspberry liquor, passion fruit and champagne.
