While many aspects of the queen’s daily life are inimitable for us lowly citizens, there is one very simple way for us all to be a little more royal: by getting sloshed. A report published by The Independent details the queen’s drinking habits. According to her late cousin, Margaret Rhodes, Queen Elizabeth II has a daily alcohol routine that “never varies.” Here’s how to drink just like The Queen (note: if you have, like, a full-time job, this might not be the drinking routine for you).
While drinking in the morning is sometimes frowned upon, The Queen’s alcohol intake begins just before lunch. Start the day right with a gin and Dubonnet garnished with a slice of lemon and lots of ice. If you happened to have skipped breakfast, this cocktail will provide an extra kick!
With lunch, drink wine. That’s all the information we’re given, so drink as much as you want! The Queen probably drinks a fancy bottle, but feel free to go boxed or make your own in a bathtub.
In the evening, start with a dry martini. You might want to eat something first, lest you get totally wasted. The queen likes tuna sandwiches with the crusts removed, so perhaps indulge in one of those. Finish the day with a glass of champagne.
And there you have it, how to drink like a royal! Please note that according to the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, the queen is categorized as a “binge drinker.”
