The Queen’s Dubbonet Cocktail

This is a classic cocktail, and one of my absolute favourites! If you’re a gin lover and you haven’t tried this yet.... you need to make this right now! Get out your finest gin, some lemon and a bottle of Dubbonet...

This cocktail has been around for a long time, and is said to be a favourite of Queen Elizabeth II and the Queen Mother. Originally a twist on the classic gin martini, the Dubbonet cocktail replaces vermouth with Dubbonet, a sweet aperitif made from fortified wine and various spices.

This will make one cocktail


  • 1 1/2 shots of London dry gin

  • 1 1/2 shots Dubonnet Rouge

  • 1 wheel of lemon, and a tiny squeeze of juice

  • Ice


  • In your serving glass of choice, fill with ice (I prefer large whiskey ice cubes) and then add Dubonnet and gin. Give it a good stir until the glass is chilled and the drink is thoroughly mixed.

  • Squeeze the lemon to release some juice then drop it into the glass and enjoy!
