The Queen Apparently Has Four Cocktails Every Day

And she starts before lunch, too.

Queen Elizabeth II has ruled the United Kingdom for decades. Not only does she have staying power on the throne, but the 91-year-old can also hold her liquor. Despite her busy schedule, the monarch always has time for a cocktail—four per day, to be precise.

Business Insider rounded up reports of what the Queen eats and drinks per day, and her drinking regimen is seriously impressive. Before lunch, she enjoys a gin and Dubonnet cocktail with lemon and ice.

The Independent reports that she enjoys a glass of wine at lunch alongside her food, which is usually healthy and simple—but also includes a piece of chocolate for dessert.


In the evenings, she is known to have a dry martini, though no word on whether she prefers it shaken or stirred. And she finishes her day with a glass of Champagne, often from brands like Bollinger, Lanson, and King.


The Queen’s cousin, Margaret Rhodes, told The Independent her drink preferences never change. But other liquor brands are on offer at Buckingham Palace. PopSugar notes that there are royal warrants (marks of recognition that mean the Queen has ordered the product over the last five years) for Gordon’s gin, Pimm’s, Bacardi, and Bulmers cider.

That said, she’s apparently not a beer person; she turned down a pint of Guinness while touring the factory in Dublin.
