Want to drink like the Queen? Grab the gin!

It's been well documented that Queen Elizabeth II loves gin, but we had no idea how much! 

Queen Elizabeth II of England

Food and Wine uncovered that the 91-year-old reportedly drinks four cocktails a day! And why not? If we were the Queen of England, we would too. 

According to former royal chef, Darren McGrady, her first drink is a gin and Dubonnet, with a slice of lemon and lots of ice which is enjoyed just before lunch. Very posh. 

Then, after she's finished eating lunch, she’ll have a piece of chocolate and a glass of wine. We are never ending lunch without a glass of wine and piece of chocolate ever again. 

Not long after, the Queen has a dry gin martini (stirred, the correct way), according to her cousin Margaret Rhodes. That makes 3 alcoholic beverages by around 2 o'clock!

Then to finish off the day, a glass of Champagne before going to sleep! What else? Doesn't everyone end their day with some fizz?

This works out at around six units a day, or 42 units a week - a whopping 28 units over the UK recommended amount of no more than 14 units weekly. If this is correct, according to guidelines, she is deemed a binge drinker! 

But who knows, maybe three drinks by the afternoon and some bedtime bubbly is the key to success and longevity and happiness?
