Queen's Jubilee Large Crystal Diamond

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

On her way to becoming history’s longest reigning female, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom is the second royal to reach the diamond jubilee.

The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee calls for a special toast of quintessential British flair with what we’re told at BourbonBlog.com that Port wine and gin are among Queen Elizabeth’s favorite libations.

Queen Elizabeth II’s full name is Elizabeth Alexandra Mary. As 2012 marks the 60th anniversary of her accession  to the thrones of seven countries, we invite you to toast with us in these cocktails and watch video from The Diamond Jubilee Buckingham Palace Concert below
