On April 18, William & Kate, the Lifetime movie about a wedding that hasn’t even happened yet, will premiere in both the United States and Britain. So what are you going to do about it? Drink, of course! In celebration, our friends at HowAboutWe have come up with a commemorative drinking game to be reserved specifically for this occasion. Highlights include:
Anytime Kate cries, take a sympathy sip.
If the Queen comes onscreen, stand up and take a drink.
Anytime Harry comes onscreen and completely upstages his brother, take a shot, cause at least they made something accurate.
When William gets down on one knee and proposes to Kate with his mother’s ring, drink all the remaining alcohol and despair because that will never happen to you and you will never be a princess.
HowAboutWe did such a magnificent job with the rules of the game that we’re not really sure we can top them. However, we CAN offer a few fortifying cocktails to add to the two that HowAboutWe suggests. In addition to the Princess Kate Fizz and the Belvedere Vodka Wedding Punch, why not add one of these into the mix?:
Colour Me Royal:
3/4 oz (22 mL) Tanqueray Dry Gin
1/2 oz (15 mL) Maraschino Liqueur
1/2 oz (15 mL) fresh lemon juice
1 bar spoon Blue Curacao
Shake all ingredients (except Blue Curacao) hard and strain into chilled martini glass. Slowly pour Blue Curacao down the inside of the glass to lie at the bottom.
2 oz Chambord Flavored Vodka
3/4 oz simple syrup
3 slices of cucumber (skin on)
3 fresh raspberries
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
Muddle the raspberries, cucumber, and simple syrup. Add to a shaker with lemon juice and Chambord Flavored Vodka. Add ice and shake vigorously. Double stain into a martini glass or a large coupe glass and garnish with raspberries.
1.5 oz No. 3 gin
.75 oz elderflower liqueur
1 oz ruby grapefruit juice
.5 oz lemon juice
A float of sparkling wine
Shake & serve up.
