Celebrate The Queen’s Jubilee With Our Sparkling Teas

With the Queen’s Jubilee right around the corner, it seems like the perfect time to celebrate the long, upcoming weekend. With all the parties that may be taking place, it’s important to come prepared and armed with some of your absolute favourite beverages – including some mouth-watering non-alcoholic cocktail recipes. In this article, we will be looking at what the Queen’s Jubilee is, how to celebrate it, and the ideal mocktail for the occasion

What is the Queen’s Jubilee?

This year the Queen is celebrating her Platinum Jubilee, which marks her 70 years of service to the United Kingdom. Over the bank holiday weekend, from the 2nd to the  5th of June, many people will come together and throw street parties with their local communities to celebrate this momentous occasion. Queen Elizabeth II will actually be the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee;   the previous longest-reigning British monarch was Queen Victoria who celebrated her 60 years of reign with a Diamond Jubilee.

How To Celebrate This Year

To celebrate this year in style, we are being treated to a bank holiday weekend which will provide us all an opportunity to commemorate this historic milestone together. Four days full of celebrations will take place between Thursday 2nd and Sunday 5th of June, including many public events and community activities, focused on reflecting on the Queen’s 70th year in reign. 

Low or No Alcohol

For many, this is a chance to bring together friends and family, but also to celebrate with the wider community. One of the most traditional ways to honour this event is to have a tea or street party. A street party typically consists of getting together with the people that live nearest to you all gathering to celebrate and eat together. Generally, everyone brings their own dishes and shares them all together in one big meal.  The type of food brought usually focuses on quintessentially British treats such as sandwiches and tea – hence why some people refer to it as a tea party.

Now, if you aren’t a massive Earl Grey or English Breakfast Tea fan, you may be looking for a bit of a different drink to bring to the affair. We recommend a bottle of REAL which is still technically tea, but with a few bubbles! You can skip the prosecco and opt for a healthier, less hangover-inducing drink. Not to mention, our Royal Flush is perfect as it’s technically royalty itself!

A Mocktail For The Occasion

With our Royal Flush sparkling tea in mind, we recommend something suitably regal for this occasion. Of course, our Royal Bellini is the perfect addition to any street party or celebration taking place to commemorate the Queen’s Jubilee this year. 

To make our mouth-watering Royal Bellini, you will need: 

  • 125ml REAL Royal Flush
  • 20ml peach purée
  • 5ml jasmine syrup
  • Edible flowers to garnish

To create this delicious drink, simply: 

  • Pour your peach purée and jasmine syrup into chilled wine or cocktail glasses.
  • Top up with REAL Royal Flush and stir gently to bring the liquids and flavours together.
  • Garnish with edible flowers.

Serve this to everyone at the party and wow the other attendees with your ability to put a spin on a truly British drink – tea!
