To be honest with you guys, I’m not terribly familiar with The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee (which takes place from June 2nd to June 5th) but if it’s an occasion worthy of a few cocktails then I’m all for it. So I of course did some Google-ing and according to the event is basically a celebration of  the Queen’s 60 years as Monarch. I’m sure they’ll be partying it up over the pond, but if you’d like to do a little celebrating of your own then I’m sure that either the “Princeton” or “The Garbo Mystique” cocktail will make for a great addition to your personal festivities.
