For those who live in the UK or one of the commonwealth countries, you’d have to have been living in a cave not to be aware of the upcoming celebrations for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The 5th of June will see the whole of the UK partying in the streets, and what better way to celebrate than with a refreshing Courvoisier Cognac punch.  Perfect whether you’re joining in with one of the nation’s many street parties that are planned for the day, perhaps a private evening soiree or just fancy sipping cognac in one of its most refreshing forms.

Courvoisier very British

The combination of zesty fruits, Courvoisier VS and Angostura Bitters is easy to make, and can be made up by the glass or the bowl, as per the instructions below.  And being as it’s a unique day, then serve up your punch in a vessel of your choosing – and the more royal connotations, the better…

Whatever you have planned for the day of the Jubilee, enjoy.
