Cocktail of the Week: Cliveden House Royal Wedding

By Lauren Hill

The Royal Wedding Cliveden 66 Cocktail, Cliveden House

  • 250ml vodka
  • 125ml champagne
  • 250ml rose liqueur
  • 125ml Grand Marnier
  • 3-4 gold leaves

To create this cocktail, simply combine all of the ingredients in a mixing jug then pour the mixture into your individual cocktail glasses, before topping each one up with 125ml of champagne. You can sweeten them by adding a small brown sugar cube.

This cocktail recipe comes from the grand estate Meghan Markle will be staying at the night before the Royal Wedding, Cliveden House. Created to honor royal tradition as well as the bride herself, this cocktail is made with 24K gold leaf, inspired by Meghan’s Welsh gold wedding band, and rose liqueur that represents the white garden roses said to be in her bouquet. The drink is finished with champagne to mark the historic celebration in style.

This five-star country house hotel lies within the Berkshire countryside amid 376 acres of sprawling green lawns and ancient woodland. The luxurious rooms and suites of the Grade I listed stately home reflect the hotel’s illustrious past, each named after a prominent guest from its 350-year history – perhaps stay in the Rudyard Kipling Club Room or Prince of Wales Mansion House Parterre Suite.

Like Meghan, by staying here you could spend your time in the newly refurbished garden spa complete with outdoor listed Profumo pool, dine on the award-winning cuisine of chef André Garrett at the hotel’s fine dining restaurant and have afternoon tea in the historic house’s Great Hall.
