Like many royals enthusiasts, I have been looking forward to season four of The Crown basically ever since season three ended. Somehow, this show just never fails to not live up to the sky-high expectations that legions of fans have for it, and season four is no exception. On Saturday, I got even more excited about my upcoming visual feast and decided to watch the entire season in one day, preferably while drinking something British and eating a lot of food.
After seeking counsel from Instagram, I arrived at a liquor store and promptly went rogue. While looking for something else entirely, I turned a corner and saw a bright pink bottle of strawberry gin that had a little British-looking dude on the label with the all-caps word LONDON etched into the glass side of the bottle, and y’all, it was like Princess Di herself moved through me. I picked up the bottle without any knowledge of what could possibly pair well with a bright pink bottle of gin but full of determination to have fun figuring it out.
I woke up bright and early at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, November 15, and decided to begin my foray into all things QE2 an hour later. And now I present to you the spoiler-free fruit of my labor!
