Tom Hanks Left Stunned After The Queen Revealed Her Favourite Cocktail

Appearing on Monday’s The
One Show, the Hollywood star was quizzed about meeting Her Majesty at a
special dinner held in honour of former US President Barack Obama and
his wife, Michelle.

“Big week for us in the
UK as you’ll probably know it’s the Platinum Jubilee celebrations,” host
Emma Willis asked the Castaway actor. “Tom, I believe you have actually
had dinner with the Queen? I was dressed up very nicely,” remembered Tom.
“The chit chat with the Queen is something you’ve got to get ready for. I
knew I was going to be sat next to her and so I wanted to be able to talk about
things that were of importance but not presumptuous.

“Then out of the corner
of my eye, I just saw this white-gloved hand put between me and Her Majesty
this glass of water. But it wasn’t in a water glass.”

Upon seeing the clear liquid,
the American star “dared” to ask: “What is Your Majesty’s
cocktail of choice?” To which, the royal replied: “Ooh,

Tom, who is soon set to star
in Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis, then shared: “She had the one, that’s
what she nursed throughout the course of the night. I think, well, she’s
had a wonderful reign so maybe if I were to polish up my game a bit I’ll start
to drink martinis.”

The Queen is known to enjoy a
tipple, particularly, the ‘Zaza’ cocktail – otherwise known as a Gin and
Dubonnet. According to former royal chef Darren McGrady, who worked for the
royal family for 15 years, the glamorous French aperitif is her absolute
“favourite drink”.

There is a sweet tradition
behind her choice of tipple, since the drink is said to have been a favourite
of the Queen Mother’s, too.
