Inner Nigella: Our favourite tea cup cocktails | recipes  pictures There's something fantastically classy slash naughty about tea-cup cocktails. Especially when paired with a group of your favourite girlies, a tiara or two and perhaps the live telecast of the Royal Wedding (don't even pretend you're not going to watch it!).

Here are our favourite regal themed tipples to kick off the festivities, tea-pots not included.
