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.

Pimms Original

You don't get more English than this!

Makes: 1 litre (serves 4)

4 cups ice cubes
1 lemon, cut into thin slices
160ml Pimm's No. 1
125ml lemonade, chilled
125ml ginger ale, chilled
1/2 Lebanese cucumber, cut into thin strips

1 - Place 1/2 the ice into a 1-litre capacity jug. Add lemon slices. Pour in Pimm's, followed by lemonade and ginger ale. Stir with a swizzle stick to combine.
