(CBS News) Britain is marking Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee this weekend with four-days of festivities, including a 1,000-boat parade down the River Thames, and a concert with fireworks at Buckingham Palace.
But you don't have to be in London to celebrate the monarch's 60-year reign. You can throw a own party at home, no matter which side of the pond you're on.
Beefeater Gin has teamed up with mixologists Nick Strangeway and Dre Masso to create cocktails and punches celebrating the queen and her jubilee milestone.
The English gin also makes an appearance in a trio of cocktail recipes provided by Tabasco, which provided recipes for some U.K.-inspired snacks that can be made by those planning their own Diamond Jubilee soirees.
