The origin of the colour “Royal Blue” can be dated back to the time of the seventeenth and eighteenth Century, where King George III (1760 – 1820) tested clothiers across the country to deliver a shading suitable for utilization by Royalty.
A factory called Scutts Bridge in Rode, where fabric for the imperial attires was at that point being made, created the triumphant colour for the King so as to the shade which was judged George himself. It was an extremely rich blue, which got to be known as ‘The Royal Blue’.
The triumphant shading was chosen for a robe for Queen Charlotte and King William IV (1830 – 1837) gave an authentication approving its deal by that name.
Royal Blue is also a favourite of modern nobility including Princess Kate.
This gem of a cocktail has a hint of citrus flavor, while also providing a jewel-inspired color tone. It’s a cousin of the Cosmopolitan but with deeper colour, flavour and that oh-so delightful sugary rim.
It comes from the kitchen of Betty Crocker herself, so it must be the real thing.
