Does anyone still drink Dubonnet?

Other than HM the Queen.

My ex's mum (drinks Dubonnet, I mean; I'm not suggesting she's the queen).

Noilly Prat.

Advocaat.

Does anyone still drink them?

Funny you should ask that. I was watching an episode from the first series of Kojak last night in which a girl asked for a dubonnet. I thought that's something you don't hear these days.

Noilly Prat is rather good for cooking mackerel in, well, not in, but a splash is good.

My aunt. And my mum sometimes.

Isn't it Du bo, Du bon, Dubonnet?

HRH my Mum likes a drop of Campari.

I used to hate girls who wanted you to buy them a brandy and Babycham. They could have had 3 pints for the same price.

Dubon Dubonne Dubonnet!

You can almost never get it, now! I like it with soda.

Noilly Prat is also good in chicken gravy. Which means that I will often tipple in the kitchen, Floyd-style, while cooking the Sunday bird.

My dad likes Dubonnet - I'm not sure if he's got any at the moment, but he occasionally requests a bottle of it for a present. I think my mum (who is nothing like the Queen, apart from being old and called Elizabeth) only likes white wine.

I use Noilly Prat for cooking and put Advocaat on ice cream. I also had a recipe for a cake with Advocaat in it but I lost it.

What about cherry B?

'Cherry B, Cherry B, Cherry B....cherry B is the drink for me!'

The drink of choice for prim girlies in the 70s.

There was a huge range of overly sweet drinks in tiny bottles, possibly replaced by alcopops, Stingo, Merrydown etc. Bought by optimistic youths in the hope of getting a leg-over. More usually resulting in holding a girls hair while she worshipped the porcelain god.

I nearly commented that it was Dubonnet that Leonard Rossiter poured over Joan Collins’ poitrine, but just in time I remembered it was Cinzano.

People don't care much for Dubonnet these days.

Still lots of Dubonnet 'ghost signs' in France:
