Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this Press Release.

With the nation gearing up for the second royal wedding of the year this weekend, RC® cola has commissioned a bespoke cocktail to celebrate the occasion.

Created by expert mixologist Alastair Tatton, the cocktail brings together elements of Zara Phillips' and Mike Tindall's life and wedding to create a blend that is uniquely theirs.

Sundeep Gill, assistant brand manager for Cott Beverages Ltd. which launched RC® cola in the UK, said: "as we've already seen, nothing captures the nation's heart more than a royal wedding, and with the royal crown link in the name, we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate the event, whilst paying tribute to the happy couple!

"In addition to RC® cola, the Royal Crown® Cocktail pays homage to where the couple are getting married, their pre-wedding celebrations and things close to their heart."

For those who want to have a go at recreating the Royal Crown® Cocktail, just follow Alastair's step-by-step guide below.
