Originally an un-garnished cocktail from the 1930's, the Dubonnet Cocktail is now often served with a twist of lemon and sometimes an orange peel. 

The Dubonnet Cocktail is said to be a favorite of Queen Elizabeth II and her mother, who preferred it served on the rocks. It has fallen into obscurity in recent years.

This cocktail is also known as a Zaza.
