Russia has slammed the Queen for downing gin, wine and champagne every day in a 'fake news' propaganda blast against the UK.
Senator Aleksey Pushkov, an ally of President Vladimir Putin, said the monarch treats drinking like a "ceremony" while Prime Minster Theresa May has a brandy habit.
The politician claimed tell-tale mannerisms reveal the pair as 'unpleasant' heavy drinkers.
According to the Sun, Pushkov told Staterun TV: "Before dinner she [Her Majesty] drinks a cocktail made from gin and another based on wine, with ice and lemon.
"After the meal, she has a glass of wine with a bar of chocolate.
"She also drinks dry Martini. At the end of the day, she likes to drink cool champagne."
If Prince Charles were my kid and heir to the throne, I'd probably drink steadily too.
Wine expert Elina Denisover said the PM revealed her secret tipple by the way she cupped her glass - warming the contents, rather than holding the stem.Maybe she just feels it's more secure holding the stem, especially after several glasses
She said: "You will get drunk quicker and it is just not pleasant.
"It means that May got used to another kind of glass - for Cognac."
Senior Tory MP Bernard Jenkin said the 'absurd' comments were aimed at undermining Britain's claim Russia tried to kill ex-spy Sergei Skripal, 66, and Yulia Skripal, 33.
