What fun would an adult sleepover party be without delicious snacks and lots of booze? And for a Royal Sleepover, the nibbles and cocktails clearly have to be British-themed. So we pulled together a few appropriate menu suggestions courtesy of epicurious.com and chef Darren McGrady, author of Eating Royally (Thomas Nelson, 2007) and former private chef to Princess Diana.
