How to Drink at Christmas

Victoria Moore

Which champagne should you pour at your Christmas party? How do you make a Sidecar or a Clementine Campari? Which will warm you up best after a frosty walk: spiced apple juice, spiced coffee, or hot buttered rum? Which wines work best with Christmas dinner? The author of the delightful and hugely successful How to Drink here tells you how to drink in the season of dark and chill (Swedish glogg), parties (sloe gin fizz, anyone?) and runny noses (an invigorating rosemary infusion or hot honey and lemon). Celebratory and warming, How to Drink at Christmas is a must for the festive season.

Completely marvellous and I couldn't recommend it more highly... it's so well written that, like the best cook books, it's bliss to read while hunkered up in bed... the perfect Christmas present

India Knight

She takes us on a well-mannered romp from breakfast to midnight, from spring to winter, from black tea to tequila ... How to Drink is a rich mine of such information, and no kitchen should be without it

John Graham, Tatler

I loved How to Drink: for the first time in years I have broken open a bottle of vodka for a bloody Mary, remembered how much better mulled cider is than mulled wine, drawn a fresh kettle for tea. It is a splendid and convincing argument not just to drink more but to drink better

Joanna Weinberg, author of FEED YOUR FRIENDS WITH RELISH
