1. Cocktail Pastilles, £9.99.

Not only are these cocktail pastilles delicious, a box of six is equivalent to three shots. The perfect way to start getting surreptitiously sloshed on Christmas morning. No one will suspect a thing.

FYI, the whisky and amaretto pastille and the elderflower and gin pastilles are the best ones.

2. "The Periodic Table of Cocktails", £9.99.

Gin Monkey

I was given this last year as a Christmas present, and can confirm it is a great book for cocktail lovers. 106 recipes, arranged in impeccable order, and smattered with drinks history and stories from Gin Monkey, the drinks connoisseur behind the book.


10. "Mixing In The Right Circles", £20.

Brian Silva, head bartender at Balthazar, has just launched the new Balthazar cocktail book on the art of mixing. Brian is something of a legend in cocktail drinking circles, and his book is a wonderful combination of both his booze stories and his boozy recipes.


19. Mixology Cocktail Candles, £19.


22. "Cocktail Cookbook", £14.

This book makes a great coffee table piece alone, because the pictures in it are BEAUTIFUL.

It's also perfect for any cocktail aficionados who've mastered the classics, and want to start experimenting: this book features 75 recipes grouped by flavour, i.e. pear, strawberry, shiso and pea shoots.


24. Cocktail Coasters, £4.50.

25. Cocktail Making Kit, £29.

This set includes all you need to make two types of cocktails (and three servings of each one): a salt caramel Old-Fashioned and a daiquiri.
