Top 10 new drinks books

The Cocktail Guy by Rich Woods, £16.99, published by Pavilion 

One of the most original, creative and affable bartenders around, Rich Woods, head of drinks development for Duck & Waffle and Sushisamba, has released his own tome that encourages cocktail lovers to try their hand at homemade sips.

The beautifully illustrated book is packed with 70 different recipes of Woods classics with a few newbies thrown in for good measure. Inside, Woods details his own personal approach to flavour navigating readers through the often complex world of infusing and distilling your own ingredients.

Suited to both absolute beginners and cocktail connoisseurs, this guide to modern cocktail making, will, according to Woods, “engage your senses and ignite your creative desire”. He’s an encouraging mentor, insisting that “there is no such thing as failure – each misstep is another move forward on the path to success.”

Among the quirky cocktail recipes are a Pine Needle Aperol Spritz, Celery Gimlet, Milky Bar Snowball, Clarified Bloody Mary and Truffled Negroni.
