Top 10 new drinks books

Drink More Fizz! by Jonathan Ray, £14.99, published by Quadrille

Bon vivant, seasoned raconteur and an all round good sort, Johnny Ray has had the enviable job of glugging the world’s finest Champagnes and sparkling wines for his new book, Drink More Fizz!, which rounds up his top 100 sparklers.

Boasting a tasteful navy and gold Art Deco cover, this handsome looking book is filled with quotes on Champagne from everyone from Ernest Hemingway to Coco Chanel.

In addition to Ray’s top pics, which include usual suspects like Krug, Bollinger and Pol Roger, alongside the likes of Bellavista, Benjamin Bridge, Ridgeview and Inniskillin sparkling ice wine, the book includes recipes for classic Champagne and Prosecco-based cocktails, alongside mini features on glassware, sugar levels, sparkling wine and food matching, and bottle sizes.

Ray writes with humour and flair, and the book is as fun and frivolous as the fizz on its pages. The ideal stocking filler for the fizz fiend in your life.
