The Boy and his Poison: Mrs. Lilien's Cocktail Swatch Book

Setting the world to rights one lunchtime it suddenly dawned on me that what the world really needed was a cocktail guide and preferably one in the form of a swatch book. Colour coded, well designed and bound just like those classic Pantone swatch books. I was one phone call away from pestering a publisher before I found Mrs Lilen's Cocktail swatch book.

I'm usually seriously disgruntled when I find one of my ideas 'proto-plagiarised' but this one has been done so elegantly and at such a steal (its only £6) that I couldn't help recommend it. Kelley Lilien is an enviably talented designer that hacked together 20 recipes for blended cocktails, 20 recipes for shaken cocktails, and 10 recipes for punch bowls all in a perfect swatch book ready to be fanned out at a moments notice. If you have a cocktail-lover in your life it's a perfect gift and I was sold when I read about the incredible sounding Senorita Spin Beer-rita. Chuck it in your basket next time you make an Amazon order, trust me, your Olympic BBQ guests will thank you.

You can pick up Mrs. Lilien’s Cocktail Swatchbook from Amazon for £6
