For the last six years Harrison has sat as a judge for the International Wine and Spirits Challenge (IWSC) where today he holds the role of a Trophy Judge and Chairman across Scotch whisky and spirits. These simple-yet-delicious cocktails are divided into three chapters: No Shake, Sherlock – the easiest to make, requiring little or no preparation, and using standard spirits and mixers; Shake It Up – slightly more complex concoctions that need a quick shake or stir; and Magnificent Mixes – special drinks for the more decadent drinking occasions which require a little more prep, or an unusual ingredient here and there. Simon RimmerThe trend of cocktail making at home is set to deny now that so many of us appreciate how a delicious cocktail can make any evening special, and it really does not have to be time consuming. We've always been very passionate about the idea that people can make cocktails quickly and simply—and also quite cheaply—but quite often they choose to open a bottle of wine or a can of beer. The slightly more ambitious ‘Shake it up’ chapter covers cocktails that require a touch more effort and equipment – but still remain simple.

As well as writing for a number of different publications around the world, such as the Telegraph and World of Fine Wine, they also appear regularly on TV and act as judges for the prestigious International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) awards. These simple-yet-delicious cocktails are divided into three chapters: No Shake, Sherlock - the easiest to make, requiring little or no preparation, and using standard spirits and mixers; Shake It Up - slightly more complex concoctions that need a quick shake or stir; and Magnificent Mixes - special drinks for the more decadent drinking occasions which require a little more prep, or an unusual ingredient here and there. These simple-yet-delicious cocktails are divided into three chapters: No Shake, Sherlock - the easiest to make, requiring little or no preparation, and using standard spirits and mixers; Shaker Maker - slightly more complex concoctions that need a quick shake or stir; and Dress To Impress - special drinks for the more decadent drinking occasions which require a little more prep, or an unusual ingredient here and there. The publisher of this book provided free copies of the book to have their book reviewed by a professional reviewer.The authors divide their 60-second concoctions into three groups (“No Shake Sherlock,” “Shake It Up,” and “Magnificent Mixes”) and color code the libations for selecting based on mood, flavor, or occasion. A hot buttered rum is smoothed out with “nutty, indulgent” melted peanut butter, while the espresso martini is transformed into a rum-based mocha martini with a spoonful of chocolate hazelnut spread. His third book, Straight Up, co-authored with Harrison has taken him around the world exploring over 500 of the world’s greatest drinking experiences, from award-winning US craft distilleries to some of Japan’s finest drinking establishments and boutique cocktail bars.

In a fresh twist on the cosmopolitan, cranberry juice is switched out with fresh-squeezed orange and lemon juice, while the traditional old-fashioned leans sweet and smoky thanks to the addition of maple syrup. It plays very much on the aperitivo hour – that superbly chilled time where you take a moment to enliven the senses before dinner, truly waking up the taste buds. The Firecracker Margarita tastefully elevates the dry and juicy flavours of a classic Margarita with a kick of chilli, while the herbal tones of a Gibson are balanced out using the smooth earthy notes of a few drops of olive oil. Get ready to wow your guests with classic cocktails and contemporary innovations, all shaken, stirred, or otherwise concocted in around a minute.Here, the pair share three Christmassy cocktail recipes direct from the book, fit for the festivities ahead.
