Cola bottle, skittles, rhubarb and custard and strawberry laces....they were admittedly hideously sickly but he's also a total drink snob wink

I've just bought a manual ice crusher and muddler for making mojitos - What about a herb like a mint plant?

Second Tiger

I know you said you had a book but in case you need another the Fever Tree book on Book People is lovely

How about ice cube bags, long stirrer things! Edible glitter for fancy stuff, salt for glass rims,

IHopeYouStepOnALegoPiece Wed 01-Nov-17 20:34:12

£43 on drinksstuff later 😳😳😳

The Fever Tree book is called the Art of Mixing and is hardback for £15 in Waterstones BUT it was either £5 or £5.99 on Book People - I have bought it for myself !

Under equipment they also suggest a tea strainer - £2 in tiger ! I'm. It even going to look on the website suggested upthread as I will be spending .....
