FRED’S TOP TIPS

House Beautiful (UK) - - PARTY TIME -

It’s all about the right in­gre­di­ents, the tools of the trade and stylish pre­sen­ta­tion…

1 Buy fresh lemons and limes and squeeze your own juice. Con­cen­trated juice lacks the in­ten­sity of flavour.

2 In­vest­ing in a good spirit mea­sure is vi­tal as it’ll help you get the bal­ance of each cocktail just right.

3 Al­ways use ice. If you’re hav­ing a party, buy a few bags in ad­vance so you don’t run out.

4 In­vest in some nice glass­ware that will work for more than one drink. Cut-crys­tal rocks glasses are ver­sa­tile.

May­fair mar­tini glass, £24 for two; de­canter, £23; both Nep­tune
