  • Gin Tonica

    David T. Smith

    Product Code: BGNRP
    Hardback
    Aromatic, refreshing, delicious and a feast for the eyes, the generously-sized and creatively garnished `gin tonica' Spanish-style drink is taking the cocktail world by storm. Spaniards love their gin and tonics. In Spain, the bartender doesn't ask you what you want to drink, he asks you how you want your gin and tonic prepared. This simplest of drinks - just gin, tonic, ice and a garnish - is now considered the national drink of Spain. The trend started in the north of Spain, in Basque country, where you can walk into a bar and upon ordering you are presented with a cart teeming with gin and tonic options to create your very own bespoke drink. A beautiful cocktail with a variety of herb and flower garnishes, a Spanish-style gin and tonic or `gin tonica', is made with a premium gin and the best quality tonic water, combined with bitters and various herbs, spices, flowers and fruits that will complement the botanicals of a specific gin. It is served over ice in an oversized balloon glass - the idea being that the shape enables the drinker to enjoy all the lovely aromas their drink gives off. For a cocktail with only two ingredients, the flavour potential is staggering! Making a gin tonica is an intricate process, sometimes taking a barman as long as 15 minutes to deliver the ideal drink. The ice has to be dense so that it melts slowly, the glass might be spritzed with a fine layer of citrus oil, chilled to perfection, with the tonic poured in delicately. No detail is ignored, the wait is part of the experience, and the result is absolutely delicious. Attention to detail and respect for the classic is what truly elevates the Spanish gin tonica above all others. With more gin brands and styles of tonic available than ever before, and 40 inspired recipes here to try at home, there has never been a better time to discover the joy of the gin tonica - saludos!

But what of all the letters that were just slightly too wacky, too off the wall, too politically incorrect, to make it for publication? Now the Telegraph gives their authors the stage at last: baffled, furious, occasionally paranoid, and from this hilarious selection of the best we can see that no, none them is alone...

    This book has no claims to be fun or more interesting... In fact, it's so boring it will send you to sleep. There's absolutely nothing that will stimulate the senses.

    It will afford you much sleep and copious amounts of pointless knowledge: from the intricate details of the Belgian political crisis from 2007-2011 to an overview of railway gauges, there's so much for you to absorb while you drift into the land of nod...

My son even tried reposting the same flyer, but still no mauling from Ben. Are we to conclude that our dog swings to the right? SIR - As a regular visitor to the UK, I have been fascinated by the spate of letters regarding the television viewing of assorted pets. They have reinforced my view that the British are quite, quite mad. Long may it be so. SIR - Following the recent results of the English cricket team in the World Cup, may I suggest a duck as the national bird for England? The venerable letterbox of the Daily Telegraph is host to a wealth of animal owners and observers. Not to be outdone on any subject, comes a menagerie of musings and meditations on a topic very close to their hearts. A collection including correspondence from dogs, notes about peacocks, admonitions on horse owners and scapegoats for cats. From the farmstead to the front room, big and small, feathered and furry can be found amidst these pages. How to gauge the political leanings of your terrier - there is a simple test for that. Useful pointers on subduing a disgruntled heffer that prove effective in urban and everyday environments as well. Whether you live with a labradoodle, spend your weekends twitching or simply watching the tortoises go by, here is the best assortment of animals as gathered by the readers of the Telegraph.

  • What Your Dog's Breed Says About You

    Product Code: BCVYI
    Hardback
    Have you noticed how some dogs look like their owners? Or that certain people are drawn to specific breeds - like curly haired people and Poodles? Do you question whether it's really worth the money to take your dog to the Paw Seasons groomers or struggle to believe that Tindog (Tinder for dogs) is really a thing? The answers to all these questions and more are revealed in What Your Dog's Breed Says About You. Contained within are 25 brilliant profiles of the most popular canine companions out there, using a series of character sketches to detail the quirks and foibles of each breed and its owner. Take the Golden Retriever, shedding endless hairs onto the sofas of posh families in waxed jackets across the western world. Or the hardheaded Dachshund, who will belligerently resist any efforts to be trained by its control-freak owner. Also included is a section on The Issues, which covers key topics common to all dogs and their owners, like whether your dog should be allowed to sleep on the bed with you, the politics of poo, pampering your pooch and the ultimate dog diet. Finally, there's a fun quiz outlining the dog breed that you really should have.

  • Did Anyone Else See That Coming...?

    Iain Hollingshead

    Product Code: BKHTN
    Hardback
    New in the best-selling series of Unpublished Letters, this is a year in review made up of the wry and astute observations of the unpublished Telegraph letter writers. In a year in which even the most seasoned commentators have struggled to keep pace with the news cycle, letter writers to The Daily Telegraph have once again provided their refreshing take on events. Readers of the Telegraph Letters Page will be fondly aware of the eclectic combination of learned wisdom, wistful nostalgia and robust good sense that characterise its correspondence. But what of the 95% of the paper's huge postbag that never sees the light of day? Some of the best letters inevitably arrive too late for the 24/7 news cycle, or don't quite fit with the rest of the day's selection. Others are just a little too whimsical, or indeed too risque, to publish in a serious newspaper. And more than a few are completely and utterly (and wonderfully) mad. Thankfully Iain Hollingshead is on-hand to give the authors of the best unpublished letters the stage they so richly deserve. Baffled, furious, defiant, mischievous, they inveigh and speculate on every subject under the sun, from the rubbish on television these days to the venality of our MPs. With an agenda as enticing as ever the ninth book in the bestselling Unpublished Letters series will prove, once again, that the Telegraph's readers have an astute sense of what really matters.
