3 December 2011
Young people are responding to recession by dressing up and going out to enjoy expensive cocktails. There are many potential responses to global economic meltdown, but the New Gents, as they are known, may have got it right. If the situation really is as bad as all that, then at least we can go out in style, smiling and slightly less than sober. After all, that’s what our grandparents would have done…

In this supplement, The Spectator’s annual celebration of libation, Jeremy Clarke recalls pubs in simpler times, Charles MacLean celebrates the three-Martini lunch and Peter Grogan contemplates classics to be made at home. Jonathan Ray recommends his favourite gins, Victoria Moore deals with a wine delivery quandary whereas Pete Brown will be sticking to beer and cider over Christmas. Dave Broom proposes self-belief in matters of whisky, and a selection of hampers is reviewed.

Raise a glass to a prosperous 2012.
