Cocktails aren’t just for fancy nights out and high-end mixologists. In Mr Lyan’s Cocktails at Home, Ryan Chetiyawardana (aka Mr Lyan, the man behind the award-winning Dandelyan and Lyaness bars in London and other venues in Washington DC and Amsterdam) shows how 70 innovative and exciting cocktails can be part of your get-togethers with friends, romantic evenings, or post-workday ritual.

Easy to make and beautifully photographed, the cocktails cover every mood and occasion, from sunny day drinks and winter warmers, to Friday night cocktails and morning revivers. Ryan perfects classics like the Old Fashioned and the Manhattan, and experiments with new, intriguing combinations, and exciting ingredients. In this second edition 9 additional cocktails, newly created by Ryan, provide even more inspiration.
