Match your drink to your download for the best viewing experience.

During lockdown, we've all discovered the joys of streaming, catch-up, and box sets on TV. Coincidentally perhaps, some of us have also seen "wine o'clock" creeping ever earlier into the day. Why not make the most of both pleasures with this guide to what to drink as you watch. Try a Dirty Don martini to evoke the “Mad Men” era in Manhattan, or feast on a Blood and Sand while catching up with "Big Little Lies". Watch Scandi noir thrillers with a Danish Bloody Mary, or accompany "The Crown" with the Queen's favourite tipple, a Gin & It. "Say Yes to the Dress" demands a glass of Something Blue, while a Red Wedding Blood Martini is the perfect way to warm yourself when "winter is coming." With these recipes for 50 cocktails and mixes, you can easily match your tipple to your TV favorites. Cheers!
