The New Year season to be jolly and high-spirited is here. Why not look the part, too?

The high-flying Scotsman: If scotch is your drink of choice, you don’t have to be fitted out in a kilt to look Scottish. But take cues from the region, and outfit yourself with a bespoke suit in a nice tweed or tartan and pair it a stylish pair of brogues. It wouldn’t hurt to get a golf cap to go with the look.

New Year Dress

Shaken or stirred: Few drinks enjoy the iconic status that a Martini occupies in a Bond film. Make it a Vesper Martini. Bond himself gives out the recipe for this in the book Casino Royale: Three measures of Gordon's, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it's ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel. He later names it Vesper. So, pull on that perfectly-cut Savile Row suit and play Bond while you enjoy your Martini.

New Year Best Food

That’s rum: Is aged rum your favourite quaff – in a Cuba Libre or just like that, on ice? It’s the drink of seafaring adventurers, too. Let the irrepressible Johnny Depp in the ‘Pirates’ series be your style standard for this one. And don’t forget the eye patch.

Rock it: Fine Tennessee whisky is for rock stars and biking fiends who enjoy rough terrain. To slip into the mood to savour this drink, go for those jeans, leather jackets and jangling chains. You’ve got to wear your swag, too.

Say that in Russian: Remember the Jeff Bridges character, The Dude, in the cult movie, the Big Lebowski? He spends most of his time sipping White Russians – coffee liqueur Smirnoff vodka and milk – or dreaming of drinking these.  To savour this warming drink, get the look and it’s easy -- long hair, shaggy sweater, dark glasses and glass of White Russian in hand.
