Specialists in 'cocktail counselling and menu creation'; the duo has crafted more than 60 eye-catching cocktails to help drinks lovers "recreate the magic of the bar at home".

Published by Hardie Grant UK, the synopsis reads: "Cocktails were first created as medicinal tonics, and today the best drinks still have the power to soothe and restore. In Doctor's Orders, you'll find classic cocktails and new concoctions to cure whatever ails you, whether it's a broken heart or just a serious case of the Mondays. "Chris Edwards and Dave Tregenza prescribe restorative elixirs such as the Apple a Day and delicious potions like the Jungle Fever. Make a visit to the Peach Therapist, give yourself some Thirst Aid, and remedy any hangover with Tiger's Milk, a twist on the tried and true Bloody Mary.
