Sherry is no longer hiding at the back of the drinks cabinet, waiting for Grandma at Christmas. Brindisa Kitchens are offering a selection of true Spanish sherries, available for £9. Social Wine & Tapas has also created two new cocktails, just for this week. An Old Fashioned with a sherry and coffee twist as well as a Negroni. Lots more restaurants around the country are embracing this, so take a look at Sherry Wine's UK Twitter for more info. sherry.wine

Food on wheels – aka skateplates
Yes, you heard us right. Skateplates are essentially a plate/deck made of porcelain with wheels attached. They are easily customised and could be a really fun idea for your next party. Hopefully they have brakes so when you're trying to cut that steak it doesn't end up on the lap of the person next to you! For more info, visit creativechef.co
