Know what’s fun? Tweed jackets and gin and tonics. Know what’s even more fun? Justifying both with The Preppy Cookbook, a fun little tome of homestyle classics, party snacks, better bar food and the cocktails you need to know how to make if you’re going to wear that ascot all over the place. First up, a spiked shrimp cocktail that’s even more addictive than it sounds!

With its unique texture from the pear, coupled with the blue cheese, this sandwich offers a hint of autumn and is a nice nibble while watching the game.
