The Ivy’s exclusive Christmas Carol Old Fashioned: £15, 1-31 December.

The Ivy’s bar team has reinvented a classic cocktail for Christmas to exemplify this true melange of past, present and future – the “Christmas Carol Old Fashioned”. Mirroring Dickens’s exploration of Christmas traditions from the past to the future, the cocktail will incorporate the Spirit of Christmas Past – a 1970s vintage bottle of Chivas Regal 12 year old; the spirit of Christmas Present – a current Chivas Regal 12 year old; and the spirit of Christmas Future – a Strathisla single malt, which will be the base for a future Chivas Regal blend. Scottish heather honey, bitters and a flamed orange twist will be added to the 3 whiskies to create the “Christmas Carol Old Fashioned”. Served in a Flower of Scotland crystal “old fashioned” glass, the cocktail will be poured over a piece of pure carved ice.

The Mount Street Deli Christmas Produce: £13.50-120, available from 7-18 December.

Christmas is a busy time of year so why not enjoy hassle-free restaurant food in the comfort of your own home? Treat yourself to Scott’s home-cured gravadlax with fresh dill dressing, 34 Mayfair’s beef Wellington and slow-baked cheesecake with mandarins and mandarin syrup, as well as The Ivy’s mince pies.

48 hours’ notice is required for delivery of a dinner party dish and all orders should be placed by 6pm to ensure the full two days. Dishes can either be picked up from the deli or delivered free of charge within W1; there is a courier charge for further afield (and within central London only)
