Cocktails for Bonfire Night

ByThe Cocktail Lovers



Freixenet Guido

According to the weather man, it’s going to be cold and wet for Bonfire Night. So what’s new? We say don’t be a damp squib, keep warm by mixing up a few cocktails to enjoy in or outdoors…

Freixenet Guido

Taking its inspiration from Guy (nicknamed Guido) Fawkes – the man who became synonymous with the Gunpowder Plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament and kill King James I, the Freixenet Guido is perfect to serve up on Bonfire Night.

35ml American Whiskey
50 ml sour cherry juice
20ml almond Syrup (maple syrup is a good alternative)
Squeeze lime
Freixenet Cordon Negro

Put the first four ingredients in a highball glass and stir. Add ice and top with Freixenet Cordon Negro, then garnish with a black cherry.

Daiquiroski Wheel

Daiquiroski Wheel

A sweet and sour alternative to the traditional Firework’s Night Catherine Wheel, the Daiquiroski takes inspiration from the explosive Cuban nightlife.

45ml Russian Standard vodka
Juice from half a lime
1 tsp sugar

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Sweet Standard Sparkler
