Bonfire Night Is Shaken & Stirred

Although Charlie the Chairman hates Bonfire Night… it’s the fireworks… Gecko loves a good Guy Fawkes party! So, to add some sparkle to the event, we asked our friend the expert mixologist at Shaken & Stirred to design a cocktail for Freixenet – and he created the Freixenet Guido.

The Freixenet Guido takes 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.

Ingredients
35ml American Whiskey
50 ml Sour cherry juice (available in most large supermarkets)
20ml Almond Syrup (maple syrup is a good alternative)
Squeeze lime
Freixenet Cordon Negro (the nation’s favourite sparkling wine brand)

Method
Simply 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

Its a fabulous long drink – we know because we tried it when Tom mixed it up for the photoshoot with our favourite photographer Martin Cleveland!

Strictly speaking…Only a week until we find out who will be dancing! Gecko recently worked with Brendan Cole and we discovered what a thoroughly decent guy he was – and learned a few dance steps too. So, of course we will be supporting Brendan in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing – but who will his partner be?

Shaken & Stirred Freixenet Rosado Alfresco

As the rain pours down in Berkshire, we thought we would share a great summery cocktail, which has been created by our friends (the expert mixologists) at Shaken and Stirred in Oxford.

The Freixenet Rosado Alfresco, is a short, bubbly cocktail marrying the botanicals of gin with the floral notes of elderflower and a squeeze of lime – and of course the sweeter more floral Freixenet Cordon Rosado.

Refreshing and fun on a sunny afternoon in the garden – or while having a picnic in the lounge over a wet bank holiday?!
