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!
