Bonfire night is one of my favourite events of the year. The myriad colours lighting up the sky is so beautiful, but there is one down side: the cold. Hats and scarves only go so far when you’’re spending an evening in the British outdoors in November, which is why you’’ll need a Guy Fawkstail to keep you warm.

Sip this delicious hot cocktail while you’’re standing by the fire and you’’ll forget all about the nippy weather.

here's what you'll need...

  • 400mls vanilla chai tea, without milk
  • 50mls of whisky
  • 50mls of amaretto
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar

have you seen...

here's how it's done...

  • 1

    Boil the kettle and using just one vanilla chai teabag, make 400mls of tea.


  • 2

    Pour the tea into a jug, add the whisky and amaretto and mix well.


  • 3

    Add a teaspoon of sugar to the cocktail and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Now pour the liquid into a flask.


  • 4

    The natural spices in the tea work really well with the whisky and amaretto. This is a lovely warming drink, which isn’’t overtly strong in flavour, but will take the edge off a cold Bonfire night.


    And remember to pack some marshmallows. This cocktail tastes even better with a toasted marshmallow on the side.
