To give a short history lesson. Over four hundred years ago Guy Fawkes attempted to blow up King James, (the 1st,) during the opening ceremonies at the House of Parliament in London. His plot was foiled.

He was arrested, taken to the tower of London, tortured and stretched on the rack. He was then hung, drawn and quartered and his decapitated head was displayed for all of London to see on traitors gate.

Today, every year in Britain, the 5th of November is celebrated with fireworks, bonfires and parties to commemorate this event in history

These are some of the most popular Burns Night or Bonfire Night cocktail drinks recipes.
