Remember, remember! The fifth of November, the gunpowder treason and plot; I know of no reason, why the gin should ever be forgot! Celebrate this bonfire night with FOUR and this recipe for ‘The Flame Haired Lady’ from Portobello Road Gin…

This is our own Bonfire Night take on that classic drink The White Lady. Here we have just sweetened it up a little and added some winter spice by the addition of gingerbread syrup.
