Step 1: Here's What You Need to Make a Guy Fawkes Martini

One chilled martini glass

One Shaker Cup with several cubes of ice

2 oz. Bombay Saphire gin

1 oz. Ginger Liquor

1 oz. Fresh squeezed orange juice

1 Maraschino Cherry

Step 2: Chill Your Glass!

You don't want to drop a nice cold drink into a warm glass, so be sure to start out by placing a martini glass into your freezer for at least 5 minutes, to get it nice and frosty cold!

Step 3: Get Your Shaker Cup Ready

You owe it to yourself to own a nice shaker cup. Get yours and then load it with several ice cubes.

Step 4: Add These Ingredients to the Shaker Cup

Pour into the shaker cup:

2 oz. Bombay Saphire Gin

1 oz. Ginger Liquor

1 oz. Fresh squeezed orange juice

Step 5: Now Shake It Up!

Put the cover on your shaker cup and give it a good shake for at least 30 seconds. Then remove your chilled martini glass from your freeze and carefully pour the drink into the glass. Drop one perfect maraschino cherry into the glass and you're done! You've made the perfect drink to celebrate Guy Fawkes Night on November 5.

Step 6: Now Make a Toast to Guy Fawkes

Although he did try to blow up Parliament, without Guy Fawkes men wouldn't be referred to as "Guys," since that's how the word entered the English language. So be sure to raise your glass in a toast to the first Guy!

"Remember, remember the 5th of November!"
