Bonfire night celebrations are back this year – and even better, they land on a Friday.

Family and friends will gather in gardens, fields and funfairs to watch displays as fireworks light up the skies. It’s as much a social event as it is a visual spectacle.

To sip on while you watch the sky fill with fireworks, why not try a sparkling cocktail?

While children enjoy toffee apples, adults can have something a little more exciting to look forward to.

From a spiced up Hot Chocolate to a Citrus Whiskey punch, Aldi have five cocktail recipes to try this November 5.
