I feel like all rules fly out of the window on Bank Holiday, "Don't Drink to much" - pass me the cocktail. "Eat healthy" - no thanks! "Save some money by staying in" - not a chance! "Go to the gym whilst you have some extra time" - I don't think I even need to explain that one....
One thing I do know about Bank Holidays, is that I BLOODY love them! I have teamed up with Ideal World to bring you my pointers to have a fab one, and also tell you all about an exclusive offer they have running over the long weekend! Join the fun with Ideal World...
Here are a few things you need if you really want to make your Bank holiday POPPPIINNN'
COCKTAILS - because, well just because!
Who doesn't love a cocktail! I bloody do. I thought I'd share with you my recipe for my all time FAVE, for now I will call it the "As You Wish" Cocktail, because frankly I can't think of anything else. (I have to give a special shout out to my bestest friend Lucy for this one, because we created it together, and she won't be happy if I don't give her some credit!)
The "As You Wish" Cocktail
- PINEAPPLE JUICE
- MIDORI MELON LIQUOR
- SUGAR SYRUP
- ICE ICE BABY
To be honest I don't have a clue when it comes to measures - we just tend to whack it all in and hope for the best. But to make it super simple, per glass you would want approx, 1 shot malibu, 1 shot midori, 1/2 shot sugar syrup & topped alllll the way up with the pineapple juice. You can add more/less sugar syrup dependent on how sweet you like them!

Of course I had to tie in some beauty in this post somewhere.

FOOD & FRIENDS!
Bank holiday wouldn't be bank holiday with out the two above, so grab your cocktail, invite a load of your friends round & get the party food going, It doesn't have to be anything fancy, infact at a party most people would much prefer Party Rings & Doughnuts over posh salmon rolls (Well I would anyway!) Take some inspo from pinterest, like below and see how you can make simple food look pretty damn good!
Why not also grab some childrens games like the hoopla below and spice it up a bit with some alcoholic forfeits! You like the sound of that already don't you!
