Setting our sights on the long weekend and making the best of it, we polled some of our partners to give us some long weekend ‘must-haves’. The most important part of any celebration is to have fun, soak up the sun and make sure you enjoy responsibly –and don’t forget to be kind and considerate to all those working and getting us through everything.
Tip 1: Try Something New
The recommendation is Bud Light Strawberry Lemonade – the new summer favorite! Get the cooler filled with ice for the August long weekend and load it up with a variety of delicious Bud Light flavours. Whether by the lake, the pool, or just for a good time with friends, new to the Bud Light family is Bud Light Strawberry Lemonade. Available for a limited time this summer.
Tip 2: Always Have Pizza
Gabriel Pizza is always there when we need pizza. So here’s the reco… one Large Pizza with THREE Toppings – only $18.99! Don’t think about preparing dinner, just call Gabriel Pizza. Head to their website or download the App to start earning Pizza Perks – the more points you collect, the more free pizza you’ll get. This offer valid until August 3rd.
Tip 3: Find Paradise
That could be a beach, a backyard, a patio or… a drink. Yes, a drink. In this case Dandurand recos a Pink Paradise to keep the weekend vibes alive! This spin on the [yellow tail] Pink Bubbles ensures the summer holiday vibes keep going, no matter the weather.
- Using a scoop, add the raspberry sorbet into serving glasses of your choice. If you don’t have a scoop, simply measure out 1-2 tablespoons of the sorbet.
- Fill the glass with [yellow tail] Pink Bubbles and top with fresh raspberries and mint.
- Serve immediately!
