How to Celebrate the Carnival Weekend at Home August 4, 2021
Summer is in full flow and we bet you’ve been enjoying time with friends and family at home or on a staycation. But the events that really makes us all want to get up and dance are of course the carnivals that happen in August. Here’s how to recreate them at home…
Grab a cuppa and take a look at our hot tips.
Bring on the BBQ
Fancy a sizzling taste of the Caribbean? Then fire up the coals and take a look at our Caribbean inspired BBQ recipe. Packed full of succulent meats and sides with a spicy twist, it’s just the ticket for a carnival-inspired feast.
Get all spiced up
Treat friends and family to food with a kick by indulging in one of our limited-edition Frank’s RedHot dishes, like a Frank’s RedHot Dog with Cheesy Paprika Chips, Frank’s Sizzling Chicken Salad, or a spicy kicking Chicken Burger with Spicy Wedges. Or turn up the heat with our Cauli Mac ‘n’ Cheese with Blue Cheese crumb. Pick one, or try them all!
Make a costume
One of the great things about the carnival is the parade and its exotic, colourful costumes, so what better way to get into the mood, than making sure you’re all dressed for the occasion. Grab your craft kit and get sticking – think glitter, feathers and of course masks – pst, if you have little ones in tow, this is a great distraction to keep them busy while you prep the food.
Pack your playlist full of tunes that will get you in the mood. We’re thinking, steel drums and reggae beats. Feeling brave? Get the kids involved by giving them their own instruments to bang – from maracas to kazoos, anything goes.
Nothing brings home the taste of the Caribbean more than rum, whether that’s in a cocktail or with a mixer or try our Best Gin & Tonic Recipe With A Tropical Twist. Looking for something non-alcoholic? You can’t go wrong with coconut water or juice to really make your day pop.
And finally, sit back, relax and enjoy all the vibes that these carnivals are so well known for, all from the comfort of your home.
