Put on your comfy pants and grab the best seat in the house. Santa can’t come down the chimney until you have seen at least 3 of these seasonal film favorites. To put you in the holiday spirit(s), we’ve crafted some holiday cocktails to pair with these Christmas movie classics.
Note: You may substitute any of the following with White Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, Scrooged or Home Alone. You may NOT substitute for Hallmark movies. Seriously, I get it, but don’t.
