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, we get it, but don’t.
