For this special holiday post the Celebrate Everyday Team collaborated to bring you our favorite merry movies (no judgements please, hehehe) and the cocktails we thought would perfectly pair with our film choices. We are confident that your holiday needs will be met with one of our film/boozy combos. Enjoy!
If you are in mood for a good old-fashioned holiday classic, it is time for a little Bing Crosby in White Christmas and perhaps a touch of Miracle on 34th Street. Then be sure to toast to snow, sisters and Santa with White Christmas Dreams
JINGLE AND LAUGHING ALL THE WAY
In the mood for a holiday chuckle? Check out Elf and Home Alone. If you and your friends don’t die from laughter or too much maple syrup, shake up Happy Elf Cocktails for everyone to enjoy.
FEELING LIKE A KID AGAIN
If your are feeling nostaligic for your childhood? Mix up Peppermint Egg Nog and watch the Night they Saved Christmas and The Christmas Story. The adventure and leg lamp memories will just coming rolling back.
FESTIVE FAMILIAL FRENZY
Tackling challenging family dynamics and a wide spectrum of personalities this year? Warm up with National Lampoons Holiday Vacation, Four Christmases and The Muppet Family Christmas (my personal fav!). With a Merry Cranberry Margarita recipe and these films under your belt, you will be prepared for everything from fires, electrical black outs, jump jumps to slippery patches.
SNOWFLAKES and SNUGGLING BY THE FIRE
If you want to spend the night snuggled by the fire with the kiddos, pop in the claymation version of Rudolph the Reindeer and Charlie Brown Christmas. For the kids, whip up some hot cocoa and for you definitely go for hot cocoa and Kahula. These films will warm the hearts of you and your kids.
If you are looking for some romance try Love Actually and The Family Man. Love will be in the air when you toast to your Christmas Valentine with Kir Royale’s.
So now it’s time to hear from you! What are your favorite holiday movies? What cocktail would you pair with your films?
With Holiday Cheer and Celebration,
