Mix scotch with hot apple cider, a dash of maple syrup, and a cinnamon stick, and let the drink warm you along with the film.
If your tally is 9-12, you should watch Love Actually, along with a gin cranberry fizz. Navigate the complexity of romance and relationships along with all the onscreen couples, and root for the power of love, all with this mixture of gin, cranberry juice, and sparkling water by your side.
If your tally is 13-16, you should watch Miracle on 34th Street, with an Irish cream peppermint cocoa. The film is full of childlike wonder as a mother and child help a man by proving he is the real Santa Claus. Revisit your inner child (with an adult twist, of course) with hot cocoa, Irish cream liqueur, and a dash of peppermint syrup.
If your tally is 17-20, you should watch How The Grinch Stole Christmas, curled up with a pomegranate margarita. The movie is fantastic, whimsical, and exactly what the title says: a creature who wants to steal Christmas. It fits to have the whimsy of pomegranate juice, orange juice, ginger beer, and tequila, spiced with vanilla and cinnamon. Enjoy your trip to Whoville!
