Cozy Up | The Best Winter Movies + Cocktail Combos

It’s freezing outside, which can only mean one thing… winter is coming! Perfect for a night in with your boo or babes, we’re dishing a few of our favorite movies and cocktail combos to get you through the chill. The snuggle is real right now, and we’re so here for it!

If you’re looking for a classic rom-com, The Holiday is here to bring all the feels. Two women who are fed up with their love lives swap homes, only to find themselves falling in love with local men. The only thing that will get you into the holiday spirit more than this movie is this festive drink: a Peppermint Chocolate Martini with candy canes on the rim (yum!).

Whether you have kids or not, you’ll love this magical movie. A daring princess sets out on an adventure to save her kingdom from eternal winter (no thank you!), alongside a few trusty sidekicks.
