The holiday season is upon us, which means it's time to snuggle up on the couch and watch those classic holiday movies we all love.


But since no movie night is complete without snacks and popcorn, you're going to need something stiff to wash it all down with. Right? Right!


Now...most holiday inspired cocktails are rich and bourbon-based, but we're going with a refreshing coconut water rum to keep things light this time around. Trust me on this.


Below, check out the perfect refreshing cocktail pairings for some of your favorite holiday movies. Let's get ho-ho-hammered, ladies and gents!
