Caroline Rhea hires David Hasselhoff to plan her Christmas, and we plan on drinking heavily to make it through this movie.
Shot: Fruitcake (Sling)shot, perfect for hitting neighborhood bullies who steal your sled in the nards.
1/4oz each: dark rum; apple brandy; orange liqueur; hazelnut liqueur
Cocktail: ‘Hoff’ Toddy, best served to keep fighting in-laws from leaving during the holidays. Or, you know, just let them go. Either way.
Rinse an Irish coffee glass with 1/4oz cinnamon schnapps. Add 3oz whiskey, 1tsp honey. Squeeze and drop in a lemon wedge. Fill with hot water. Stir. Garnish with a lemon wheel and cinnamon.
This was another movie picked by our beloved patrons and meant to torture us, but guess what? It wasn’t that bad. There were some really cringe-worthy moments, but it had a heartwarming ending, and isn’t that what real Christmas movies are all about? (Looking at you, Die Hard.)
Anyways, check out our full thoughts on the movie and drinks, as well as movie news, games, ranking 12 other “Christmas” films, plus much more at patreon.com/besottedgeek!

This year we reviewed both White Christmas and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale for our holiday episode, and decided to make a drink for each of them.
Shot: Yule Log, the magical(?) hunk of wood witches burn during winter solstice to ward off evil spirits.
1/2oz each dark creme de cacao and Irish cream
Cocktail: White Christmas, one of the greatest Christmas songs, one of the greatest Christmas movies, and what you hope for each year unless you have to drive.
1oz each white creme de menthe, white creme de cacao, and cream. Shake over ice and strain into a champagne glass. Garnish with red and green sprinkles.
While the merry bells keep ringing, happy holidays to you! I think that’s how that goes. Anyways, check out our thoughts on the drinks, movie, show, and much more on podcast 132, here:
