Scrooged is probably my favorite holiday movie of all time. The classic spin on the Dickens novel is equal parts good acting, great comedy, and a good story that makes you feel good this time of year. It isn’t truly Christmas season without at least one scrooge trying to bring you down right? Well this cocktail is for THAT guy/girl, It comes courtesy of Stonecutter spirits, a woman-led craft distillery located up in Vermont. The folks at Stonecutter are celebrating in style with this homage to Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. If you’re local to the area, you can swing by their flagship bar, Highball Social, to try this and several other holiday cocktails! them all!
