Movie Night Ideas on a Cold Winter Night!


It's a familiar scene during the winter months, you are stuck inside the house, sometimes for days.. Don't let these frigid temperatures, blizzards or gloomy rain storms get you down when there are lots of indoor activities to do indoors.If you're not into catching up on household chores or even working from home, try something a bit more fun and entertaining to keep your mind occupied and your sanity intact! 

Have a movie day! Whether it's you and your significant other or maybe with the kids, a movie marathon day is a great way to pass the time. Get the popcorn ready and either keep it simple with buttery popcorn or get creative with a few special flavors. You may also want to line up other snacks like chips, dips, crackers, cheese, nachos or maybe a fruit tray.

Make sure you have enough comfy seats for everyone ~ remember this is a marathon! Pillows, blankets, slippers and pajamas would make it even more like a slumber party! Whatever it takes to ensure everyone is cozy and comfortable, do it! 

After the scene is set and the movies are lined up, now it's time to mix up a few tasty cocktails. Sauza 901 Tequila, founded by Justin Timberlake and his personal Mixologist, Eddy Buckingham, have come up with a few cocktails that are sure to keep you warm when it's cold outside!

  1. I can't drink and watch tv, I'd be snoring too soon LOL, but those sound like they might be nice in the summer time around a fire pit
