The 7 Best Chick Flick & Cocktail Combos For Your Girls Night In

I love struggling to unclip my suede bodysuit to pee in an overcrowded bar just as much as the next gal (it’s all in the flick of the wrist), but sometimes a night in is just what the doctor ordered. Drinking at home is cheaper, safer and TBH way more fun if you can get all the girls together.

1. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days with a Cosmo

If there’s a better drink to describe a single girl living in New York (and working at a fashion magazine) then I’d like to hear about it. It’s tasty, it’s sweet, it’s fun, it’s going to get you drunk.

2. The Notebook with Merlot

Watching The Notebook requires a drink as deep and romantic as the film itself. Pro tip: use your empty glass to catch your tears.

3. Thirteen Going on Thirty with a Dirty Shirley

Jennifer Garner plays a 13-year-old in the body of a 30-year-old in this modern classic, so channel your inner Jenna Rink by blasting Pat Benatar with a Shirley Temple—“not virgin.”

4. She’s the Man with Cabernet and sliced Gouda

Honestly, name a more iconic duo. Crack open your favorite red and pair it with Viola’s favorite cheese for a *gouda* time.

5. Ten Things I Hate About You with a Miller Lite

Ah, tastes like junior prom.  If anyone asks, you’re carb loading for a (Netflix) marathon.

6. What a Girl Wants with a Gin and Tonic

In 2002 we thought Amanda Bynes couldn’t get any cooler, but in 2003 she clapped back with What a Girl Wants. Enjoy this cocktail fit for a queen and take your British girl party to the next level with a Spice Girls jam session.

7. Bridesmaids with Tequila Shots

Girl. Gang. Goals.  Has a funnier group of women ever been together in one movie? Grab some tequila shots for you and your bestie and see if you can top Kristin Wiig and Maya Rudolph’s comedic chemistry.

Want to take your girls night to the next level? Try one of these easy, no-bake snacks too.  They’re delicious and ~perf~ for dorm parties!
