We looove holidays with our family. Stocked fridge, cozy fire in the fireplace, free toilet paper, cable television, and, most importantly, parents picking up the tab when you go out to eat. Yes, we will be taking that dessert menu. 

But sometimes, we need a little extra help to get through the holidays. Especially when your parents start telling that story of how you barfed on your crush at prom...again. It's been 5 years. LET IT GO, DAD.

Here are 8 holiday themed shots that will make the embarrassing stories a little more bearable.

Looks like candy canes do have a purpose besides decorating the Christmas tree. A holiday-tastic vodka-based jell-o shot made with peppermint schnapps and white chocolate liqueur. Forget the cookies, I want this instead. You're welcome.

6. Gingerbread Shot

Gingerbread screams the winter holidays. You can't get through the year without having gingerbread flavor at some point during the chilly season. Try something a little less difficult than building an entire gingerbread house but with the same holiday spirit. A delicious drink worth the effort.
