It’s that time of year again—when every American is reassured that overeating at Thanksgiving is okay, eggnog is best consumed by the pint, and December is an excuse to try every cookie, cake, and holiday-themed cocktail you can get your hands on. And then there’s the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, featuring stunning women in very little clothing.

Everyone and their mother tunes in to watch the beautiful models, fun musical guests and the hand-crafted and artistic costumes. To celebrate this year’s VSFS, Spoon University GW has compiled a list of our favorite Spoon recipes and drinks to help you and your roommates throw the best Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Party yet. This year’s theme is “irony,” with indulgent desserts and boozy drinks. Make a few, or all, of these easy recipes and be thankful that you don’t have to give up chocolate for your job.

1. Ultimate Jungle Juice

For a large party, jungle juice is an easy way to prepare a mass quantity of delicious, alcoholic beverages. And if you’re going to watch beautiful women strut in lingerie, alcohol is an easy way to drown out envy so everyone can enjoy the show. This recipe features a variety of fruit, that no doubt the Angels themselves would approve of. If you’re trying to be classy or put in a little bit less effort, wine is your next best-bet for the perfect viewing party.

3. Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough with Rosemary

Ever since witnessing our parents assembling a beautiful bowl of raw cookie dough to be transformed into warm, gooey cookies, we have all—ALL—wanted to eat the raw dough. Now, for the Victorias Secret Fashion Show, you finally can. This treat can be made ahead of time, placed on a platter, and taken out when your guests start clamoring for more sugar and chocolate.
