The Grinch Drinking Game | Christmas Movie Party Games

Grinch Drinking Game is a great twist to a childhood favorite movie.  I’ve watched this movie many many many times.  I fondly sing all the words to, your a mean one Mr. Grinch.  So this holiday season, here are the grinch drinking game rules to spice up this classic tale.


How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a famous Christmas movie, adapted from the children’s storybook.  The most famous version of this story is starring Jim Carey, the version we based our Grinch Movie Drinking Game rules on.


The story tells a tale of a jealous, greedy and angry Grinch, exiled to the Mount Crumpit, overlooking the happy town of Whoville. The who’s down in whoville love Christmas, even with the Grinch set to ruin the Christmas season.

Get your rum and eggnog ready, your festive cheer, and enjoy the classic Grinch Christmas movie while getting holiday hammered.

Grinch Drinking Game Rules:

Drink When: 

  • you hear the word “Grinch”
  • the Grinch is disgusted by Christmas
  • the Grinch speaks to Max
  • the Grinch has a creepy smile

Next Level “Extreme” version:

  • Drink when you hear “Who”
  • Finish your drink when you hear

Don’t take the next level drinking option to lightly.  This means atleast an additional 40 drinks to the level 1 rules.

Take for example this famous quote from the Grinch

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It comes without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?

From this famous quote above, drink 3 times!  I myself love this quote, it’s so true. Christmas doesn’t come from the store, it means a little bit more.  So why not get together with some friends and have some fun with this Christmas movie classic.

I also love getting into the festive cheer of this movie, with a grinch cocktail too! A creation of peach schnapps, rum, mixed with soda and a splash of orange juice.  Topped with a candy cane stir stick.
