A fun cocktail made famous in the “Scrooged” movie. Bill Murray’s character drinks a simple cherry coke (tab) and vodka cocktail in his office. Grab some funny free snarky holiday cards to give out too! For more fun drinks see my Cocktails page.

I think just about everyone has seen the movie “Scrooged”. If you haven’t seen the movie, it is a modern version of the old Charles Dickens Tale,  A Christmas Carol. I made a cocktail, the Scrooged Yule Love It Cherry Coke Vodka Cocktail after the main character played by Bill Murray!

In the story, Frank Cross, played by the hilarious Bill Murray is a tv executive that has the very same character flaws as Ebenezer Scrooge in the original story.  He is visited by the three ghosts of past, present, and future. They comically show Frank how his actions affect others and ultimately persuade him to change his destiny by being good to others.

Scrooged Yule Love It Cherry Coke Vodka Cocktail

In one of the scenes of the movie, he asks his secretary to make him a cocktail of Tab and Vodka. Back in the 1960-70s Tab Cola was made by the Coka-Cola Company and was one of the very few diet sodas around. Tab’s popularity eventually faded and was replaced with Diet Coke in the early 1990s.

I searched a few stores to see if there actually was any Tab on shelves and unfortunately I was unable to find any. I am kind of glad I didn’t, too. I am not a fan of sodas anymore because of the added sugar and/or sugar substitutes. For this recipe I opted for the more modern version of Diet Coke, I used Coke Zero!


I also made some Snarky Christmas/Holiday Cards for you to print out and share! Their snappy little sayings seem to fit right in with the vibe of this movie. So enjoy Lumpy’s favorite cocktail and go spread some holiday cheer!

  1. I’m blushing as I admit I’m old enough to remember Tab. It was vile – so very vile. :) This is one of my fave movies too. I’m now realizing that all of these movies in the blog hop are favorites.

  2. One of my all time faves. I didn’t know that about TaB, either! A cocktail and some history? Yule love it! (Love how you incorporated that, btw!)

  3. Kim,

    This is awesome and I love this movie. Great hopping with you.
