It’s a Miracle! Popular Holiday Pop-Up Bar Goes Global

miracle holiday pop up bar cocktails
Launched in 2014 at Mace in New York City, the Christmas-themed pop-up bar, Miracle, has been delighting patrons with its mix of holiday whimsy and delicious cocktails. This year, Miracle is back and bigger than ever: expanding to over 50 locations globally.

The cocktail menu, which will be available at all Miracle locations, features drinks such as the Snowball Old Fashioned pictured below (gingerbread bourbon, wormwood bitters, and lemon zest); How The Gimlet Stole Christmas (gin, sage, and pine and caraway cordial); the Run Run Rudolph (blanco tequila, coffee liqueur, iced hot chocolate, and Mexican spices); and our personal favorite, the Yippie Ki Yay Mother F****r! (Barbados rum, cachaça, Trinidad overproof rum, purple yamand coconut orgeat, and pineapple). The cocktails were created by Miracle manager Joann Spiegel and Nico de Soto, bartender at Mace and Da Nico.

Every cocktail will be served in custom Cocktail Kingdom Miracle glassware (including mugs, coupes, highballs, and rocks glasses). In select locations, patrons will have the opportunity to buy the glassware, with 10 percent of all sales donated to Action Against Hunger. (Sounds like a solid stocking stuffer to us.)

Not only will guests find liquid cheer by the sleigh-full, but each of the locations will be outfitted with enough nostalgic Christmas decorations (and Christmas tunes) to make Ralphie Parker jealous. The team behind Miracle didn’t stop there, though. For some of the 50-plus locations (Chicago, New Orleans, and New York City), patrons will be treated to Sippin’ Santa, the company’s tiki-themed Christmas bar.
