Miracle is a Christmas-themed pop-up cocktail bar that serves holiday cocktails in a festive setting. With kitschy holiday décor, professionally-developed cocktails and the nostalgic energy of the best office party you’ve ever been to, Miracle’s goal is to get even the grouchiest grinch in the holiday spirit.
If Santa had a drink to wind down after his busiest night of the year, it would be Miracle’s Snowball Old-Fashioned. The seasonal take on this classic drink includes familiar ingredients of rye, bitters, and a touch of orange zest. What’s the difference? It replaces cherries with gingerbread syrup, guaranteeing that this holiday cocktail dashes through the snow with sugar and spice. Not only would Santa cherish it after a long wintry night, but you will too.
With a deep sweetness and slightly smoky flavor balanced by the brightness of citrus, when pairing this cocktail, opt for foods with salty, sharp, or nutty profiles like these Candied Holiday Peanuts.
These flavors can cut the sugary element of the drink and provide a complimentary counterpoint to the bourbon notes, especially if it’s made with a spicier rye whiskey.Print
