Sippin' Santa, a tiki version complete with Santa in sandals and blow-up flamingos, will take over Bitter & Twisted Cocktail Parlour.
Sippin' Santa kicks off the celebrations on Nov. 15 and Miracle at Floor 13 starts the next day, Nov. 16.
At the Miracle on Floor 13 pop-up, the 2023 menu brings back favorites from years past including the Christmapolitan made with vodka, elderflower and spiced cranberry sauce; and The Christmas Cricket, a newer cocktail that made its debut in 2022. The festive sipper is made with tequila, vanilla liqueur and mole bitters.
New menu items at Miracle this year include Rudolph's Replacement which includes vodka, coffee liqueur, white creme de cacao, orange curacao, chai, almond milk and bitters; and Marshmallows & Unicorns, made with gin, vanilla liqueur, velvet falernum, cherry liqueur, cardamom, black pepper, marshmallow, lemon, egg white, tiki bitters and soda.
New creations will also be on the menu, such as the Merry Spritzmas, a bubbly option with prosecco, tawny port, fig preserves and cardamom bitters; and the Ginger Snapper which includes navy strength rum and macadamia nut liqueur.
Many of the drinks served at Miracle and Sippin' Santa are served in festive glassware and colorful mugs. Those keepsakes will also be available for purchase.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Miracle Bar concept, which started in New York City. The popular pop-up spread around the country and the world, bringing festive drinks and decor to bars far and wide. In 2023, close to 200 bars will transform into Miracle Bars throughout the holiday season, according to a news release.
“It’s incredibly exciting to be kicking off the 2023 season, almost a decade to when we first started,” Miracle founder Greg Boehm said in the release. “Witnessing the growth and transformation of Miracle and Sippin’ Santa, along with the addition of numerous cities and partners to the family, makes each season even more remarkable than the last."
This is the fourth year that Miracle will take over Floor 13 in Phoenix. Sippin' Santa first took over Bitter & Twisted in 2019.
Reservations for Miracle Bar can be made on the Floor 13 website. At Bitter & Twisted, the experience is walk-in only and guests will be able to join a Yelp waitlist online.
