The temporary libation station debuted in 2014 in New York City and has become an international phenomenon, with 50 locations worldwide — one of which is now at Delray Beach's Death or Glory. Basically, it's a cornucopia of Christmas, from drinks to music to decor.
"Miracle is a cocktail pop-up concept created by Greg Boehm of Cocktail Kingdom in NYC," Annie Blake, partner of Death or Glory, explains. "We really know our cocktails and had a very solid sense of the pop-up as a concept, so I think we were a natural fit for the brand expansion."
All cocktails are served in Cocktail Kingdom's custom Miracle glassware, including Santa pants mugs and reindeer-adorned highballs. The glassware is available for purchase, and 10 percent of sales are donated to Action Against Hunger. The Run Run Rudolph and Mai Tai can cost $5 with the purchase of a Santa head or Santa pants mug for $9.99.
Death or Glory is also decked out in garland, ribbons, and other goodies inspired by nostalgic, old-school Christmas decorations, and holiday tunes play nonstop.
As far as her favorites, Blake has a few. "The cocktails are really great on this list. Don't let the kitsch, whimsical, and funny names fool you. These are some serious drinks. I can narrow my favorites down to three. If you're not a cocktail drinker or are generally a vodka drinker, the Christmapolitan is absolutely delicious. The Fa La La La La La La La La is also an amazing riff on a gin fizz, and I'd say confidently that even if you don't like gin, you'll like this drink. Plus, it's really fun to order. Finally, if you're a whiskey fan, the You'll Shoot Your Rye out is a really fun combination with it's spiced rye and marshmallow fluff Budweiser syrup. Don't let the word 'fluff' fool you, though. It packs a punch."
