The holidays might still seem a long way off but starting the day after Thanksgiving, on Friday, November 24, Polite Provisions will be transforming into a kitschy winter wonderland. The Adams Avenue bar is one of 50 top bars around the world that will be turning itself Miracle, the popular Christmas-themed pop-up bar that first launched in 2014 in New York City.

Running through Christmas Eve, the temporary pop-up will deck out the CH Projects’ bar with tons of Christmas decorations, where selections from Miracle’s seasonally-themed menu (see below) will be served including the Snowball Old Fashioned (with gingerbread bourbon, wormwood bitters, and lemon zest) and Run Run Rudolph (blanco tequila, coffee liqueur, iced hot chocolate, Mexican spices) as well as “nice” and “naughty” shots. Drinks will come in custom-themed glassware, which may be available for purchase with 10 percent of proceeds going to Action Against Hunger. During the month-long pop-up, Polite Provisions will continue to offer its standard menu as well as its own go-to holiday cocktails.
