The Gift That Keeps on Giving: “Miracle at Elvira’s” Christmas Bar Returns

Traveling bar returns to Tucson with new Christmas-inspired cocktails.

Downtown Tucson’s Elvira’s is hosting the traveling Miracle Christmas Pop-Up Bar from New York City on Friday, November 23 – Monday, December 31.

With its launch happening the day after Thanksgiving, Miracle isn’t wasting any time setting up its pop-up — now expanding to more than 80 locations around the world.

“The growth of Miracle and the love that guests have for this concept has been completely amazing, ” says Miracle manager Joann Spiegel. “We can’t wait to see what’s in store for all of our locations in 2018.”

The pop-up is offering 10 cocktails and two shots (some nice and others naughty), and they’ll be poured in themed mugs and glassware to match the wintry, traditional Christmas concept at the bar.

If you had the chance to try any of the cocktails last year, you’re probably looking forward to tasting the new additions and returning favorites on the menu. So, check the list — not once, but twice — and see what’s new.
