Scout Notes

Back by popular demand, holiday pop-up cocktail bar, Miracle unwraps its second season in Atlanta beginning Friday, November 24 and will celebrate the holidays through Christmas Eve Sunday, December 24. Bringing back the nostalgic holiday spirit, us Hand-Pickers can look forward to a new location called Miracle Two that is popping up at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta..

Picture this: staff decked out head-to-toe in seasonal flair, holiday movie classics on the wall, old-school festive tunes on the record player and significant happenings all month long! And, let’s not forget the fan-favorite cocktails served in curated barware fit for any serious sipper including mugs shaped like Santa’s head. Expect to see the halls wrapped in a boozy winter-wonderland of garland, snowflakes, flashing lights, and tinsel, making it dangerously easy to get into the holiday spirit this year..

The cocktail menu at Miracle indulges in all of the flavors of the holiday season, from the spiced and refreshing Muletide (aquavit, sherry, ginger syrup, lime juice, and pumpkin pie soda) to the intensely flavored Santa-quila (reposado tequila, cacao nibs, sherry, maple syrup, and black walnut). No holiday cocktail menu is complete without its take on the classic eggnog. The Jingle Ball Nog features brown butter fat-washed cognac, sherry, almond milk, cream, sugar, egg, and nutmeg! Naughty and Nice shots will also be available – cinnamon bourbon and gingerbread-spices rye. Miracle’s cocktail list is created by beverage director, Nico de Soto, who also owns Mace in NYC and Danico in Paris. Drinks will be served in their festive, custom Miracle glassware including Santa’s Pants mugs and reindeer Collins glasses. The bars’ fun holiday glassware and other festive merchandise will be available to purchase at Miracle Two in Buckhead for that perfect holiday gift. The ins and outs of a Christmas feast are still TBA, but guests are guaranteed holiday snacks and will be able to decorate Christmas cookies. Full food and beverage menu will be available closer to opening..

Miracle Two will host themed events nightly, Wednesday through Sunday. No holiday-centric happening is complete without a Tacky Christmas Sweater contest, holiday movies, cookie hours, trivia, Christmas bingo, choral performances, DJs and even guest bartenders! A full schedule will be available in mid-November..

Miracle Two The Shops Buckhead Atlanta is celebrating this new location by partnering with local non-profit, New American Pathways from Friday, November 24 to Friday, December 1. During this time a portion of all proceeds will go to this incredible organization that supports refugee families rebuilding their lives in Georgia. “We are thrilled to partner with Miracle Two,” says CEO Paedia Mixon. “This a wonderfully unique way to celebrate GA Gives Day and an opportunity to educate a broader audience about refugees right here in Georgia – to share the richness in diversity and positive economic growth that they bring to our communities.” Miracle Two will host a special public event Tuesday, November 28 from 5 to 10 p.m., to support their GA Gives campaign to raise $30,000 for their mission on #GivingTuesday!

“THE MIRACLE® STORY It is a simple story—one born from a combination of right time, right place and perhaps a mother's intuition. Greg Boehm along with his partners was busy planning construction of what was to be their new cocktail bar called, Mace, located in the East Village of New York City. December and the holiday season was fast approaching and the cosmetic build out would most definitely see contractors and not bar staff working throughout the holidays. On one of these busy construction days, Greg received a call from his mother, a nice devout Jewish lady who at the time was traveling in Tibet. When Mrs. Boehm heard the schedule of work still at hand she came up with the idea that Greg and his partners should halt all construction in December and instead use the space for a pop-up Christmas bar and then continue construction in January. Greg, taking this advice from his mom, opened Mace as the original Miracle® location that holiday season of 2014. An unfinished space simply decorated with Christmas decor and serving fun holiday-themed drinks was a huge but unexpected success. Lines of people waited up to and over an hour each night to get in. Miracle® the holiday pop up bar became the darling of local press coverage and word grew of this must-visit holiday destination. The following year, Greg and his team decided to not only to bring back Miracle® to the original Mace location but to also partner with locations outside of New York. Their first partners joined from Washington, DC and Norwalk, Connecticut. Miracle® is back for a second season and now in two more locations did nothing to slow the public interest. Lines continued to form outside now all three locations and the business of Miracle had most definitely proven its worth. In 2016, Miracle grew to 17 locations, from Athens to Montreal and many states across the US. The 2017 Miracle® season will see new partners joining the Miracle team from all around the world. Hong Kong, Panama, Brazil, Australia, Canada and cities in over 29 US states are all going to be spreading the Miracle® cheer. Miracle®, now a sister company of Cocktail Kingdom®, has all of its signature ware manufactured to the same high standards that are synonymous with the Cocktail Kingdom® brand. From strength to strength, Miracle® has gone from its original location in a small cocktail lounge in the East Village to being hosted in cities across the globe.”.
