This holiday season more than 100 Christmas-themed Miracle Pop-up bars open globally, featuring wintry sips served in kitschy tiki-inspired glassware. Made by Cocktail Kingdom, these mugs are filled with good tidings and available for purchase at pop-up locations such as New Orleans, New York and Miami. “Childhood dreams of dinosaur toys come rushing back as you’re served a cocktail in a bright green ceramic dinosaur mug wearing a Santa cap,” says Greg Boehm, founder of Miracle Pop-up, about this year’s SanTaRex mug.

Missile-Toe Shot Glass

A bulbous green monster toe with a glossy, crimson pedicure will make even the biggest grinch of the group excited to take a shot.

Christmas Carol Barrel

The Christmas Carol Barrel—filled with blanco tequila, coffee and cognac liqueur, iced hot chocolate and Mexican spices—is said to have imbibers caroling into the wee hours.

Santa Pants Mug

This mug is hand-painted to offer a familiar sight seen inside chimneys everywhere on Christmas Eve.
