Miracle Pop-up Christmas Cocktails

A promotional photo from the Miracle pop-up shows a variety of this year's holiday cocktail offerings. 

'Tis the season for stringing lights, donning over-the-top sweaters and sipping drinks that just wouldn't seem right if it weren't this time of year. We're talking eggnog, Irish coffee and mulled wine — but it doesn't stop there.

On this week's Corner Table, hosts Lindsay Christians and Chris Lay dive into holiday cocktails: the good, the bad and the nose-freezing snowball. Join them as they sample the offerings at Miracle on King, a holiday cocktail pop-up at Lucille. Afterwards, they return to the studio for a lively conversation about the drinks that put them in the holiday spirit and why you should never do shots with your family.

Wondering about that fruitcake cocktail Lindsay mentions? Read about it and get the recipe here. Watch a video of the "Whiney Madisonian" mulled wine from 2011 here (recipe is attached).
