a visit to the original miracle on ninth christmas bar

Where is the best place for a sophisticated artisanal cocktail that incorporates the flavors and scents of the season? One that also exudes a laid-back, remember-when-we-were-kids, holiday-TV-special kind of vibe? Does such an establishment actually exist? Yes, Virginia. It’s a Christmas miracle. Literally. It’s Miracle on Ninth Street at Mace in New York City. And also over 50 other “Miracle” bars in the US, Canada, Europe, Central America and Asia. We paid a visit to the original Miracle on Ninth Christmas bar and interviewed the founder. We also did a taste test, and basically got our Santa on. So. Much. Fun!
