The “Christmapolitan” is a holiday cocktail that gives a classic taste a Christmas twist

The Tremont neighborhood's The Spotted Owl is bringing in the holidays with help from the Miracle pop-up bar. The Christmas-themed cocktail menu gives the Cosmopolitan a taste of the season.

It’s the holiday season, so why settle for just any old drink? You need a HOLIDAY drink! Eggnog! Ground-up candy canes! Things on fire! In that spirit, welcome the Christmapolitan, a seasonal variation on the Cosmopolitan, that pink-tinted drink that was a ubiquitous part of “girls night out” once upon a time. For this twist, the spice is turned up, and the Christmas cheer will follow.

At the Spotted Owl, (710 Jefferson Ave) the staff is known for their top-tier cocktails, and the special touches added to the Christmapolitan on right in line with their regular fare. For the month of December, the bar has joined the “Miracle” pop-up bar concept, that unites bars across the country (and a few around the world) in a celebration of old-fashioned Christmas, mixed with upscale cocktails.

Bartender Sirjoon Elassal shows us how to make the holly-berry-hued drink, but if you aren’t in the mood to make it, give a gift to yourself, and stop by the Spotted Owl for yourself.
