A Christmas Cocktail Pop-Up Is Coming To London... This August

Get (candy) caned at this unseasonably seasonal pop-up.

Christmas really DOES come around earlier each year...

The Mistletoe Mixer — an unashamedly Christmassy cocktail pop-up that's all Wham! and retro fairy lights — launches on Thursday 1 August 2024, four months ahead of December, and almost five months premature of Christmas Day itself.

An array of Christmassy cocktails
Drinks include the Keep your change, ya filthy Flip! eggnog, and the Fraa-jeel-aay! It must be Italian! negroni.

The kitsch 12-seater bar — which surely owes more than a sprinkling of inspiration to the wonderful Miracle pop-up — can be found hidden behind a toilet door at Merchant House in the City for two weeks only this summer, offering up unseasonably seasonal slurps including the 'Keep your change, ya filthy Flip!'  (an eggnog-inspired drink garnished with a toasted marshmallow); the 'It's a beaut, Clark! It's a flute!' (a candy cane-topped peppermint champagne tipple) and the 'It's because I’m green isn't it?' — a spiced apple and ginger rum highball.

Listen, we just wrote the article, OK...

And to anyone now RAGING that they'd like to enjoy their summer first thank you very much, listen, we just wrote the article — it's not our bar.

Mistletoe Mixer operates on a ticketed basis, with Tuesday and Wednesday reserved for group experience bookings (£65pp including four drinks), and Thursday to Saturday for general tickets (£35pp including two drinks).
