Much like holiday film Home Alone got a sequel, so Orlando's holiday-themed pop-up bar Miracle on Orange is getting a companion in Sippin' Santa this year.

Set to take over 360 American Bistro & Bar in Celebration on Friday, Nov. 27, Sippin' Santa will be serving up holiday cheer with a tiki twist from a specialty cocktail menu.

The tiki-themed selection of drinks includes the Kaloka Colada (rum, pumpkin-spiced coconut cream, orange Curacao, lime juice, orange juice),  Brah Humbug (scotch, Drambuie, mulled wine syrup, served hot), and the
Blitzen Bowl for two (rum, allspice dram, apricot brandy, Tuaca, ginger syrup, lime juice, Angostura bitters, almond bitters).

The array of drinks was devised by tiki whiz Jeff "Beachbum" Barry, the author of several books on vintage tiki flavors, and if you can't trust a gent whose nickname is Beachbum to know tiki, who can you trust?

The Celebration location is the only Sippin' Santa in Florida this year.

Sippin' Santa happens at 360 American Bar in the Meliá Orlando hotel until Jan. 4, 2021.
