Butcher & Bull, the steakhouse inside the Marriott hotel at 425. N. Cherry St., is having a Miracle on Cherry Street holiday pop-up bar through Dec. 31 with a special holiday cocktail and bar food menu.

The pop-up bar is in collaboration with Miracle, a concept started by Greg Boehm in New York City in 2014.

Miracle pop-ups are taking place in over 100 locations nationwide this year, as participating businesses buy into what is essentially a limited-run franchise. Miracle provides the recipes for a full holiday cocktail menu, along with merchandise and suggested holiday decor.

The Butcher & Bull has been decorated from floor to ceiling for the Miracle pop-up. There’s even a life-size cardboard cutout of Chevy Chase from “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” for people who want to take selfies.

The cocktail menu offers 10 holiday-themed cocktails plus three shots.

The Bad Santa ($13) features hot rum, Batavia Arrack, black Chai tea, date-infused oat milk and vanilla syrup. The Run Run Rudolph ($13) blends prosecco, London dry gin, mulled wine puree, lemon and cane syrup.

The Nice shot ($7) has rum, peppermint tea and chocolate. The Naughty shot ($7) has bourbon and cinnamon.

There’s also a selection of beer and wine.

Chef Richard Miller has created a special snack menu of more than a dozen items to go along with the cocktails.

Elf Ornaments ($8) consist of fried mac ‘n’ cheese, tomato jam, pecorino and pea sprouts. Christmas in Hawaii ($18) includes Waygu beef sliders, aioli, Kraft single, Hawaiian rolls and everything seasoning. Santa’s Cookies ($8) combine oatmeal cream pie and chocolate chip cream pie.

Merchandise for sale includes a Santa Pants Mug ($11), and Miracle Cozy Socks ($15).

Hours for the pop-up are 5 p.m. to midnight through Dec. 31.
