Miracle’s Run Run Rudolph

Run Run Rudolph chocolate cocktail

A perfect trifecta of holiday flavors.

In this drink from the 2017 Miracle pop-up menu (the same name is used for a different drink on the current menu), the richness of chocolate and coffee are countered by the brightness of blanco tequila.


  • 1½ oz. blanco tequila
  • ½ oz. coffee liqueur
  • 6 oz. cooled hot chocolate
  • Tools:barspoon
  • Glass:Collins
  • Garnish:fresh whipped cream, cinnamon-cocoa dust


Combine all the ingredients in an ice-filled Collins glass and stir to mix. Top with fresh whipped cream, then sprinkle with cinnamon-cocoa dust.

Cooled Hot Chocolate: In a dry saucepan over medium heat, toast 1 cinnamon stick, 2 whole cloves, 1 long pepper (available at spice shops or online), and ¼ tsp. of paprika until aromatic. Add 6 oz. of water and bring to a boil, then add 1 single-serving packet of hot cocoa powder (Miracle uses Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate dry mix); reduce heat to low, and simmer for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let the mixture cool, taking care not to let the spices steep too long. Once cool, strain through a mesh strainer to remove spice sediment. Makes one serving.

Cinnamon-Cocoa Dust: Combine 2 tsp. of cocoa powder with ½ tsp. of ground cinnamon.
