Coconut, rum and beach parties don’t usually come to mind when you think of Santa Claus, but delicious tropical cocktails may convince you that Kris Kringle really is (or should be) a beach bum.
Julep, the Westport bar specializing in whiskey drinks, is playing host to the nationwide Christmas-meets-tiki pop-up bar concept Sippin’ Santa. Enjoy holiday décor, themed drinks and a festive atmosphere.
