Time Out says

Christmas comes but once a year, unless you're Here and Now

The Arts District cocktail bar is reprising its winter holiday pop-up and bringing some kitschy yuletide cheer to the summer with Blitzen’s: Christmas in July. The jolly cocktail menu returned July 23, and it was on Dancer, Dasher, Prancer and Vixen only through July 28, but thankfully just got extended through August 3—which means you've got a few more days to enjoy Christmas- and Hanukkah-themed drinks, tinsel, colored lights and even games like festive drag-queen bingo. 

You can seal yourself off from the heat and pretend you're in your own personal snow globe with à la carte cocktails such as the Gin-gle All The Way (gin, aquavit, Licor 43, pine liqueur, lime and tonic), the Mele Kalikimaka (rum, sweet vermouth, mulled-wine syrup, orange and lime) and the XMAS at K-Mart (apple brandy, rye, apple cider, maple and prosecco)—and give yourself some late-night, waiting-up-for-Santa fuel with bar bites like sweet potato fritters with candied nuts and marshmallow.
