‘Twas the day of Sippin Santa and all through the city, all the 20-somethings were shopping for sweaters that were far from pretty. The glasses and cups were all clean with such care – for Ricardo’s? They knew that chaos would be everywhere. From shots and Mariah to canes and bright lights – an event of such wonder will make the guests feel alright.

After weeks of anticipation, Calgary’s first boozy Christmas event kicks off today, November 17th, and to say that we’re ready would be an understatement.

With a one-of-a-kind concept, this tropical holiday pop-up will feature classic sips like their Kringle Kolada, Christmas Eve of Destruction and of course their sippin’ Santa, as well as brand new drinks like their white Russian Christmas and Yule Log Grog (just to name a few.)

In addition to this, they’ll also be featuring a holiday advent calendar with daily deals, and will actually be donating 10% of this year’s proceeds made through the sale of Santa Pants, their Christmas carol barrel and their Santa Heads signature glassware to aid the relief efforts of local restaurants through the James Beard Foundation!

If you’d like to check it out, or would like more information, you can visit their website OR follow Ricardo’s on Instagram here.

Now get ready to jingle those bells, Calgary – you only have until December December 31st to enjoy it!


When: Wednesday, November 17th – December 31st
Where: 1530 5 St SW, Calgary, AB
