From the drink’s creator, Maybe Sammy venue manager Sarah Proietti:

“Mirage comes from the French verb mirer (“to look at”), which is related to mirror. Mirer, itself, is from Latin (“to wonder at”), the ancestor of the commonly seen admire, miracle, and marvel. We have used the word ‘mirage’as the central concept for this cocktail menu but in a nutshell, we want our guests to ‘expect the unexpected.’ Be transported on a sensory experience embodying art, body and mind. Inspired by one of my favourite moment from last year at Burning Man — a sensory experience embodying art, body and mind. My mirage was the best example of humanity living in a temporary city in the glimmering desert.”
