Minnesota has a booming cocktail & spirit scene and an equally thriving craft coffee So why not combine the two and really make some Minnesota coffee cocktail magic! If coffee is not your thing, try a chai cocktail. Or if you like beer, go for some local brews made with local coffee. Blogger Stephanie Wieland shares some of her favorites.
These beers, spirits and coffees can be found easily at many Twin Cities grocery and liquor stores.
