Honey Drinks

The Radisson Blu Mall of America teamed up with the University of Minnesota Bee Squad to house a colony of honeybees.  They actually use the honey that is produced in some of the drink recipes from Radisson Blue’s Firelake Grill House and Cocktail Bar.

Radisson Blu Mall of America and the University of Minnesota Bee Squad offer Honey Bee Helper Bee Demonstrations in the hotel’s lobby to learn about honey bee colonies host from 3-4 p.m. every Saturday this summer. The University of Minnesota’s Bee Squad will be available to walk guests through the process of making honey and their partnership with the hotel to offer these bees a home. The series is completely free and will go through August 12. Guests who attend the Honey Bee Helper Bee Demonstrations will receive a $5 off coupon to FireLake.
