Radisson Blu vs. Radisson Red

The Radisson Blu at Mall of America is celebrating its fifth birthday in June! And it has a younger sibling in town. The Radisson Red is in downtown Minneapolis and is the only hotel of its kind in the United States. We had a bit of sibling rivalry in the studio. Bartenders Taylor Shaver from FireLake Grill House and Cocktail Bar and Britt Benner from OUIBar + KTCHN inside Radisson Red sling up some red, white and blue inspired drinks.
