Tom Collins (Minnesota)

Scandinavian immigrants first began to influence the culture of Minnesota when they began mass-migrating into the state around 1880. Luckily for Minnesota, that meant an infusion of Aquavit, the signature caraway-infused Nordic spirit. This Tom Collins, from the Marvel Bar in Minneapolis, highlights local dill aquavit along with house-made pickle brine, lime juice and seltzer, finished with hand chipped ice.
