20.21's Hemingway--drink of the week
1750 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis
With a bit of outdoor sipping time left this season, make sure you don't miss having a nip at the recently opened patio at 20.21 in the Walker. With a stunning view of downtown and a clean, modern vibe, it is sure to be another item on your list of reasons you love Minneapolis.
The Hemingway is one big reason. It's a takeoff on the rum-based Hemingway Daiquiri, perfectly chilled without being icy, even toward the end--not an easy accomplishment with a drink served up. It's made with the simple combination of Ketel One, grapefruit juice, and lime. Grapefruit often needs sweetness to balance it, and the sweet lime was a simple counterbalance. The freshness of the ingredients was evident, creating cocktail loveliness.
A stunning view of the city, an expertly prepared drink, and a few more summer breezes mean life is good, and it's made even better with 20.21's bar and lounge menu, featuring a three-course Asian fusion tasting menu for $20.21 a person, Tuesday through Saturday.
