In honor of losing Minnesota's native son, Prince, at this time last year Firelake at the Radisson Blu Mall of America is paying tribute. Two cocktails are on the menu that were inspired by the Purple One, and partial proceeds from each go to Bridge for Youth -- a non-profit organization that helps the 4,000 youth who are homeless in the Twin Cities every night.
One of these cocktails, called "Let's Go Crazy," is a slightly-modified Minnesota version of the classic Aviation cocktail. This well-balanced, light, bright, and beautiful gin cocktail has one other important attribute: it's purple.
FireLike Grill House & Cocktail Bar features a modern yet comfortable décor, a chic bar area, a craft cocktail list, and deluxe desserts. FireLake has reinvented local dining by capturing the essence of the best that Minnesota has to offer with a farm-to-table concept that incorporates fresh and local produce wherever possible
