Remember when hotels were the accommodation equivalent of an Olive Garden: fine, but the same generic interpretation of an experience across the country? I love how hotels have evolved to embrace all things local. Case in point: this specific AC Hotel has created the 45th Parallel drink. It’s location in Bloomington, MN is on the 45th parallel, and they use vodka and aquavit from 45th Parallel Distillery in New Richmond, Wisconsin. They also give you a map with other 45th parallel cities like Grenoble, France to learn about while you’re imbibing. Gorgeous hotel, awesome food + drink, happy gal.
