Dampfwerk Distilling in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, makes its aquavit in the style of kümmel, a northern German caraway liqueur that distiller Ralf Loeffelholz grew up appreciating. 

Here, creative director, Bridgit Loeffelholz, combines it with Dampfwerk’s peppermint liqueur and cold brew coffee for a sophisticated, autumnal take on an espresso martini.
