Seeking a fun new way to sip this spring and summer? The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa presents, in collaboration with Scottsdale League for the Arts, Mixed: A Cocktail Culinary Series. During these can’t-miss events, inventive cocktails are expertly paired with inspired culinary concepts in an imaginative series of interactive tasting experiences.
Each dinner is $100 per person and hosted privately for 24 guests at resort. Tickets may be purchased here. (We suggest snatching them up now as they are sure to sell out.)
