About the series

The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa presents in collaboration with Scottsdale League for the Arts – “Mixed: A Cocktail Culinary Series” in which inventive cocktails are expertly paired with inspired culinary concepts in an imaginative series of interactive tasting experiences.

Beverage Specialist Matt Allen’s innovative creations take center stage as Allen takes guests through a sequence of cocktail and culinary pairings that include off-the-beaten-path themes like “Birds & Bees,” featuring honey-infused cocktails paired with savory poultry dishes, and “Locals Only,” featuring barrel-aged Arizona spirits paired with Arizona prime cuts sourced from ranches across the state.

The series launches in February of 2019 and is priced at $100 per person. Event seating is limited with only 24 seats available per event, each hosted privately at The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa.

For a limited time, tickets for the collective five-dinner series are presented as Mixed: A Cocktail Culinary Series package for $450 per package, available for purchase until February 15.
