Four Seasons Resort offers new twist on the Old Fashioned

Experience a twist on the Old Fashioned cocktail with the “Oaked, Smoked and Spiced” cocktail flight available starting this August through Oct. 31 at Proof, an American Canteen, at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North.

The flight is being offered as part of Four Seasons’ Cocktail Quarterly initiative, a global, year-long, beverage-focused initiative devoting attention to one cocktail trend, seasonal ingredient or technique, brand-wide, every three months.

Created onsite by cocktail connoisseurs Brian Leeds and Jon Crone, the new flight features Proof’s private label bourbon, barreled for the restaurant by Russell’s Reserve.

“Classics cocktails remain popular for a reason – their preparation has stood the test of time,” says Proof Manager Brian Leeds.

“The ‘Oaked, Smoked and Spiced’ flight stays true to the essence of the original cocktail, but showcases trending ingredients and culinary techniques to bring new energy to an American classic.”

Proof patrons can experience the flight at a cost of $18, or sample an individual, full-sized drink from the flight for $14. On Friday nights, guests can enjoy the flight at a discounted price of $14.

From August to October, the restaurant will feature complimentary Old Fashioned flight tastings once a week, showcasing unique techniques and educational elements.

On Proof’s cocktail menu, each of the cocktails in the Old Fashioned Flight will feature a “perfect pairing,” taking the guesswork out of a proper pairing. On Saturday, one of the three cocktails in the flight will be expertly paired with the dinner special for the evening and offered at a discounted price.
