Oaked, Smoked and Spiced

  • This is a trio of cocktails based off of the Old Fashioned – a clever twist on a traditional wine or beer flight! Guests are able to taste a “traditional” Old Fashioned and then discover how easily those ingredients can be altered by aging, smoking, or adding spice. In addition, Proof’s private label bourbon from Russell’s Reserve adds another element of exclusivity.
  • $18 for entire flight
  • At Proof at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale, 10600 E. Crescent Moon Dr. in Scottsdale
