Since there's really no better accessory than a cocktail in your hand, each week brings you a tasty adult beverage from one of our favorite drinking establishments, complete with recipe.
This week: The Mint at The Mint
The Mint in Old Town Scottsdale has only been open for three months, and on any given Saturday night, the 7,000-square-foot space is already packed wall to wall with Scottsdale elite.
Tricked out with lounge decor, hi-tech lighting, and a spacious cabana-style patio, The Mint is Old Town Scottsdale's new black.
We know a cocktail is special when it's dubbed the exact name of the restaurant. And this one's packed with vodka, lemon and starfruit puree.
