La Hacienda at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort
As a food and cocktail writer, my assignments are more fun than most, including a recent visit to La Hacienda at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess for a fall margarita feature. Follow along on an evening of fun with fantastic service, expert cocktails, and delicious food with videos and photos:
Ray describing our margarita samplers:
Resident "Tequila Goddess" and expert Katie greeted us with The "Snake Bite" tequila sampler with sangrita, and later a mezcal flight.
And ask Ray for his cocktail suggestions too! When he heard I liked mezcal and my husband liked sotol, he delivered us a Mezcal Mule and a Sotol Paloma.
We started with a perfect tableside guacamole made by Zayra and then a wonderful Mexican feast followed, with La Hacienda kindly plating us samples of some of their signature dishes
Spoiled with desserts: Cinnamon churros with dipping sauces in chocolate cups, tres leches coconut cake, and chocolate Godiva cake with rompope (Mexican eggnog liqueur).
The grand finale was La Hacienda's famous flaming coffee drink. Ray chose a Cafe 1921 with 1921 tequila cream and Cafe Acapulco with Frangelico, Bailey's, and Grand Marnier.
Thank to you the fabulous team at La Hacienda! Mom and dad move to Arizona tomorrow, and I know where we will be taking them to celebrate.
La Hacienda is located in the beautiful Fairmont Scottsdale Princess at 7575 E Princess Dr, Scottsdale, AZ 85255.
