Maggiano’s Handcrafted Classic Cocktail Recipe: “W” Sour

Maggiano’s Handcrafted Classic Cocktail Recipe: “W” Sour

Bourbon drinks are on the rise and we wanted to introduce you to a new cocktail to delight both beginners and aficionados. This Handcrafted Classic Cocktail is a play on a whiskey sour and uses red wine to balance the bourbon. What's a sour and what does the "W" stand for? The sour gets its name from the key ingredient, lemon juice. The "W" is actually a two-fer and represents Woodford Reserve and wine.  And why wine? Wine not?! In all seriousness, the sour notes are so refreshing and bright that it matches that whiskey profile – making it perfect for all seasons. This is just one of our newest cocktails. Ask your bartender or server what’s new the next time you visit us. In the meantime, impress your bourbon whiskey lovers at home.

Alexis’ Send-off Party to Paris

Alexis’ Send-off Party to Paris

Alexis, 14
cancer
I wish to go to Paris

The Maggiano’s Scottsdale location went above and beyond to create an extraordinary party to honor Alexis and his wish being granted. Greeting Alexis, his family and friends was a large sign with his picture welcoming him to Maggiano’s. All of the serves donned Make-A-Wish t-shirts and buttons with Alexis’ photo on them.
The entire experience was wonderful for Alexis and his family. The staff decorated a private room that included balloons and a table covered with candy. The staff presented him with gifts which included a soccer jersey, which is his favorite sport, and even gave him a signed chef hat! The party ended with a custom soccer themed cake for him and his family to enjoy.

“This is such a special night for us, after all that Alexis has been through. We are grateful that we are able to celebrate here with family and friends, it means so much to us.” – Wish mom Yadira
