The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort restaurant has drinks that will complement any tasty dish

Whether it’s an evening on the town or a cocktail after a day lounging at the pool, The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort boasts a variety of colorful and creative drinks to suit any taste.

Toro hosts guests looking for distinct Central and South American cuisine with Japanese- and Peruvian-rooted flavors. 

“Each of our restaurants is known for its specialty drinks,” says Beverage Director Matt Doerr. “Toro is definitely known for its rum. I personally like blending liquids [spirits] to create something beautiful — it’s about turning a moment into a memory for guests.”
