It was a car collector’s dream. Modern Luxury Scottsdale and Maserati Scottsdale partnered to celebrate the debut of its 2017 Maserati Levante with a stylish soiree.

THE PARTY Fast cars and beautiful people abounded at The Best of Summer Escapes with The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas at Scottsdale Maserati.

THE GUESTS Erik Gregory of Creative Leather, Dennis and Kas White of Cabinets by C&F, and Katie Easley of Kate Ryan Design were among the guests.

THE HIGHLIGHTS The Scottsdale Maserati showroom turned into a posh party venue as guests perused some of the most sought-after luxury cars in the world. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas was on-hand pouring its signature cocktail—a blend of lemon verbena and ginger-infused garnished with a Sichuan flower—which the bartender instructed guests to eat first. Faces scrunched in sensory shock as imbibers nibbled the plant and felt their tongues tingle and eventually numb. The effect is said to intensify the drinking experience by speeding up the salivary glands to inundate the taste buds with the cocktail’s flavors. Attendees also tried their hand at rolling a pair of dice for the chance to win a stay at the luxe Las Vegas hotel. –Lauren Swanson; photos by Haute Photography
