The Orchard: Zuzu’s November Show Stopper Shake!

Monthly Traditions for us bitches are in full swing. The Zuzu Show Stopper Shake this month does not disappoint!  We were invited to taste the latest creation by Valley Ho’s Pastry Chef Clarissa Robinson.  This month’s shake The Orchard “Show Stopper” Shake includes a milkshake base of cinnamon, apple, and date, topped with miso caramel.  Think of a cross between caramel apple and fresh baked apple pie in milkshake form.  IT’s that.  Garnished with fresh apple fries, a mini oatmeal cookie stack that we wanted to ask for an entire box to go (but we didn’t because sometimes we elicit self control), gingerbread swiss roll lollipop, mini maple-date donut, aerated fall-spiced white chocolate, oat crumb, and whipped cream. Have we mentioned how much we love Zuzu’s whpped cream? I don’t know what kind of royal cows they’re getting this cream from but it’s thick and fluffy at the same time and we live for our brunches at Zuzu because of it.Zuzu Showstopper Milkshake OrchardAnyway, as cooler temperatures attempt to stick in Phoenix and Scottsdale, nothing sounds quite as good as warm fall flavors to embrace the season, but chilled because it’s still hot here. Also worth noting ZuZu at Hotel Valley Ho has been completely renovated feeling even more midcentury than before, with an almost modern vibe at the same time.  You’ll have to check it out for yourself to see what we mean. And while you’re there hit up the mimosa bar and order an avocado toast (because the macadamia nuts on top are the best Hawaiian style luxury you can add to your brunch, well that and the passion fruit syrup for your mimosa).
