Twilight Sky Terrace's Dazzling Cocktails

Posted By on Tue, Aug 18, 2015 at 8:56 AM

If you’ve never been to Twilight Sky Terrace seventeen stories atop the Madison Hotel in downtown Memphis, the view alone is enough of a reason to go… but their provocative cocktails make the experience even better. The 2015 season theme is the celebration of being “StarStruck.” With that comes a list of new, constellation-themed handcrafted cocktails.

I tried three of the cocktails, starting with the Space Kitty ($11) because I’m a sucker for Prosecco. The drink has Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka, rosemary-grapefruit syrup, fresh lemon juice and Proescco. The syrup is homemade, and I can tell on the first sip. I haven’t tasted anything quite like this before. You immediately get a hint of grapefruit and the drink packs a punch. The cocktail starts off tart. Then you get layers of sweetness, followed by layers of citrus. The supervisor for Twilight Sky Terrace, James McDermott, let me know that most of the juices in their drinks are freshly squeezed after I pointed out that you could see the remnants of the lemon juice in the glass. It’s a nice touch. You don’t even taste the vodka, but I love that because it’s well-masked for your enjoyment. This drink will sneak up on you!
