Verdict? Recommended

Regular readers know that the Cove Bar’s Smoked Turkey is a fantastic cocktail. Well-balanced. Smoky. A real treat. A delight every time.

Well, the Cove Bar is no more. Swept away by Pixar Pier, it’s become the Lamplight Lounge. And the Lamplight’s cocktail menu is different: they don’t do a Smoked Turkey.

Enter the Alfresco Tasting Terrace.

The Terrace is a fun hideaway, a refuge in the parks, an oasis. And they’ve historically only served wine and beer. But with recent changes in the parks, it seems they’re now in the cocktail game.

And they have a Smoked Turkey.

Yes. Wonderful. One, please.

I’m happy to report that the Tasting Terrace version of the Smoked Turkey is as solid as the Cove’s. It’s the right blend of bourbon, grenadine, and smoke. It comes with the requisite three cherries. And it’s delightful for sipping on a hot summer day.

Same great cocktail, new home. Awesome. (And still a Standout.)
