The signature drinks at The Peabody Memphis are throwbacks to an era of front porch parties and dapper clothing styles. The Lobby Bar, referred to as “Memphis’ living room,” serves the Peabody Cocktail, a concoction of rum and Southern Comfort blended with orange juice, pineapple juice and a splash of grenadine. The Peabody Mint Julep is a mid-South tradition made with a Early Times Mint Bourbon, fresh mint and The Peabody’s secret twist.
No bar at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel would be complete without Jack Daniel’s, the taste that started the tradition of the world-famous Peabody Ducks (the cocktail napkins at the Lobby Bar tell the story of how the Peabody Ducks ended up in the lobby fountain more than 75 years ago). Partial to Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, The Peabody Memphis has its own Peabody-select Jack Daniel’s single barrel, from which they make a number of drinks, including Lynn Tolley’s Lady Manhattan, which was named for Jack Daniel’s great grand niece. The Jack Daniel’s flight is another popular drink option at The Peabody Memphis.
At the luxury Memphis hotel’s Corner Bar, there is a signature 24-bottle Cruvinet wine dispensing system. It allows you to get small tastings of high-end wines in two-, four- or six-ounce pours. The oxygen chamber prevents the wines from going bad, meaning you can sample high-end bottles of reds, whites and rosés by the glass and decide how much you want. Martinis, like the signature Blue Suede Shoes, are crowd pleasers as well at this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel.
