[Orlando, FL] Gotta Go Orlando reports, “When guests walk into the new HighT, they will be walking straight into the imagination of storyteller Lewis Carroll, with the immersive experience offering a variety of differently themed rooms, including the Red Queen’s Piano Lounge, Absolem’s VIP lounge, and Balcony.”
“Befitting the phantasmagorical vibe of Carroll’s source material, the cocktail program will accentuate that mood,” Orlando Weekly adds.
You can even enjoy an E-Vape hookah with Absolem, the Blue Caterpillar himself.
HighT is a high tea tearoom and nighttime speakeasy with craft cocktails, live entertainment, afternoon tea service, and small-plate meals.
You might ask yourself, “I suppose I ought to eat or drink something or other; but the great question is ‘What?’”
These representative cocktail choices from HighT all say, “Drink me.”
- Sleepy Talk – A cozy espresso martini made with Tequila Ocho Reposado, Mr. Black coffee liqueur, and pumpkin spice, served with a dormouse cookie on Biscoff foam
- Maybe I’m Dreaming – A light and velvety tea-infused saketini, served in lychee clouds
- Travel by Hat – A cocktail featuring Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin, tropical fruit syrup, citrus, and Lord Bergamot tea
Accompany any of those with a treat like the Cheshire Cat Tail. The venue describes this purple-ish sweet. “Earl Grey mousse, cherry jam, and lemon curd cream encase an almond sponge cake topped with strawberry shortcake crisps served on a cookie crust.”
That will leave a smile on your face.
HighT, an artistic immersive cocktail experience in downtown Orlando, opened Apr. 28, 2023, and is open most nights until 2 a.m. They’re all mad there.
