It would be easy to move the cocktail set very close to the ground, but if you get too close, the foot pedal won't work. I'd experiment with a cocktail set, if you can get ahold of one, and see how low you can get it and still have everything work. They are pretty standard at 24 inches tall. Assuming you need six inches of vertical space minimum for a foot pedal to work. then your drum would be about 30 inches tall. If you're 61 inches tall, it might work.
