Honey-Kissed Cosmopolitan

Put away the can opener and forget about that whole “jelly or whole berry” debate. Unlike the plate-staining side dish, this Cosmo variant at Bridges at New York Hilton Midtown has a boozy kick. Grapefruit vodka mimics the citrus peel that gives popping, simmering berries bright citrus, and a rosemary sprig adds a whiff of herbaceousness.
