Cosmos were the calling card drink of the “Sex in the City” girls during the iconic TV show’s heyday, and just like fashion, everything comes back in style eventually (including drinks!) – especially when they’re upgraded. That’s why we’re so excited about our latest cocktail on the blog, the Springpolitan from our friends at the family-owned Shelter Island House in Shelter Island Heights, NY.
You already know this gorgeous inn has played host to some high-level celebs (hello, Jessica Chastain!) from our recent interview with innkeeper Janet Rogler last month, but did you also know the top-rated Tavern Restaurant onsite serves an amazing New American-style menu, complemented by handcrafted cocktails, world beers, and an expertly curated wine list? The result is an exceptional dining experience you won’t soon forget. Menus are seasonally driven, and guests can dine alfresco or fireside (depending on the weather) within the inn’s stylish surroundings.
Shelter Island House features lavish modern beach flair throughout; luxurious accommodations with spa bathrooms, chic décor, and local art; and a wealth of exceptional complimentary amenities (in addition to the restaurant) including continental breakfast, Wi-Fi, a pool, a bar, and a bakery. This boutique hotel also boasts architecture that seamlessly combines historic details with chic elegance and sophistication, plus a location close to area attractions with the beach just one block away. And of course, after a day at the beach, nothing beats a cocktail – especially the Springpolitan!
