The menu at the Cosmopolitan’s hip Holsteins continues to evolve, but the burger-centric eatery’s “bam-boozled” shakes—spiked ice cream treats featuring nostalgic flavors like cookies & cream and s’mores—will always be central to its success. After all, burgers and shakes are natural running mates.
Your go-to might be the Drunken Monkey, with its hazelnut liqueur, bananas, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and banana Laffy Taffy, or the decadent, vodka-doused A-Chocolypse Now, but a new seasonal specialty has arrived to steal your affections. The Candy Cane Bam-Boozled Shake combines rich vanilla ice cream and peppermint schnapps with crushed candy canes, peppermint glaze, vanilla frosting and whipped cream. Ridiculously festive might be an understatement. With this Christmastime treat, you can feel like a kid again and get a little buzz going at the same time. Holsteins at the Cosmopolitan, 702-698-7940; Sunday-Thursday 11 a.m.-midnight, Friday & Saturday 11 a.m.-2 a.m.
