If you haven't been swept up by the Fifty Shades of Grey frenzy yet, chance are you will be at some point, even if you never read the book. The world seems obsessed with this sexy novel, and with the buzz about the movie coming in at deafening levels, it's safe to say the obsession isn't going to fade anytime soon. So whether you're a fan or not, you might as well prepare yourself ... with a nice stiff drink.
In the interest of celebrating the book, toasting to romantic revivals it's said to be sparking, and just making the whole thing easier to swallow (sorry) if you're hesitant to pick the book up, I've concocted three Fifty Shades of Grey-inspired cocktails -- the Red Room of Pain, a Twitchy Palm, and a Kinky Fuckery on the Rocks. Read on for the recipes.
