Fifty Shades of Grey Cocktails

Having a Fifty Shades of Grey viewing party this weekend? Hosting a Fifty Shades of Grey themed sex toy party? Here are some fabulous cocktails courtesy of Sother Teague, Beverage Director at New York’s Amor y Amargo, as published in the 2012 “Fifty Shades” magazine.

Adventurous, yet sophisticated. 1.5 oz blended scotch whiskey .5 oz islay malt whiskey 1 tsp cane sugar syrup 2 dashes of Bittermens Mole Bitters 1 dash of Bittermens Hellfire Shrub Using the same kind of glass used for an Old Fashioned drink, build over ice and garnish with an orange twist

I’ll be honest I had to look up Hellfire Shrub.


Twitchy Palm. Steady... with elements of danger. 2 oz Grey Goose 1 oz Cointreau .5 oz fresh lime juice 1.5 tsp sugar-free orange marmalade Shake all ingredients with ice and couble strain into a martini glass. Flame an orange peel over the drink and drop it in

Tip: don’t flame the orange unless you’re a pro. Just garnish with citrus.


The Silk Knot. Deep and complex, just ilke Christian. 1 oz Bulleit Rye Whiskey 1 oz Green Chartreuse liquer 1 oz sweet vermouth .5 oz white creme de cacao Stir all ingredients over ice to chill. Pour over fresh ice in an Old Fashioned glass.

Fun fact: bondage rope is very rarely silk, but instead nylon, cotton, or hemp.


Sex on a Boat. As good as a spanking... 1.5 oz Flor de Cana 4-Year White Rum .75 oz peach nectar .75 oz pineapple juice (fresh, unsweetened is best) .75 oz mango nectar .75 ox Lemon Hart 151 Pour ingredients into a tall glass and fill with pebble ice. Then add final ingredient.

Yes, that’s a mistake. The “final ingredient” is one that’s listed.


Rich in color, with a flavorful bite. 1 oz Campari 1 oz reposado tequila .5 oz sweet vermouth .5 oz Patron Citronage 2 dashes grapefruit bitters Stir all ingredients over ice and then strain onto fresh ice. Garnish with a grapefruit twist

Ohh, tequila… Yes, this could definitely end in pain the next morning so nurse this one!


Remember to help your guests drink responsibly, as in all 50 states, you could be the one in handcuffs (and not in a fun way) if they drive home after too many!

Better yet, pregame at home and take a limo to the theater!
