Despite being called “some mutant spawn of The Bachelor,” as well as other unfavorable things, Fifty Shades of Grey still managed to be a hit at the box office, with Americans forking over $81.7 million to spend part of their Valentine’s Day weekend watching it. But if you’re itching to throw even more money at the BDSM-light phenomenon, there’s a $50 cocktail with your name on it.
On Valentine’s Day, the Old Homestead Steakhouse in New York City started offering up their “Fifty Shades of Grey” martini with a very appropriate $50 price tag. According to the LA Times, “This five-vodka martini (Ketel One Citroen, Chopin Potato, Double Cross, Titos, Purity) comes with three raw oysters, edible handcuffs and panties. And wrapped around the stem of the martini glass is a blindfold and a flogger.”
Possibly even more outrageous than the price is that the restaurant was able to sell 50 of the drinks before having to eighty-six the exotic cocktail after running out of the edible handcuffs and panties. (Story of my life!)
