If you're one of the millions of people who went to see "Fifty Shades of Grey" this weekend, with its countless scenes of bondage and kinky foreplay, chances are you're in need of a stiff drink, and a cold shower. The Old Homestead Steakhouse in New York City is hoping it can help with at least one of the two.
The Old Homestead, known for its outrageous menus, including a $35,000 Thanksgiving package and $4,900 foie gras and caviar-smothered Super Bowl chicken wings, served a $50 "Fifty Shades of Grey" martini on Valentine's Day.
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.
According to Old Homestead's mixologist Emily Soto, who created the cocktail, the bar managed to serve 50 drinks before they ran out of edible lingerie and edible handcuffs.
"It pulls you in and takes control after your first sip," said Soto in a statement. "Then you're unable to resist."
The restaurant plans on making the drink a permanent menu item, but you may want to call before you head over there. The restaurant is waiting for its next shipment of edible panties and handcuffs. That should be a fun conversation.
It would be really awkward if you got edible undies stuck in your teeth. Follow me on Twitter @Jenn_Harris_
