Fifty Shades Freed Paired With Three Olives Vodka Black & Blue
When Fifty Shades of Grey hit the bookshelves, women are crazy for it. That craze help put the books on the big screen.
As I watched the first movie, I giggled like a school girl the whole time mainly because I thinking how awesome it would be to have a kinky and good-looking billionaire chasing me. There was nothing particularly sexy about the movie, since it’s clear that Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey) and Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) barely have any chemistry.
The last movie, Freed, hits the movie theaters on Valentine’s Day to wrap up the trilogy. So far the movies have been “meh”. Maybe the third time’s the charm. Either way, these movie have become a part of Valentine’s Day for better or worse. Who doesn’t like campy BDSM from time to time?
The best thing that came out of 50 Shades is that it opened up a conversation about BDSM. It’s perfectly okay to be a bit kinky in the boudoir. In fact couples that get some BDSM in, tend to be closer. Takes some trust to let someone tie you up or tie you down if you know what I’m saying.
If you are going to see Freed, make the night complete with a kinky drink called The Black and Blue. It sounds a little naughty, but goes down nice. The secret sexy ingredient is the Three Olives Cherry Vodka. Smells like sweet cherry on the nose, but flirts with the palate with tastes of floral and fruit.
This drink is perfect before or after the movie. If you really want to be adventurous, put this drink in a flask then strap to your thigh, have ready for when the time is right.
