Fifty Shades of Grey - Wine, Cocktails and Recipes

You know you want it. The cocktails, that is. Cheers to the latest literary obsession.

Kate brings home a bottle of champagne to celebrate exams are over. A nice bottle of Piper Heidsieck Brut from Champagne, France is perfect; 92 PTS WINE SPECTATOR. Piper-Heidsieck Brut NV is firm and lightly toasty; offers ripe flavors of quince paste, candied orange peel, grilled nuts and ground ginger; fine balance; mouthwatering finish. #fiftyshadesofgrey

Dinner with the Grey's: A lovely Cab from Washington. Ch. Ste Michelle Cabernet Cold Creek, '08; 93 PTS, CELLAR SELECTION, WINE ENTHUSIAST. The '08 Ch Ste Michelle Cold Creek is perhaps the most ageworthy, perfectly structured Cabernet in the state; tight, dense, cassis-laden body. #fiftyshadesofgrey

Hendrick's and Tonic. With cucumber spear. Just the way Christian likes it. #fiftyshadesofgrey

Christian and Ana enjoy Pasta Alle Vongole and a crisp glass of Sancerre at the breakfast bar in the kitchen. #fiftyshadesofgrey

Nothing but the best in the first class lounge. MOET & CHANDON IMPERIAL - 90 PTS WILFRED WONG. Pretty fine and quite alluring, the smooth and layered Moet & Chandon Imperial is an easy-drinking Champagne with fine fruitness; layered in the aftertaste. #fiftyshadesofgrey

Chablis. Perfectly paired with a Chicken Caesar Salad. Joseph Drouhin Chablis Domain Vaudon Chablis, France ‘09; 90 PTS WILFRED WONG. Surprisingly rich, the focused '09 Joseph Drouhin Chablis Domaine Vaudon delivers it all; some chalk, loads of ripe fruit and crisp acidity; frisky aftertaste. #fiftyshadesofgrey

The "exam" is over. Time for lunch with Christian. Chicken Caesar Salad and a Glass of Chablis with the lovely sounds of Villa Lobos, an aria from Bachianas Brasileiras in the background. Sounds normal to us. #fiftyshadesofgrey

A little bubbly to celebrate graduation and the new apartment for Kate and Ana. Compliments of Christian. Bollinger Special Cuvee Brut Champagne, France 93 PTS WINE SPECTATOR. The Bollinger Special Cuvee Brut, has a lovely balance; mineral and toast notes; flavors of quince, green pear, white peach and verbena; firm acidity. Served in a tea cup. #fiftyshadesofgrey

THE FIRST DATE - Jolivet Sancerre'10, from France Pascal Jolivet Sancerre, 10, 90 PTS WINE SPECTATOR. The '10 Jolivet Sancerre has a bony and mouthwatering style, with lots of flint framing the lime, chive and fleur de sel notes; shows great cut on the finish. #fiftyshadesofgrey
