A 'Blurred Lines' Grammy Cocktail Recipe
Michael Kraus

Having a Grammy viewing party? Then you need a specialty cocktail to do it up right.

We asked the mix masters of Beacher’s Madhouse at Las Vegas’s MGM Grand to whip up a drink inspired by Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” (up for the Record of the Year award), and they came up with this inspired gem.

The Blurred Lines
Makes 1 serving

1½ oz. vodka
¼ oz. coffee liqueur (like Kahlúa)
¼ oz. hazelnut liqueur (like Frangelico)
Ice
Soda water

Mix the first three ingredients in a cocktail shaker, then strain into a rocks glass. Add ice and finish off with soda water. No garnish needed. Now head to the dance floor!

Check out this cocktail and other sneak previews of this year’s Grammy Awards in the latest issue of PEOPLE, on stands now.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

As someone who is a victim of rape, this song is repulsive. Every time I hear it come on the radio I have to change the station really quickly, because it starts to take me back to a very dark place that I have worked very hard to get away from.
It is all about rape, and how even if a girl says NO, what she really means is yes… this is total B******T. If a girl says NO, she means NO. That they would make a cocktail to ‘celebrate’ this disgusting piece of garbage is the lowest of low.

WTF on

I agree with the posting below. This is repulsive. Hollywood pretends to be such advocates of the granola variety chic support of women, but none of it is true. Just try reciting the lyrics of this song to yourself in the mirror. And Miley got all the flack for this……………………………WTF?
