By now you’ve probably watched the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer more than you care to admit. But if the steamy clip didn’t quite satisfy your insatiable appetite for all things Mr. Grey, we’ve got a distraction — in the form of alcohol.

We rounded up our favorite appropriately named cocktails — an extra-dirty martini, a pomegranate Sex on the Beach and a sultry crimson vodka drink we call the Red Room of Pain — to hold you over until the movie’s February 2015 release.

The folks over at blog Eat Boutique mixed up the classic olive-brine martini with the emphasis on the dirty, just the way Christian likes it. Make sure you shake with passion.

The pomegranate Sex on the Beach, courtesy of blog Santa Barbara Chic, is both sweet and sassy. Warning: If consuming more than one, do not operate machinery (or handcuffs).

And despite the name, no pain is caused by the decadent Red Room of Pain, a creation from The London NYC that we’ve renamed for this historic movie occasion. Just proceed with caution if donning white lingerie.

Whip (pun intended) them up for a date night or just to drink while watching the trailer again. No judgments here.
