The literature: EL James’ FIFTY SHADES OF GREY
The libation: Have your cat o’ nine (cock)tails handy - we’re going in.
We know it’s your first time, so we won’t be too rough on you.
We’re going to instruct you on how to make a Cherry Smash, so listen carefully. Muddle a few maraschino cherries at the bottom of a rocks glass. Don’t be shy, really get in there and go to town on them. Add ice, for the shock of it. In a cocktail shaker, shake 1oz Jack Daniels, 1oz cherry juice, 0.5oz amaretto, and 0.5oz ginger brandy (for spice). Pour over the ice and cherries, and then top with cherry cola (something something Lana Del Rey something) and stir.
In this Red Room, you’ll be feeling no pain.
Or, for those of you who’re a little more experienced, our friends over at learningmixology have suggested iced Earl Gray tea mixed with bruised peach simple syrup and bourbon, garnished with hand-slapped mint leaves. We’ll give that our spank of approval.

Getting ready for BYOB Toronto at The Powerplant Powerball this Thursday. I’m catering it maybe?
#TBT: Watch Jamie Dornan discuss his roles in The Fall and Fifty Shades of Grey at the British Academy Television Awards earlier in the year.
5SOS at the iHeartRadio Theater in New York on July 21st, 2014.
SO the time has come to release my first ever single, Happy Little Pill. I have spent the large majority of the last few years of my life on this website, hanging with you guys, that it only felt right to premiere it a day or two early on here haha
I wrote this song during a bit of a rough time for someone super close to me, and for myself, and it still means as much to me as the day i wrote it, and i’m still as in love with it as the day i wrote it (which is rare for me!!). I couldn’t be prouder to be giving it to you guys today :’) Thanks for sticking around for so long, for supporting me and other online talent, and for now listening! I have the best and craziest and most committed audience in the world, and I love you all endlessly.
Happy Little Pill is available everywhere July 25, along with the preorder for TRXYE.
TRXYE is out August 15.
