Peel Liqueurs and Onyx Moonshine paired up in cocktails during a February segment on WTNH TV-8’s “CT Style” for Valentine’s Day, including a “Fifty Shades of Grey”-themed cocktail in time for the film’s opening. The on-camera guest was Tyler DeVecchis, master mixologist at Glastonbury’s Rooftop 120. DeVecchis demonstrated three cocktails using the two Connecticut-made spirits: Sex a Peel, made with Peel Cremoncello, Onyx Moonshine and a splash of cranberry; One Love, made with Bananacello, Onyx Moonshine and chocolate syrup; and The Charlie Tango, billed as “Connecticut’s Official Fifty Shades of Grey Cocktail” named after character C.T. Grey’s helicopter, the Charlie Tango. The namesake cocktail debuted at the early premiere of the film at Spotlight Theaters in Hartford.
