The 'Fifty Shades of Grey' hotel package craze is growing. The Heathman Hotel, located in Portland, Oregon is adding specialty cocktails to the mix in addition to their Inner Goddess package that is sure to create a buzz.

The Heathman Hotel is mentioned in the popular erotic novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" by EL James and it is the setting for some of the sexcapades between wealthy, handsome and mysterious businessman Christian Grey and the young, innocent Anastasia Steele.

The hotel already has a large scale "Charlie Tango" package which includes a helicopter ride and dinner for up to six at The Heathman's Restaurant and Bar for the high price of $2,700. Find a Christian Grey to pay up for this adventurous package and you'll be good to go.

For those who are on a tighter budget, the Heathman also offers a wallet-friendly package. Hotel guests can choose the "Inner Goddess" package during their stay. This package includes "a "beautiful white wine that Christian and Anastasia enjoy, complete with a little grey tie wrapped around the bottle neck," says general manager Chris Erickson as quoted by People. Guests can share the bottle and then head back to the bedroom to put the tie to use like Christian Grey does in the books.

Some may just want to stop the The Heathman to take some pictures of the "Fifty Shades of Grey Hotel" and to see things like elevator three and suites with a sunburst headboard, where Ana and Christian shared intimate moments in the book.

Don't forget to stop by the bar and try out the special "Fifty Shades of Gin" cocktail created by the resident bar tender. Here is the recipe if you would like to know the ingredients or you'd like to try creating it yourself.

Fifty Shades of Gin

1 oz. gin (recipe suggests Nolet's Gin)
3/4 oz. rhubarb puree (Heathman restaurant pastry chef John Gayer creates his own)
3/4 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice
1/2 oz. simple syrup
Cranberry bitters
Cava/Orosecco
Lime wheel garnish

Directions: In a shaker, combine rhubarb puree, lime juice, simple syrup and gin. Add ice and shake well. Rinse a martini glass with cranberry bitters. Strain cocktail into glass and top with sparkling wine, either Cava or Prosecco. Garnish with lime wheel or twist.

*If you can't find rhubarb puree, purchase fresh rhubarb at your local grocer or pick from your garden and add to the blender with 1/2 oz. simple syrup.

The Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy has topped best seller lists for months now. It has even broken records set by The Da Vinci Code and the Harry Potter series. Plans to turn the book into a movie are in the works.
