Did you know that pomegranate, olive oil, strawberries, and blueberries are all ingredients that help heighten libido? These all sound like better aphrodisiacs than other things people often list, like raw oysters (ick).

love potions - cocktail recipes for Valentine's Day

 

Amoretti (disclosure – PR firm provided these recipes to me) shared two fun cocktails that will be perfect for Valentine’s Day with some of these tasty aphrodisiacs in them.

A Buzzin’ Roses Cocktail

  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1.5 oz Amoretti Premium Pomegranate Martini Mix
  • 1/2 tsp Amoretti Premium Rose Syrup

Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Strain over fresh ice. Garnish with pomegranate arils (the seeds) and a rose petal (organic/safe for consumption).

A Hopeless Romantic Cocktail

  • 1.5 oz tequila
  • 1.5 oz Amoretti Premium Strawberry Martini Mix
  • 1/4 oz Amoretti Premium Aged Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/4 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/4 oz Triple Sec

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Strain over fresh ice. Alternatively, blend 6 ounces of ice and other ingredients on high for 15 seconds. Run a slice of lime around the rim of your glass and dip in salt. Pour blended mixture into prepared glass.

Don’t these both sound delicious? Hubby if you are reading this I would like at least one of these drinks on Valentine’s Day please!

Which drink do you think sounds best?
