Forget that love potions and aphrodisiacs aren’t real. Oh man, did I just blow the lead? I was going to tell you how to make a simple love potion that will alter your love life forever. But I think we both really know it doesn’t work like that. You can eat as many oysters, chili peppers, avocado, chocolate, bananas, honey, coffee, watermelon as you want but it’s more likely to give you a stomach ache than uncontrollable desire. Here is what we know for sure, alcohol can relax you and lower your inhibitions so it’s as close to an actual aphrodisiac as we’re going to get.
Our recipe for a simple love potion cocktail is just that, quick and easy. Using only 3 ingredients, you can pour and serve this delicious champagne cocktail in under 5 minutes.
Simple Love Potion Cocktail Recipe
1 oz. Chilled Cointreau
2 oz. Chilled Champagne
Strawberries for garnish
In a champagne flute add 1 ounce of cointreau, then top with 2 ounces chilled champagne. Garnish with a heart-shaped strawberry.
To make a heart-shaped strawberry slice a strawberry into thirds. Using the end pieces, take a paring knife and cut a “V” shape at the top. Sometimes this is enough to make a great heart-shape. If yours still isn’t hearty enough, use the paring knife to trim the outside edges of the strawberry into a more uniform heart.
