Sweet V-Day Cocktails from SomruS

0

Happy Valentine’s Day! This year, we wanted to share some sweet cocktail recipes from SomruS (www.somrus.com), should you be thinking of creating some sexually inspiring cocktails for the big day!  These can all be found in the brand’s Soma-Sutra recipe book available online.

The liqueur itself has many aphrodisiacs:

Rose: Everyone knows how indispensable roses are in romance. The very scent of the essential oil from the flower can arouse you..

Cardamom: In the Arabian Nights, you can read of the use of this ancient spice as an aphrodisiac. Cardamom is warming and pungent, and can increase blood flow, which probably accounts for its aphrodisiac properties.

Almonds: The aroma of almonds supposedly arouses passion in females — or so thought the poets and scribes of bygone eras. French writer Alexandre Dumas dined on almond soup every night.

Saffron: Worth its weight in gold, Cleopatra was said to bathe in saffron-infused water before initiating any important intimate rendezvous. Saffron’s reputed longstanding aphrodisiac properties revolve around Crocin, a natural carotenoid chemical and potent anti-oxidant found in saffron threads.

Pistachio: In central Asia and India, it is believed that pistachios arouse sexuality and cleanse the blood.
