Liquid Aphrodisiac

 

I’ve heard it a million times. “I don’t like the taste of water.” And with that comment off the person goes to grab a soda, juice or whatever taste it is they do like. Of course, they’re abandoning the possibility that water could be made tasty with a few minor adjustments. But let’s face it, those people aren’t so much anti-water as they are pro-drink favorites.

Looking for something else tasty to drink? Try my recipe for Organic Hot Chocolate.

Nonetheless, this morning I was sitting here lamenting my late discovery of the food blogging event Sugar High Friday when I started cooking up ideas. Since this month’s theme was aphrodisiacs, I researched a bit on the subject and found out that there are many foods that fall into that category – chocolate, honey, ginger, etc. I romanced the idea of a late submission of my own special Aphrodite’s Ultimate Brownie, but ultimately decided to hold off and surprise my husband with those on Valentine’s Day.

Still, I was intrigued about what could be created using these mythical ingredients. Then it came to me: what about liquid desire, or rather a concoction of ingredients with aphrodisiac properties. So here it is, and it’s yummy.
