drinks sexFood has been recognized as an aphrodisiac for centuries – but have you ever thought about how sex drinks might boost your love life?

Not just a glass of wine to get you in the mood, but actually using known libido boosters to create sex drinks that will do more than just relax your inhibitions.

Just remember that one or two cocktails can help relax you.

More than that and the alcohol becomes counterproductive.

The key is to use natural, rather than processed, ingredients.

Sure, these take a little bit of prep, but in the end, the flavor – and the results – are worth it!

. Fresh ginger helps increase blood flow, which is great for your circulation. And since it helps increase blood flow everywhere, it’s great for your sex life!

Plus, it’s one of the most versatile ingredients when it comes to sex drinks, because you can use it in everything from tea to cocktails!

Start with ginger syrup:

Ingredients - 1 c sliced ginger, 1 c sugar, and ¾ c water.

  • Place the sugar and water in a saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Add ginger and continue to heat, bringing the syrup to a light boil.
  • Cover and remove from heat.
  • Allow to cool and steep in the covered pan for about 1 hour (or until it reaches your preferred taste).
  • Strain out the ginger and bottle.
  • Store in the refrigerator.

Once you’ve got ginger syrup, you can add that to drinks OR you can make ginger ale –

Ingredients: 1 1/2 ounces ginger simple syrup, 3 fresh mint leaves, club soda

  • Muddle the mint leaves in a tall glass.
  • Add ginger syrup and fill with soda.
  • Stir well.
  • Strain.

As with ginger syrup, you can drink ginger ale on its own, or use it as a mixer. Try it with a splash of grenadine for a sophisticated Shirley Temple, or with gin and a twist for a more grownup flavor.

Clove. Clove isn’t just for pies and potpourri. Men in China have used it for generations to help with sexual performance, and more modern research indicates small amounts of clove may even help boost testosterone levels.

Start with clove syrup:

Ingredients - 1 c unrefined sugar, 1 c water, 1/3 c whole cloves

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine all the ingredients.
  • Bring close to a boil, stirring constantly.
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Let cool at room temperature and strain into a clean bottle. Cover and keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.

Add your clove syrup to tea, or make a clove screwdriver:

Ingredients: 2 oz vodka, 4-6 oz of orange juice, 1 teaspoon of clove syrup

  • Add liquids to cocktail shaker with ice. Shake.
  • Strain over fresh ice.
  • Garnish with orange slice, if desired.

Cinnamon. While you may consider cinnamon boring or mundane, it’s anything but when used in a sex drink! Cinnamon helps with circulation, increased sensitivity, and even may help maintain blood sugar, so you’re sexual performance isn’t hindered.

Start with cinnamon syrup:

Ingredients – 6 cinnamon sticks, 1 c sugar, 1 c water

  • Mix sugar into water and boil until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Add cinnamon sticks.
  • Cover and let it sit overnight.
  • Remove cinnamon sticks, and refrigerate for up to one month (or longer in the freezer).

Add this to any beverage – tea, coffee, even hot cocoa or chocolate milk - to turn it into a sex drink OR try a Cinna-Scotch Sour:

Ingredients: 2 oz scotch, 1 oz fresh lemon juice, 1 oz cinnamon syrup, dash Angostura bitters

  • Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake.
  • Strain over fresh ice.
  • Garnish with cinnamon stick if desired.

Cayenne Pepper. Spicy is good in the bedroom, so why not in a sex drink? Cayenne helps with blood flow, and releases endorphins so you feel good, too.

Add cayenne to hot chocolate for an easy (and delicious) treat, or kick it up a notch with a nonalcoholic Pepper Pot, or an alcoholic version known as the Polynesian Pepper Pot:

Pepper Pot:

  • 4 oz Pineapple Juice
  • 1 oz Orgeat Syrup (almond syrup)
  • 3-5 dashes Tabasco Sauce
  • pinch Cayenne Pepper
  • pinch Curry Powder
  • 1 oz Lemon Juice
  • Shake pineapple juice, orgeat syrup, Tabasco, lemon juice and cayenne pepper with ice in a cocktail shaker.
  • Pour into a highball glass over fresh ice.
  • Top with curry powder and serve.

  • 1/2 oz Golden Rum
  • 4 oz Pineapple Juice
  • 1/2 oz Orgeat Syrup - almond syrup

  • pinch Cayenne Pepper
  • pinch Curry Powder
  • Shake all ingredients, except curry powder, in a cocktail shaker with ice.
  • Strain into a highball glass over fresh ice.
  • Top with curry powder and serve.

Cardamom. Ancient Indian medicine, known as Ayurveda, recommends cardamom because it boosts libido AND increases blood flow, specifically to the genitals. If you’re unfamiliar with this spicy, tangy, sweet little seed, you’re in for a wonderful surprise.

Try this take on a classic Moscow Mule, with a cardamom twist. Plus, it’s got ginger, so this is a two-for-one sex drink!

Start with cardamom ginger ale:

Ingredients –

  • 2 teaspoons of finely grated ginger
  • 5 cardamom pods
  • 1/2 cup evaporated cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup sparkling water
  • Peel and finely grate the ginger.
  • Crack open the cardamom pods and grind the seeds using a spice grinder or mortar and pestle. Set aside.
  • Add sugar and water to a small saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Add ginger and ground cardamom and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  • Once the syrup has cooled, strain through a fine mesh strainer. Transfer to a large jar or bottle and add sparkling water.
  • Chill.

And now it’s ready to use in a Moscow Mule –

Ingredients -

  • 2 oz vodka
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 4 oz cardamom ginger ale
  • Combine vodka, lime juice, and cardamom ginger ale. Stir.
  • Pour over crushed ice.
  • Garnish with lime wheel and pinch of ground cardamom, if desired.

Basil. Since basil is an aphrodisiac, you can certainly just keep using it in sauces and salads – but isn’t it more fun to mix it up into a sex drink? However you eat it, basil will help with blood flow and provide a sensual warmth throughout your body.

Try this healthier – and sexier – version of a bloody mary:

  • Strain over fresh ice.
  • Garnish with fresh basil, if desired.
