The aphrodisiac power of cocktails
Spirits are historically aphrodisiac because they lower inhibitions. But the danger with hard liquor is, of course, overindulgence. By blending spirits into cocktails, we limit their powers to send us into the no-go zone.
We love cocktails because the offer an opportunity to layer in additional aphrodisiac ingredients. But great cocktails can get complicated to make. And we don’t want you slaving away over a drink instead of lavishing your attention on something much more important, like your lover. (Or with a potential paramour.) So we’re always looking for ideas for an easy aphrodisiac cocktail. And Veev, one of our favorite spirit companies, knows how to deliver.
What is Veev?
“La Dolce Veev” is a tart, refreshing drink that’s layered with aphrodisiac ingredients, starting with the base spirit. Veev is a white spirit blended with acai berry–a superfood aphrodisiac made popular a few years ago. Acai is an antioxidant-rich rainforest fruit. Veev uses the fruit to naturally flavor their spirit (which is basically a winter wheat vodka). In this cocktail, they’ve added a hint of aphrodisiac mint and sweetened the drink with a kiss of aphrodisiac honey. The result is a fairly simple, vibrant cocktail filled with aphrodisiac promise!
This simple cocktail combines the aphrodisiac of the acai fruit found in Veev (a white spirit), with the freshness of citrus juice and hints of honey and mint.
