The Aphrodisiac--a cocktail for lovers

The Aphrodisiac – a pomegranate cocktail for lovers

A romantic, pomegranate martini

Diva Dish with Diane Brown

I created this cocktail for lovers as a part of an entire Greek-inspired menu for date night, Valentine’s Day or your favorite romantic occasion. The dinner is dedicated to the Greek God of Love. And it obviously needs a cocktail worthy of Eros.

This crimson red martini is built around the flavor of pomegranate. And pomegranate is one of the world’s most legendary aphrodisiacs. Learn more about the aphrodisiac history of pomegranate. Beware that it is a vodka based cocktail and one that goes down very easily. Too many of these drinks will inhibit performance later.

Best to enjoy it with food. This cocktail for lovers is only one part of a multi-dish, aphrodisiac experience. Read more about Diane’s inspiration to create this menu of love.
