Adam & Eve Hibiscus Martini Recipe–perfect for a romantic occasion

Wild Hibiscus Martini

Even the name of this cocktail evokes sensuality… and maybe a sense of danger. But we think the presentation is really what takes this one over the top. Wild Hibiscus brand hibiscus flowers are among our favorite aphrodisiac ingredients. They’re delicious, exotic and beautiful all at once.

amaro amore cocktailCoffee is among our favorite aphrodisiacs and when we learned that August is Coffee Month we thought nothing could be better to celebrate this aphrodisiac month thank a cold, invigorating coffee cocktail.

Amaros are Italian liqueurs made from a combination of herbs, often blended with citrus and a kiss of sugar in a neutral spirit. We think layering the caffeine and dark, earthy flavor of espresso with the herbal and sweet notes of the amaro raises the aphrodisiac bar on the cocktail category. Read more
