These sexy dinner recipes are great choices to pair with my list of Fifty Ways to Feed Your Lover. This list offers ways you can heighten the pleasure of a romantic meal from feeding your lover small bites by hand to painting with chocolate and everything in between. Of course, you need food to keep the temptation going. I list some quick cooking ideas in the list but if you want to make something a little more ambitious, you’ll need a recipe. And that’s where this list of romantic dinner ideas comes in.
You can use these recipes with some or all of the 50 ways in my list or just start cooking with these romantic dinner ideas. The recipes I’ve selected here are layered with aphrodisiac ingredients and are great for sharing with your lover. You can pair them up for a multi-course romantic dinner.
If you don’t feel comfortable enough with your cooking skills, you can try them out one at a time to help make any meal sexier. I’ve included recipes for meat lovers, cheese lovers and even vegans to help spark desire, whatever your lover’s food preference.
Sexy cocktails to feed your lover
For starters, here’s the margarita recipe I mention in my list of 50 Ways To Feed Your Lover. Unlike your ordinary Margarita, this cocktail recipe for lovers is made with Agavero, a tequila blended with damiana flower. In some cultures, damiana is known to stir the fires of passion between lovers.
Lover’s Margarita Cocktail
1 ounce Agavero Tequila
1 ounce 1800 Reposado
Splash fresh lime juice
Pour over ice, garnish with lime wedge. Salt rim if desired. I recommend doubling the recipe and using two straws.
More cocktails for seduction
The Cupid’s Kiss
This champagne cocktail is dressed up with homemade berry syrup. A light and not too-boozy alternative to a spirits-based cocktail, it’s a great drink to get your evening started without the risk of overindulgence. Get this Champagne cocktail recipe.
Tia Maria Espresso Martini
This sexy martini packs quite an aphrodisiac punch from cold brew coffee liqueur. It’s a great drink to awaken your senses after a mind-numbing day at work. Just be careful to drink in moderation since this cocktail packs the double kick of caffeine and alcohol. Get this cold brew martini recipe.
Nibbles for two
Diane’s sexy hummus
This vegan hummus recipe is my starter for a Greek-inspired Valentine’s Day dinner. But you can use it any time as a sexy snack to serve your lover. Get this sexy hummus recipe.
Cheese with Wine-Soaked Cherries
What could be sexier than serving your lover nibbles of drunken cherries? Try serving those sexy cherries with cheese! (Did you know that cheese is an aphrodisiac food?) Get the drunken cherry recipe.
Sexy recipes for a main course
Grilled Bison Steak with Easy Herb Marinade
Bison makes a healthy and delicious alternative to beef. In fact, it makes the list of the best foods for men’s sexual health. So enjoy this sexy steak with your sweetie and know that it’s supporting your sex life. Get the steak recipe.
Poached Salmon with Rosé Wine Sauce
In the 50 Ways to Feed Your Lover list, I recommend a simple white fish preparation. If you’re feeling more adventurous, you could try this romantic poached salmon dish served with a rosé wine sauce. Get the poached salmon recipe.
Easy Carrot Top Pesto
Pesto is always a great vegetarian option for a sexy dinner for two. (Nearly every single ingredient used to make pesto is historically considered an aphrodisiac.) This version of pesto uses carrot greens, those tops of the carrots we usually through away. A delicious variation on a classic pasta sauce, it’s great for your taste buds and your sex life. Get the pesto recipe.
Tips for making a sexy dinner a success
The most important thing you can do when planning a dinner to seduce your partner is to consider what they like to eat. Trying something new can spark a sense of adventure but it will only work if you know the person you’ve made the meal for likes the ingredients. I recommend either staying in your comfort zone or checking in with your partner before you plan your menu. The recipes I’ve suggested above give you a lot of variety. But you can also check out my list of 50 Ways to Feed Your Lover for some additional menu ideas.
Remember to keep the meal fairly light. All the recipes listed above, (with the possible exception of the cheese), are fairly light and healthy yet they still feel indulgent. You want to feel good after eating if you plan to use dinner as a prelude to games of love. Lighter foods will help you feel energized.
