What cocktail is the best aphrodisiac?

A bit of a daring suggestion: an oyster cocktail.

A bit of a daring suggestion: an oyster cocktail.

As we all know alcoholic drinks can be a great aphrodisiac. Actually booze  is the reason that even the ugliest guys on this planet sometimes wake up next to the hottest women. And everybody who has ever watched Sex and the City (of course you were just passing by, when the batteries of your remote control were done, we get it) knows that among alcoholic drinks the most effective aphrodisiac is a cocktail. But which one is the best? To answer this question we give you all the opportunity to send in your suggestions. Not just because we’re lazy. We are just not real experienced cocktail mixers. And since some of our followers are, we’d like to learn from you. After this we hope to have the ultimate list of cocktails of seduction.

So are there any rules? Well very little. You just have to name the ingredients (and amounts of them) of your cocktail and the way to prepare it. Also descrbe in a few words why your cocktail is sure to get you laid. If you want you can also send us multiple recipes. To help you get started we’ll give you some possible ingredients that are known aphrodisiacs. For the rest you can use all kinds of booze, bitters, juices and fruits.

Possible ingredients that are believed to be aphrodisiacs:
Chile peppers
Pine nuts

Got any ideas yet? Of course instead of almonds you can also use almond liqueur, or instead of chocolate you can use chocolate ice cream. Please send us your favorite cocktail recipes. If it’s your own finding don’t forget to give the drink a name. You can send your cocktails to our e-mail adress Lordsofthedrinks@hotmail.com. or in the comment box below. Love to hear from you soon.

  1. Hello Gents!

    I don’t know if you’ve ever attended an American Cinco de Mayo Party, but when the tequila gets flowing, people get REAL friendly. The Margarita is the best delivery method for tequila. Plus, it’s sweet and salty, which get tongues wagging and lips licked. 😉
    And I’m convinced that one of the reasons my wife *is* my wife is because of the Margarita.

    To ensure that pants will be flying off, boot the Triple Sec in favor of Grand Marnier in your Margarita; aka:

    “The Cadillac Margarita”
    1 ounce lime juice -Use fresh Key Lime juice for a refreshing bev, use Rose’s Sweetened for a sweet treat.
    1 ounce Grand Marnier
    1.5 ounces Silver/Blanco Tequila (the more expensive, the better – Think Don Julio or Don Eduardo)
    Add ice to your shaker. Add all ingredients to the shaker. Shake until your hands hurt form the cold, then shake for ten seconds longer . Strain and serve Up in a chilled cocktail glass rimmed with salt. Garnish with a slice or wedge of lime.

    It’s a classy drink that’s worked for me!

  3. I have heard that oysters are an aphrodisiac; NZ is a great place for the Bluff oyster. Sadly I report that the last time I bought a dozen, only ten worked. I have seen oysters incorporated in cocktails and shots, whether the alcoholic boost would ensure that all twelve worked, I can’t say. Bit like adding pure nitrobenzene directly into the carburetor. If you can avoid the flames the motor starts.

    As to a concoction of my own… I’m not sure. In my youth, misguided as it was, we called various drinks ‘legopeners’; unfortunately they also brought on a severe case of brewers droop, so it was difficult to say whether or not they were.

    The Cadillac Margarita above sounds interesting.

    When I was of half a mind, which I might add that in my dotage has become a permanent state, to impress the ladies I always fell back (not the cause of alcohol) on liqueurs that sort of sneak up on you before you know it. Kahlua and Tia Maria were always favs, and a Grasshopper, despite its Crickety (Aussies love that game, can’t play it, but they love it) name was a good standby; 2xCreme de Menthe, 1xCreme de Cacao and fresh cream, shaken over ice and served. Have to stick to those proportions otherwise the drink looks like mud and girls don’t like playing in the mud. Girls also like that orangey tang of Cointreau or Triple Sec, and the blue Curaçao is always a tease.

    For a Christmassy conquest, Amaretto dell’ Orso with its marzipan after taste is always a good bet.

    Nothing original, but necessity is the mother of invention.



    • Ah yes you have some very nice sneaky drinks. I know for a fact they do the trick too. Still we are looking for cocktail recipes. If you get some good fresh oysters again, I suggest you check out what happens when mixing them in a glass. I saw a recipe (Oyster shooter) with vodka and lime, but maybe you can experiment a little with Brazilian drinks? Just an idea. Anyway, thanks a lot for your comment.


  4. Honestly, I think the real key is to make something delicious that just doesn’t taste like alcohol. My favourite is a Day in the Shade- coconut rum, pineapple, cranberry juice.
