Sexy Cocktails To Get You In The Mood

Sexy Cocktails

We’ve all heard of foods and dishes that contain sexually stimulating properties, but did you know that cocktails can also work as aphrodisiacs?

Drinking a cocktail may seem counter-intuitive for arousal given that alcohol is a depressant, and there are a plethora of beverages–ones typically used to make alcoholic drinks–that also suppress your libido, such as soda, according to But mixologists have found a way to combine common sexually boosting ingredients into delicious, and some rather out-of-the ordinary cocktails. And despite science pretty much proving that alcohol inhibits performance in the bedroom, a study conducted by showed that 79 percent of the participants actually enjoy sex when they drink beforehand.

Without further ado, here are some of the sexy concoctions that you should sample with your partner:

Chai-Infused Sweet Vermouth

In Eastern medicine, ginger is widely known as a libido booster that can literally heat you up. Like ginger, cinnamon also has both medicinal and sensual powers. Together with cloves, black tea, and cardamom, they make the flavor profile of chai, which will be used to elevate the taste of the sweet vermouth. Expert mixologist Dushan Zaric explains that, “The resulting flavor is so sexy that you will feel like you have been kissed by a beautiful belly dancer,” and is a key ingredient for one of his other stimulating cocktails called the Matahari.


1 in-long piece of ginger, coarsely chopped
8 cloves
8 green cardamom pods
1 cinnamon stick
2 tbsp chai
2 L Cinzano sweet vermouth


Heat the first four ingredients in a pan. Add the tea and then 2 cups of vermouth to begin with, and then boil for 2 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and after letting it cool completely, mix the rest of the vermouth in. Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth, then pour it into a bottle and store at room temperature.
