Cocktail Recipe: Sexual Chocolate – A Natural Aphrodisiac

The Aphrodisiac: It’s right there in the title! Both chocolate (“the food of the gods” according to the Aztecs) and strawberries (red, heart-shaped) have long been reputed to touch specific parts of the brain in just the right way. And they’re sensual as hell. The communal act of dipping fruit (or marshmallows or what have you) in the chocolate is a turn-on itself.


  • 8 oz Somrus Indian cream liqueur
  • L.A. Burdick Dark Hot Chocolate
  • 1/2 cup Strawberries


Using Somrus in place of milk, heat the liqueur and drinking chocolate in a small pot over low-medium heat. Do not allow to boil, stir regularly. Add chocolate mix and strawberries together and blend carefully (hot liquids expand quickly in a blender — allow heat to escape through the top) until smooth. Add to pot and warm again. Serve in a “sharing bowl,” and garnish with edible flowers and dippable fruit slices.
