The Curse of Aphrodite {a strawberry bourbon cocktail}

Who needs chocolate covered strawberries for Valentine’s Day when you can have this strawberry bourbon cocktail instead? Actually – scratch that. You should have both. It’s a day of indulgence and love so why not allow yourself some extra treats.

The Curse of Aphrodite - a strawberry bourbon cocktail with a hint of spice

So, the idea behind this strawberry bourbon cocktail is that it’s an aphrodisiac. Strawberries, honey and chilis are all supposed to be aphrodisiac foods for one reason or another. Bourbon might not be on that list, but it should be. So it’s in the drink.

Since it’s a day for couples, the recipe serves 2. However, if your loved one doesn’t care for bourbon, just drink them both yourself. They can sip on wine instead. It will be okay.
