Sweet & Slimming Love Potion Cocktail Recipe

Written by Spencer Higgs

Jump To Recipe

Chocolate hearts, soppy Hallmark cards, and an exciting spike in engagement ring sales. The excitement from Valentine’s Day must be in the air!

Though its origins lie in the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia, Valentine’s Day has been celebrated since the 5th century, and rejoiced as a day of romance from the 1300s onward. Not a bad tidbit to know in case you find yourself quelling any indignant arguments that Valentine’s Day was invented by greedy corporations hungry for post-Holidays sales. 

But I digress…   

With the day of love rooted in ancient Roman culture, it’s no wonder Valentine’s is often celebrated with fine wine and other tasty intoxicants. It’s also fitting. After all, 8-25% of you started out your relationship over some beverage or another. [1]

So to celebrate, I wanted to share my healthy, detoxifying twist on the famous Love Potion cocktail that you can sip and enjoy all year long!

What’s In A Love Potion Cocktail?

Now, there are countless variations out there, but this particular
Love Potion drink is rare in its simplicity and elegance. To retain its… je ne sais quoi, I suggest serving in a martini glass to show off the deep pink hue and subtle fruits of this festive drink. 

Not much of a mixologist? Relax, another reason I love this Love Potion cocktail recipe is that it’s deceptively simple to make, yet tastes like you’ve spent years paying your dues behind a craft cocktail bar. 

But the charm of this particular Valentine’s Day cocktail recipe is that it’s rich in detoxifying nutrients that help restore your body’s vital functions. 

Unfortunately, toxins easily build up in our bodies due to constant exposure from a variety of environmental hazards, ranging from the food we eat to the air we breathe to the materials we have around our homes. These toxins affect our bodies in both the short and long term. While we’ve developed natural detoxification methods, modern-day life confronts us with new toxins on the daily, so it’s crucial to help your body out.

The good news is, this recipe is loaded with natural detox ingredients that help give your immune system the boost it needs to expel all this dangerous buildup. 

Hey, I’ll drink to that!
