How can a cocktail with this name not lead to success right?!? The first girl that doesn’t like chocolate, the main ingredient of this drink, probably still hasn’t been born. Chocolate is also a major aphrodisiac – just like cherries – and in combination with alcohol you have a dangerous weapon on your hands.
1.5 parts wild cherry infused vodka
1.5 part coconut flavored vodka
1.5 part dark chocolate liqueur
1 splash of chocolate syrup
cocoa powder
Preparation: Put the vodka’s, chocolate and chocolate syrup in an iced shaker and shake it vigorously. Pour in a chocolate rimmed cocktail glass and add cocoa to the rim to finish this drink off.

How can you resist the alluring scent of cardamom?  Cardamom is a nicely aromatic spice. In many cultures and mystic circles it is viewed as an intensely powerful aphrodisiac.  These ingredients combined turn this sophisticated drink into a romantic soft pink shade.
