Have a special date coming up? A crush you'd like to seduce? Why not try a modern love potion? These magical elixirs are steeped in legend and no one knows that better than home brewer extraordinaire Norse Hutchens.
Hutchens has years of experience concocting wine and spirits and helping others do the same through his DIY kits. Now, he's making an even bigger contribution to the cocktail scene with the Aphrodisia Love Potion Cocktail Kit, which is intended to liven up your favorite spirit.
Here's a pretty convincing description of the product:
"Its ingredients have been carefully researched and selected based on their use in traditional love potions, as well as for their invigorating and aphrodisiacal qualities. Follow the simple instructions to infuse your favorite spirit with rose hips, elder flowers, paradise seeds, and raw honey for a potion that's potent on its own, or as a secret ingredient in cocktails."
While the DIY love potion kit can't promise "instantly love-struck crushes" it would make a killer gift or a nice additon to a cocktail party or romantic dinner. Don't you think? Find it here for $42.
