What can you do to win a heart and love on this Valentine’s Day? You may try to serve a special drink. A special concoction with the magic nine ingredients. You can make it yourself and present it in two tall cocktail glasses, well chilled and decorated with some fresh strawberries.

Love Potion no 9 Drink:

  • 1 cup of sweet red wine
  • 9 basil or mint leaves
  • 9 red rose petals
  • 9 cloves
  • 9 apple seeds
  • 9 drops vanilla essence
  • 9 teaspoons strawberry juice
  • 9 teaspoons apple juice
  • 9 small pieces of ginseng root.

Put all ingredients in a pot to boiling point.  Let cool and chilled overnight. Strain before serving. As this concoction is heated, the alcohol content in the wine will be much reduced. It is very suitable for non drinkers. You can double the recipe to serve for two.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
