So….. I was putting together my pre-requisite Valentine’s Day Gift Guide…. just like every other blogger has done over the past couple of weeks. I was bored to tears…. and thought there had to be something more exciting to represent Valentine’s Day than a bouquet of flowers or a candle. Then it hit me…. The Love Potion! Who wouldn’t want to make…. and drink…. a Love Potion? Exciting right?? Let’s get started!!
Pour 1 cup of fresh water into a saucepan. Add to the water…. 2 teaspoons of dried jasmine flowers, 1 tablespoon of dried rose petals, a vanilla pod split lengthwise or a ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 1-2 cinnamon sticks. Stir and let simmer for 4 to 5 minutes.
Passion…. Who doesn’t want it? Our little “Love Potion” will help bring passion, fire and balance into our lives. Drink hot…. or let cool and either shake with ice chips and serve in a martini glass. Or pour over a glass of ice and garnish with either a rose petal or strawberry. Let the LOVE begin!!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
