Ladies, this pretty little cocktail’s just for you! Pick out your favorite négligée and drop the needle on your favorite Peggy Lee record. It’s going to be a steamy little night.

I have a little secret for you. Would you like to have a really, really nice little Valentine’s Day with your sweetheart? You have GOT to try this!

I found this very exciting little tea on Amazon, It’s called “Moon time Tea” which is specially formulated to stimulate a lady’s “drive,” so to speak.

It contains “honey bush” (um, yum?) rose petals, vanilla, a hint of cinnamon and Damiana. Damiana is known as a potent aphrodisiac, and I can personally attest to its effectiveness.

Goodness. Clutch the pearls, it’s delightfully dangerous!

Honestly, apart from putting a little sparkle in your muffin (yes, that is what I said), it has some other lovely effects.  According to happyherbcompany.com:

“Damiana affects the psyche, producing a mild emotional uplift that can last for up to one and a half hours. Some Damiana before bed relaxes one for love-making and promotes pleasant dreams (quite possibly erotic within the first seven days)! Three-dimensional effects and colour appreciation may also be heightened.”

So if the tea weren’t good enough, I thought maybe I’d give it the cocktail treatment. I steeped a bag of tea in sake over night, added a little raspberry and pomegranate juice, and gave it a spritz of rose water.

I’ve become completely hooked. Help yourself to my little Damiana Valentine cocktail.

      As a matter of fact, I’m drinking it right now as an iced tea sweetened with pomegranate juice! It’s so refreshing!
