You have all heard of the common saying of marination amongst a group gathering. Boys and even sometimes girls try to “intoxicate” their partners in a bid to get them in the mood. However, as we shall show you, it doesn’t have to be so.
If you are looking for the best alcoholic drink to put your lover in the mood, then you are in the right place. In other words, what this blog post will discuss about is the aphrodisiac drinks in Kenya. We will give you information & tips for your perfect Valentine’s Day, or romantic night or first date night.
Our tips will also come in handy if you are in the mood for Netflix and Chill. Some Kenyans prefer buying alcohol online and some of the places they prefer include online wine delivery sites.
Every year, couples and those who want to become one use Valentine’s Day to show their affection for each other and to bring a little fun change into the otherwise busy everyday life. In order to create the right atmosphere at the right time, there are other little helpers besides candlelight that ensure romance and sensuality: aphrodisiac drinks.
What exactly is an aphrodisiac? And how I can tell the best romantic drink in Kenya?
Aphrodisiacs are foods, substances or drinks that are said to have a libido-enhancing effect. The term goes back to the Greek goddess Aphrodite, the goddess of love, beauty and sensual desire, who was also worshiped as the patron saint of reproduction and sexuality. It is not surprising, then, that foods and drinks that are said to have a positive effect on lust were named after the deity.
Why are certain substances stimulating pleasure?
This is mainly due to their ingredients. Certain essential oils or substances stimulate the body’s own cells in a way that is pleasant for us, for example by promoting blood circulation. Better blood circulation in our body ensures dilated vessels and open pores. This relaxes and makes the skin more sensitive to touch and stimulation, which in turn has a positive effect on pleasure.
With very few aphrodisiac drinks, however, a direct effect on the libido is detectable; rather, its side effects put you in the right mood. But which drinks in Kenya ensure more sensual and pleasurable experiences?
Aphrodisiac drinks: Beguiling alcohol
Before you to the dictionary, we got you:
Adjective: charming or enchanting, often in a deceptive way. Example: “a beguiling mixture of English, French, and Italian”
As you probably know from your own experience, alcoholic beverages create a relaxed and relaxed atmosphere. The ethanol contained in the alcohol causes the release of dopamine and the happy endorphins. But be careful: Not every alcohol makes you want to have sex in the same way. The best candidates here are:
1. Pearl & sparkling wines – now it’s getting sparkling
Whether champagne, prosecco , sparkling wine or other frizzantes – the main thing is that it sparkles! The carbonic acid contained in the sparkling and semi-sparkling wines literally shoots the alcohol into the organism and ensures a rapid feeling of intoxication. Touch feels more intense, the blood rushes through the body and leaves a warm, comfortable feeling. The perfect basis for intimate moments.
Tip: Garnish your drinks with fresh fruit or serve it with it. The best for this are figs, grapes, strawberries, bananas or pomegranate, which is not without reason also known as love apple. These fruits are also said to have an aphrodisiac effect. You can buy high-quality semi-sparkling and sparkling wines in Kenya.
2. Red wine
The fact that red wine has a lust-enhancing effect is even scientifically proven. An Italian study found that women and men who drink red wine regularly have higher sexual desire than those who drink less red wine. Red wine promotes blood circulation in particular – and thus promotes the aforementioned mood. Incidentally, the rule of thumb applies here: the more tannins, the greater the effect.
Other options for romantic dates in Kenya
Of course you can also use other drinks. Cocktails in particular are good for a romantic evening. They bring exoticism and variety with them, get along well without alcohol – and can also be enriched with other lust-enhancing fruits and spices. Below are examples:
- Dark chocolate
The universally popular gin, for example, harmonises excellently with many of these aphrodisiacs. We have also put together special gin recipes for you.
How to properly use aphrodisiac drinks
As always when consuming alcohol in Kenya, the same applies to aphrodisiac drinks: less is more. As a rule, one or two glasses are enough to get you in the mood. Anything above that is more likely to make you tired and maybe even give you a headache the next day. It may even ruin your romantic date night.
However, the most important tip we want to give you is: Tastes differ. Not everyone likes the dry feeling that sparkling wine and prosecco leave behind, just as the thought of chocolate does not inspire enthusiasm for everyone. Depending on the individual experience, the consumption of romantic alcohol in Kenya can also cause discomfort rather than relaxation. It is best to find out together with your date what you both like. In this way, even the preparation for a romantic evening can become a real experience.
