An Innovative Wine Tasting to Enhance the Romance

Throughout history the 'almond' has been a long-standing symbol of fertility and the aroma is said to induce passion in females. The Aztec ruler, Montezuma, would reportedly drink 50 goblets of chocolate each day to enhance his libido, and in ancient Persia new couples would drink a beverage made of honey every day for a month after they married to ensure a successful marriage.

Did you know...

Honey - Mead, a fermented drink made primarily of honey, dates back to medieval times and was used not only to increase libido, but to bless new marriages. The ancient Egyptians used honey to cure sterility and impotence, while in ancient Persia, new couples would drink mead together every day for a month after they married, in order to ensure a successful marriage. This period was known as the Honey Moon.

Chocolate - The Ancient Mayan civilization worshipped the Cacao tree and called it "food of the gods". Folklore indicated that the Aztec ruler Montezuma would reportedly drink 50 goblets of chocolate each day to enhance his libido. In actuality, it is the chemical composition of chocolate that gives its love potion qualities; phenylethylamine and serotonin are potent "feel good" chemicals naturally produced in our bodies that produce a sense of euphoria or happiness when consumed through chocolate.
