Love Potion #9 Cocktail Recipe

Being a delicious cocktail, it is delicate, low-proof, and contains only 1 1/2 ounces of liquor, making it an excellent choice for romantic occasions. In addition, there are several traditional ways that you can add your own flair to it. The cocktail is no guarantee that it’s a love potion, and it’s probably not Madame Ruth’s magic shot, as made popular in an oldies song by the same name. Despite its appearance, it is guaranteed that this love potion makes no reference to Indian ink or turpentine. Instead, it is actually an excellent fresh cocktail, especially when topped off with strawberry vodka and an edible chocolate rim.

There are also many other chocolate liqueurs available, but the ones with a darker color will make the blend look muddy. Although the color might seem sparse, it’s an advantage since the Godiva Liqueur infused one of the best versions makes up for it with its intense chocolate flavor. In addition to white chocolate truffles, Godiva also offers white chocolate liqueur.


  • The strawberry or vanilla vodka is likely to be superior when used in this cocktail, even though clear vodka is good in this cocktail. In case the mixture is too thick, simply add a little more vodka or chocolate liqueur (milk may also be used).
  • You can blend it again when it is too thin. Add either ice or ice cream when it is too thin.
  • It’s no surprise that strawberries are aphrodisiacs, so they’re an ideal choice for this drink. Feel free to add other kinds of berries, too, or go with the never-fail mix of strawberries and bananas.
