But don't go searching the internet for these love potions as we've got the list of the best right here. So, whether it's a newfound partner or a long-time lover, these pre-sex cocktails will make you want to head from the nightclub to the bedroom ASAP.

Bonus: This list of pre-sex cocktails will also save you the worry of aimlessly scrolling through the menu the next time you're out on a date.

Can pre-sex cocktails facilitate better sex?

The answer is both yes and no. Let us explain! For some people, a chemical reaction does take place within the body while for others it's mostly a placebo effect. 

Aphrodisiacs like ginger, honey, vanilla, hot peppers, and saffron do have a particular science behind them. These ingredients help get your blood pumping. When blood flow increases, feel-good chemicals like serotonin are released in the brain, resulting in an increase of hormone levels. This entire process eventually leads to heightened arousal and a boost in stamina, putting you in the mood.

6 pre-sex cocktails to put you in the mood

1. Casino Royale

Aphrodisiac: Egg Yolk

Egg yolk, gin, lemon juice, and maraschino liqueur --- this James Bond-inspired drink has been spicing things up since the 60s. This ingredient is widely popular for its proteins, but did you know that it does more than just help you reach your weight goals.

For years, egg yolks have been used as a stimulant due to their ability to increase testosterone and energy. So, the next time you're out on a date, maybe ditch the whiskey and give the Casino Royale a try instead —- you might just end up feeling like James Bond himself.

2. Gin Cocktail With Honey And Lemon Cordial

Aphrodisiac: Honey

As you are aware, honey is an aphrodisiac and when mixed with gin and lemon it creates an irresistible concoction. Honey is the main aphrodisiac ingredient in this pre-sex cocktail as it is rich in vitamin B. This nutrient is said to increase testosterone production which will get you in the mood for some sexy time.

3. Bourbon Berry Cocktail

Aphrodisiac: Strawberries

Strawberries are known for their aphrodisiac properties, so it's no surprise that they made it on our list of pre-sex cocktails. The strawberries contain zinc and folic acid which play a part in boosting sex drive. Coupled with bourbon, you can easily switch those tired feelings with talk dirty to me vibes.

4. Gingered Peach Margarita

Aphrodisiac: Ginger

Chilies aren't the only thing that increases the heat in the body and heightens heart rate, ginger does the same as well. But that's not all! The aromas of ginger are also said to stimulate arousal. And since this drink is easy to make, you can whip this up during your date night at home. You're bound to go from Netflix to Chill in no time.

5. Red wine

Ever found yourself in the mood after a glass or 2 of red? Well, unlike its counterpart white wine, certain studies in Italy proved that red actually does increase sexual desires in women. It was found that red wine contains antioxidants that improve vascular health. This helps promote blood flow to the rest of the body and aids in increasing libido.

6. Brandy Alexander

Aphrodisiac: Nutmeg

Nutmeg has been used to treat low libido for centuries. And now it has found its way into this tasty cocktail. This spice is known to stimulate the central nervous system and imitate serotonin in the body. Mixed with some cognac and cream, this spicy drink can get temperatures soaring.

Here's the deal! While pre-sex cocktails and other aphrodisiacs do help put you in the mood, they don't automatically turn up your sex drive. In simple words, this helps make an existing flame grow brighter, but it can't create a flame where there is none.
