Fruity Valentine’s Cocktails from Skyy

Before greeting cards, roses and lavish gifts, people relied on simpler ways to entice their loved ones. Some believed that certain types of foods could stir romance. For instance, natural foods like vanilla and almonds release an aromatic scent that has been thought to provoke passion. If you’re searching for something that appeals to both sight and taste, nothing can compete with the eye-catching and sumptuous appeal of delectable real fruit.

Raspberries and cherries are considered common aphrodisiacs due to their shape and intense color. Passion fruit may look simple on the outside, but one taste of its sweet inner core will tickle your sweetheart’s palate, making you the object of their affection. The folks at Skyy created their infusions in this spirit, so enjoy one of these sweet, sexy cocktails.
