Remember the movie “Love Potion #9” with Sandra Bullock and Tate Donovan? I love that movie and still cheer on for the couple, even though I’ve watched it like a million times. Who would think that a simple love potion would have the guys see you in a completely different light and fall in love with you. Pretty much any girls dream, right? Now I know that there may not be any actual love potions, but I’ve got a few love potion mixed drinks that won’t look weird or taste unpleasantly like in the movie. Although these cocktails may not get someone to fall in love with you (maybe it will), you’ll still have fun trying them out. Also, if you are not one for mixed drinks, there is love potion just for you.
