Eating and drinking goes hand in hand with dating and of course sex. So what are the best foods and drinks to get the mood set right and make sure your evening is a successful one? Oysters Of course this article couldn't be written without mentioning oysters, possibly the most commonly referred to aphrodisiac. While scientists claim there is no actual solid evidence to back up the claims it doesn't mean they won't help put a great end to your night. Just the fact that your date is interested in eating them probably means you have a good chance of scoring before the night is over. Even if not they are a great source of protein and vitamins, so you cannot really go wrong. The myths about oysters stem from the legend that the Greek goddess of love arose from the sea on an oyster which gave them their status as an aphrodisiac centuries ago. Since then the fabled Casanova was said to eat 50 raw oysters a day to keep up his libido. If it worked for him, it is at least worth a shot. Ceviche This great Peruvian dish is also said to give a great boost to the libido to get things moving in the right direction and maximize performance. Plus it is much safer than Viagra. Ceviche is made using fish and seafood like baby squid and shrimp which is cooked in lime juice. Add salt, garlic, red onion and chilies to taste. If you have never tried it, you must. It looks a lot more appetising than raw oysters and libido boost or not will energize you without making you feel to full. Chocolate Martinis Alcohol is always an aphrodisiac in any form. Well unless it turns your date into a total ogre. No woman can resist chocolate so this is the perfect finish to a meal or ideal night cap to put her in the mood and make sure your night ends up right. There are a number of variations but the following recipe should do the trick just fine: 1 1/2 shots Godiva chocolate liqueur 1/2 shot vodka 1 1/2 shots creme de cacao 2 1/2 shots half and half Make sure you have all of the ingredients at home to make it as she is sure to want more.
