CHARLESTOWN, Nevis – To solidify Nevis’ positon as the definitive “Island of Love,” the Nevis Tourism Authority (NTA) has introduced a signature cocktail with aphrodisiac properties to inspire love and romance on Valentine’s Day on February 14.
Inspired by Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love, beauty, and fertility; the “Nevisian Kiss,” was conceived by the award-winning Nevisian mixologist, Kremour Maloney.
“Aphrodite was also Cupid’s mother, the symbol of Valentine’s love and passion,” explains Maloney. “She was acclaimed to have given us the gift of pleasure and the power of seduction, all elements that stir those lustful feelings that are captured in her namesake, Aphrodisiac and we deliver in the Nevisian Kiss.”
Aromatic and spiced, the Nevisian Kiss contains three magical elixirs with aphrodisiac qualities that have been used through the ages: Cinnamon for blood flow and sexual libido; ginger to increase body heat and a heightened heart rate; and Nutmeg, reputed to be “Viagra for Women,” also raises body heat, sweetens breath, and acts as an all-round stimulant. The foundation of the Nevisian Kiss is Nevisian rum, Captain Nils Viking Rum, and combined, these ingredients are brewed to make a potent mix.
The recipe for the Nevisian Kiss is a blend of 1.5 oz. Captain Nils Viking Rum, 1.0 oz. fresh lime juice, 1.0 oz. cinnamon infused simple syrup, 0.75 oz. apple juice, two slices of ginger root and
finished with a garnish of fresh grated nutmeg.
To ensure the Nevisian Kiss blended to perfection, Maloney will host a live-stream demonstration on Instagram, @NevisNaturally, on Sunday, February 14th at 1 p.m. AST, (12:00 p.m. EST).
