Love Potions From QT

QT’s cocktail cupids will be pouring aphrodisiac antics aplenty, brewing up Love Potions, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic across QT’s signature bars; Rooftop at QT Auckland, Reds Bar at QT Queenstown and Hippopotamus at QT Wellington.

Sure to hit the spot, Love Potions are concocted using No Ugly Libido tonic which is made with scientifically formulated ingredients such as ashwagandha and maca root, nootropics ginseng and ginkgo biloba.

One exciting concoction from the Love Potion collection, ‘Strong Desire,’ was inspired by the classic cocktail the Clover Club. Think strawberry gin with a hint of hibiscus balanced with citrus and with a vegan foam (though can be replaced with egg white). The addition of No Ugly Libido adds bright flavours of cherry and an earthy undertone from the Ashwagandha.
