What happens when you take a cuppa and a slice of cake and pimp that shiz up?
‘We never do anything fun anymore…’ The words any hard-working, stressed yet romantically inclined man dreads hearing from the neighbouring pillow.
Dinner has become routine. The ballet sends you (literally) to sleep. Nightclubs remind you that you might as well have your legs and musical collection amputated. How to keep your better half energised and look like a classy, proactive and cultured so and so? We think we’ve found the answer.
For the sexiest afternoon tea you’ll ever experience, booking into the glamorous May Fair Hotel on Valentine’s Day is a must. Hearts will be aflutter and pulses will race as you sample their menu of natural aphrodisiacs. In terms of cocktails, a Salted Aniseed Sour is sure to get you hot and bothered, while the Pomegranate and Vanilla Shot will have you channelling Aphrodite. Also available are the likes of the Siberian Ginseng, Lemongrass and Ginger Cooler and the Cardamom, Cinnamon and Honey Mule. Now if you’re not salivating as you read this, there’s definitely something missing in your system.
After sipping on all that love juice (ahem), you’re invited to gorge on incredible White Truffle Glazed Pork; Sumac Crusted Langoustine and Avocado Hummus with Oysters Rockefeller. Who knew hummus was a turn on? Well, there’s something for everyone, as a one-eyed dominatrix once pointed out to me.
Aphro-Tea-Siac is available between 8th and 17th February in both Quince and the May Fair Bar. If you fancy going all out, up your love game with the Valentine’s overnight package in one of the hotel’s stunning signature suites. Champagne breakfast included.
