For the Ladies Fun Fact: Did you know champagne enters the bloodstream pretty quickly and has a solid reputation of giving you the case of those flirty giggles? Dry champagne has also been known to be able to mimic the scent of female pheromones that just might be detected by your significant other, creating a true cocktail celebration. Champagne also goes great with other aphrodisiacs like chocolate and strawberries, but in this cocktail, we will pair it with lemongrass- an herb with a reputation for enhancing S.E.
