first_imgStay on target For most people, alcohol is not an aphrodisiac—despite what last week’s drunken night out suggested.Yes, booze can help lower your inhibitions. But it also decreases the chances of male sexual arousal, lessens pleasurability, and increases difficulty in attaining orgasm (according to scientists.)Which is why a collaboration between The Watercress Company and Cerne Abbas Brewery is so intoxicating.AdChoices广告The UK-based companies teamed up to create a new beer that has the potential to help men … rise to the occasion.A 4.5% ABV light and floral Pilsner-style craft ale, Watercress Warrior features watercress seed as its key ingredient, giving the drink a hot-pepper flavor.No longer just for salads, the aquatic plant is one of the oldest known leaf vegetables consumed by humans, and is botanically related to mustard, radish, and wasabi—all known for their tangy taste.The beer also contains mineral-rich spring water from The Watercress Company’s own farm, as well as Flyer hops selected from the British Hop Institute’s experimental variety program.The result, according to the Cerne Abbas website, is a “sharp slap across the chops,” followed by a “floral cuddle.”“But there’s a rumored additional benefit to the inclusion of watercress,” TWC teased in a blog post. “That of boosting your sex drive … which simply stiffened our resolve to be involved.”(See what they did there?)Cerne Abbas Brewery, located in southern England, got its name from the nearby Cerne Abbas Giant—a 180-foot-tall nude male figure (with a rather prominent erection) carved into the Dorset hills.The brewery slaps an image of the colossus, believed to be an Iron Age fertility symbol, onto the label of every beer it produces.“A celebration of ancient health associations connect our iconic Giant to the Cerne Abbas Monastery, where monks traditionally grew watercress for its medicinal properties. We feel pretty sure they would approve of this heavenly drop,” the brewery said of its most recent product. “Warrior delivers a unique, delicately peppery flavor, to leave you feeling fighting fit (but not literally, please; we’re pacifists).”Last year, a local artist added a handful of watercress (made from massive sheets of plastic) to the sculpture to celebrate the Cerne Abbas’ latest launch. The Giant was even rewarded with a glug of Watercress Warrior “to pep him up and promote good luck and fortune,” TWC said.Mixed drinks could soon be a thing of the past, but at least someone created a real cannabis beer.
