Bitten By The Love Bug Cocktail Recipe

Love is in the air, can you smell it? It smells like lavender, strawberries, and fruit punch. Also, I can’t smell too good, so this may be a figment of my imagination.

What was I doing that got me thinking about love bugs? Insects are not anything that I care for, especially the creepy ones, which is pretty much all of them.

On the contrary, with all this love flowing around, there has to be a love bug in the area, and what better way to honor this specimen than to make a cocktail recipe?

A Valentine’s Day Special

You may be reading this, asking yourself this question. What does love bug mean? Do they bite? The meaning is a person who is in love.

Realistically speaking, love bugs are actual creatures that will give you everything but love. They may even give you the hashtag special, if you get my drift.

This May Actually Be A Halloween Special

Also, known as the honeymoon fly, kissing bug, or double-headed bug, this bug can be incredibly dangerous.

They are normally referred to as kissing bugs, so for now, let’s call them that. This name comes from the fact that most of their bites on humans are around the lips.

Interactions between these bugs and people can result in disease transmission, one being Chagas disease, which comes from a parasite that is located in the kissing bug gut.

Chagas disease has two stages, the acute phase, and the chronic phase. During the acute phase, people experience vomiting, loss of appetite, tiredness, body aches, fever, rash, headache, and/or diarrhea

In the chronic phase, people may experience heart problems.

Enough About Creepy Bugs

I think it is time for us to start making our cocktails.
