A horoscope with a twist!
Almost everyone has their signature, go-to cocktail or favorite drink.
Even James Bond makes sure that his martini is always shaken, not stirred.
Every cocktail has its own personality, or rather, its own stereotypes. Long Island iced teas are for the party people, gin & tonics are for the scholarly folk, pina coladas are for the friend who really needs a vacation…the list goes on and on.
So where does astrology come into play? Good question. Each astrological sign has distinct personality traits, so naturally, each sign should be accompanied by a signature drink. In this case, these drinks are fabulously crafted cocktails.
We are here to pair each zodiac sign with a specific specialty cocktail, one that shares some similar traits with each given sign. Because there’s really nothing better than a cocktail horoscope, especially once the weekend finally rolls around.
So here are some classic yet timeless cocktail ideas (with a little astrology thrown in there too).
You’re a classic mimosa. This is one of our favorite cocktail ideas since it reflects the personality of a woman who knows what she wants and goes after it. You always go with your gut, which can occasionally lead to decisions you might end up regretting. Did someone say bottomless mimosas? You make decisions quickly because you want to ensure you have the first say in the matter. You’re a leader amongst your friends, your co-workers, and even a group of random acquaintances. Basically, you wear the pants.
You’re a perfectly positioned Moscow Mule. You’re a true lover of life. You love to make memories by meeting new people, especially in unfamiliar environments. These memories include an Instagram feed full of unforgettable times with friends (with a carefully curated color scheme, of course).
You care how people think about you, but this isn’t a bad thing. It holds you accountable and makes you relatively more self-aware. So naturally, a yummy Moscow Mule in its classic copper mug is your go-to drink.
Of all the popular cocktail ideas, the Scorpio bowl is definitely the crowd favorite in terms of quantity. You’re a pretty easygoing person. You go with the flow, especially when it comes to making huge group dinners less stressful. You might not know exactly what you’re getting into when ordering a scorpion bowl, but whatever it is, you’re gonna have the time of your life.
You are a Cosmopolitan. Remember “Sex and the City”? You’re basically that show in drink form. And yes, you should feel very honored.
Cancers are known for their emotional sides, which means you’re one of those caring, giving types. You’re always attentive to those around you, especially your family and closest friends. But more importantly, you definitely have a sentimental side when it comes to the past. You’re nostalgic for the simpler times of youth, and this drink will provide you with the perfect little reminder of the good times gone by.
You are a margarita. But not just a margarita, a very strong margarita. This, of course, is a good thing. Although a margarita is not the most original of cocktail ideas, it certainly knows how to make a statement.
Leos are known to be outgoing and fun-loving. You’re the life of the party, and you make sure everyone is having as good of a time as you are. You’re not afraid to let people see the real you, so tequila is a definite friend of yours (unless you have too much, and tequila will quickly deceive you and become your worst nemesis).
You’re a vodka soda. As a Virgo, you’ve always been a pretty pragmatic person. You’re not a huge fan of change, but that doesn’t mean you’re not down to have fun. You prefer to stick with your closest friends rather than go out with a bigger group. The vodka soda is sometimes bashed as being a boring drink, but it’s not a sin to look out for your health. Plus, you still get a buzz, so you’re not a total buzzkill (no pun intended).
Off to brunch we go! You are a garnished Bloody Mary. As a Libra, you’re a natural born leader. You love to be sociable and outgoing when meeting new people. You reserve weekends for catching up with your closest friends and dishing about the night before. Your friends may describe you as eclectic, just as they might describe this reigning queen of breakfast cocktail ideas.
You are sangria, strong-willed and bold. You’re a very passionate person with many different layers of emotion, much like the multitudes of flavors in sangria. You love meeting new people and hearing their stories. You have a few key passions in life, and you give your all to what you care about most.
However, this doesn’t mean you’re an open book. You’ll likely not reveal your whole self all at once, which leaves room for an intriguing, mysterious side.
You are a mint julep. You have a bit of a dramatic side, so you make every day Derby day. You love to laugh, especially with your closest group of friends at a chic new rooftop bar. Your endless optimism brightens everyone’s day, so don’t stop smiling! People want to get to know you, and you love talking to new people. This cocktail order doubles as a good conversation starter, but you already knew that.
You’re a classic mojito. You like to stick to what you know, rather than constantly putting yourself out there. You know what you want, and you know how to get it. So why waste your time experimenting with unpredictable cocktail ideas? You’re pragmatic and punctual, and you aren’t afraid to go after what you want most in life.
You’re a gin gimlet. Strong and with a punch. People sometimes think you’re being distant, but what they aren’t seeing is your need for independence. You indulge in moments of solitary peace and quiet, even if it’s just a cozy night in. You’re an easygoing person, and you rarely get on people’s nerves because of your chill, laid-back attitude.
You are a hot toddy. The hot toddy is an aromatic drink, and the smell brings back memories of fun times spent with loved ones. This is a timeless drink, which reflects your age-defying wisdom. Friends often turn to you for advice; you’ll always know the right thing to say, especially when they’re feeling down. You’re extremely caring and kind, which are not character qualities that grow on trees these days. Don’t take yourself (or the deliciousness of hot toddies) for granted…you are an invaluable friend.
So as you can see, cocktails have almost as much character as we do. Happy mixing!
