As a romantic Taurus, you’ll love finding the perfect strong yet sweet summer cocktails. We suggest you try a pineapple whiskey sour. A twist on a classic, this drink will definitely get you in the tropical mood. But if you don’t like whiskey, don’t freak out; pineapple goes with basically anything, especially in the summer heat. This drink is perfect for you because you sometimes have a hard time relaxing. You’re almost always super responsible, but don’t be afraid to loosen up and have fun with friends this summer.

This grown-up spin on a childhood classic is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, and it can lighten up any day. You’re witty and outspoken, and of all the summer cocktails out there, this one is sure to get some fun conversations going.
As an innovative and creative Cancer, you love thinking outside the box. So why have a classic mimosa when you can add a tropical twist? Tropical mimosas are all the rage lately, and whether it’s pineapple or passion fruit, basically any fruit juice goes well with champagne. So the next time you’re heading to brunch with your besties, surprise them by ordering this new take on a classic brunch drink.
As a Leo, you’ve always been one to make an entrance. You’d never settle for less than perfect because you know you deserve the best in life. We think that a strawberry margarita is the perfect summer cocktail for you. By adding a fruity twist to an already fun drink, you’ll easily get the party started. You’re a natural born leader, and there’s no better time than summer to show your true colors.
As a hardworking Virgo, there’s no challenge too big to take on. This sour cherry gin smash will definitely put your bartending skills to work, but we think you can definitely master it. What’s better than a delicious cocktail that’s fruity but not too sweet? When it comes to summer cocktails, don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone. Try new flavors and be open to talking to the person next to you at the bar. You never know who you’ll end up meeting this summer.
You, Libra, are a total social butterfly. You’ll likely find yourself hanging with big groups of people this summer and expanding your social circles. We think that when it comes to summer cocktails, the classic mint julep is right up your alley. It’s always been a crowd pleaser, not to mention it complements every Instagram aesthetic. You value harmony in your life and in your relationships, and we know that this drink will lead to some long-lasting friendships.
As a passionate and charming Scorpio, the classic aperol spritz is perfect for you. When it comes to summer cocktails, you’re just as much about appearance as you are flavor, and this drink offers both. Scorpios are known for being loyal friends, so make sure to take the time this summer to reach out to people you’ve been meaning to see. Whether you’re going to happy hour on a rooftop or having a night in with your besties, this cocktail is a great go-to summer drink.
As a Sagittarius, your summer is likely all about being outdoors. You love to travel and meet different types of people, and of course enjoying food and drinks along the way. This refreshing strawberry basil bourbon lemonade is the perfect summer drink for you. Like many summer cocktails, this one is fruity, light, and sure to take the edge off after a long work week. You’re generous and outgoing when it comes to making friends, but you also love to go with the flow.
As a Capricorn, you’re all about tradition. You love keeping things simple while making the presentation classy. The gin rickey has been around forever, but we suggest adding strawberry or raspberry to make it even more summery. You have great self-discipline, and everyone knows you’re a great party host. So the next time you have your closest group of friends over, surprise them by making this new version of an old classic.
As an independent Aquarius, you have two sides to you. You definitely need your alone time to recharge, but you also love going out on the town with friends. You can never go wrong with a classic mojito, which we think will definitely make your list of top summer cocktails. This drink is refreshing but not overly sweet, and it goes well in any situation you may find yourself in. The only thing that can make this drink better is serving it in a cute mason jar.
As a Pisces, you’re never one to hold yourself back. You need a drink that’s just as fun as you are, so we think that a classic piña colada should be your go-to drink. If you’re not a huge fan of sugary drinks, just ask the bartender to tone it down a bit. You’re artistic and definitely not afraid to dream big, so feel free to get creative with the flavors. Get ready to take a sip and be immediately transported to the island of your dreams.
So as you can see, there’s no shortage of fun summer cocktails to try. Never be afraid to get creative and try new flavors. So step outside your comfort zone this summer, because you just might discover your new favorite drink.
