Aries: Passion Fruit Margarita

Aries, you're motivated and confident, with an unwavering tendency to build relationships wherever you go. Most of all, you’re a passionate person—so what better drink for you than a passion fruit margarita? Mix all of the below ingredients, and pour over ice. Add a salted rim for a classic margarita twist, or add some fancy fruit garnishes for a classy look.

  • 2 oz tequila

  • 1 oz passion fruit purée

  • .5 oz triple sec

  • .5 oz raw cane sugar

  • 2 dashes of Regan’s Orange Bitters

Taurus: Paloma

Taurus, you’re practical, ambitious and determined. A paloma is the perfect happy hour drink for you! Just like with a classic margarita, you can add a salted rim to your glass. Then mix together the juices, tequila and sugar. Pour it over some ice, and add some garnish for decoration. 

  • Wedge of fresh lime

  • Flake salt 

  • 2 oz of fresh grapefruit juice

  • 1 tbsb of fresh lime juice

  • 1 tsp of sugar

  • 2 oz of tequila

  • Soda water (add according to your preference)

Gemini: Sorbellini

Geminis have a go-with-the-flow personality that easily adjust to many situations. You’re also always ready to mingle with your enthusiastic and social persona. Why not try a sorbellini? Grab a champagne flute and add some sorbet, then pour in sparkling wine –– it’s that easy!

  • Fruit sorbet 

  • Sparkling wine (add according to your preference)

Cancer: Perfect Spritz

Being loyal comes naturally and you’re always the most protective and caring in your friend group. You pay close attention to detail, which adds to your intuitive nature. A drink full of layered flavors with lavender and floral hints was made for you.

Pour both types of vermouth, gin and lavender into a pitcher. Stir it all together, and let this yummy drink sit overnight. Pour some into a glass the next day, and add some soda or tonic water according to preference. This recipe makes more than one drink, so you'll have enough for more than one virtual happy hour.

  • 7 oz red vermouth

  • 7 oz white vermouth

  • 7 oz gin

  • 1 tsp of dried lavender

  • Soda or tonic water (add according to your preference)

  • Lemon wedge

  • Lavender sprigs

Leo: Sex on the Beach

You’re excited about life and love to give. You're also confident, brave and ready to conquer what you set your mind to! Because of that, a sex on the beach cocktail fits your personality. Grab a jug and stir the vodka, peach schnapps and juice together. Fill a glass with ice and pour the mixture in. Don’t forget to garnish with cherries and oranges.

  • 1.5 oz vodka

  • 1 oz peach schnapps

  • 2 oranges (juiced)

  • 1.5 oz cranberry juice

  • Cherries to garnish

Virgo: Raspberry Gin

Virgo, you are kind and patient. Beyond your sweet attributes, you put in work, and because of that, people see you as reliable and dependable. This recipe doesn’t make one serving, but actually makes a full jar. Take the raspberries and sugar, and pour it into the gin. Close the jar and swirl it all together. But now comes patience, as you’ll need to store the concoction in a cool, dark place for two weeks, turning over the jar once a day. Once the wait is over, you’ll be able to drink this concoction for up to a year.

  • 12 oz raspberries

  • 5 oz sugar

  • 24 oz bottle of gin

Libra: Manhattan

Fairness, idealism, and cleverness are some of your most prominent traits—that’s why a Manhattan is your ideal go-to virtual happy hour drink! Mix the ingredients together with ice until it’s nice and cool. Then, strain the drink into a glass and garnish with some sweet cherries.

  • 2 oz bourbon

  • 1 oz sweet vermouth

  • 2 dashes of Angostura bitters

  • 1 dash of orange bitters

  • Cherries

Scorpio: Endless Summer

As a Scorpio, you are determined and ambitious. Because your amazing characteristics are endless, you deserve a drink like the Endless Summer. Mix all of the below ingredients in a shaker and then pour over ice.

  • 1.5 oz tequila

  • .5 oz Cointreau

  • .5 oz creme de cassis

  • 1.5 orange juice

  • .5 oz lime juice

Sagittarius: The Minty Fresh

Honesty and optimism define your personality, but you’re also an adventurer who is independent when it comes to your own ways of thinking. An individual like you deserves a unique drink like this. Grab a glass and combine some fresh mint, sugar and lime juice. Add some ice and cachaca to your mixture, and strain it into a champagne flute. Add some cava and enjoy!

  • 2 oz cachaca

  • 2-3 mint leaves

  • 1 oz lime juice

  • 2 tsp sugar

  • Cava (add according to your preference)

Capricorn: Tinto de Verano

You may be perceived as stubborn, but you’re really just ambitious and hardworking. Whatever you set your mind to, you'll achieve. A workaholic like you deserves a vacation with some Tinto de Verano. This Spanish drink is similar to Sangria, but with a lemon soda. Add some citrusy garnishes, and sip away!

  • Sprite or 7-Up

  • Red wine

  • Lemon and orange wedges 

Aquarius: Cosmopolitan

Aquarius, you’re intelligent, original and independent. You know what you want, and nothing is going to change that. Your eccentric personality makes the Cosmopolitan Cocktail perfect for you. Like with many drinks, you’ll shake the ingredients together and strain it into a cocktail glass (cool the glass beforehand for an even tastier experience). Then, add a garnish and voila!

  • 1.5 oz lemon vodka

  • .5 oz triple sec

  • .5 oz lime juice

  • Orange zest

  • Lime wedge

Pisces: Hot White Russian

Creativity follows wherever you go, and everyone can see your artistry. But Pisces, you’re also empathetic and generous. Try a recipe that makes you feel the warm feeling you give to others. Grab a saucepan and heat all of the ingredients together. Pour the mixture into a few mugs and add some whipped cream!

  • 4 oz coffee

  • 2 oz Kahlua

  • 2 oz milk

  • 1 oz vodka

  • Whipped cream (if desired)
