Aries

Spicy Mango Margarita 

I wouldn’t recommend a spicy drink for just anyone. Aries, as the first sign of the zodiac, you hold a distinct pioneering spirit and you share your boundless energy with everyone around, just like this drink.

Taurus

Peach Tea Crown Royal

You deserve to indulge in a home-style drink that leaves you feeling warm and cozy. Kick your feet up to this drink, Taurus. This for the days you sit on the porch or cuddle up in a lavish suite. Take the day off with this and surround yourself with your most prized possessions. It’s a good summer.

Gemini

Water.

Just Kidding. Crisp and refreshing at first, with a delightful kick after a couple of drinks. You get a blackberry gin & tonic because it’s two-toned of course! But also, a drink as artful and exquisite as this is sure to be a conversation starter. What will you tell the others?

Cancer

Fishbowl Cocktail

You deserve a drink you can get lost in, Cancer. A fishbowl is an aquatic masterpiece in a bowl. Add your favorite fruits and candies to this drink and use your creative instincts to make it beautiful and captivating.

Leo

Pornstar Martini

Someone as bright as you deserves a drink just as bold. If Leo were a fruit, they’d be a passion fruit and that’s why this drink is yours. Whether you order this at the bar or make it at home, this is a cocktail fit for the main character you are.

Virgo

Moscow Mule w/ Cucumber

A Moscow mule done well is a Moscow mule done right. Though it seems simple, it’s the quality of ingredients you put in this cocktail that makes or breaks it. Tinker with the variations in this drink. Knowing you, Virgo, you can probably make your own signature.

Libra

Expense of Honesty

There is no better drink for you than this. The Expense of honesty has the perfect balance of deep warm liquor and honey that melts away conflict and beckons peace.

Scorpio

New York Sour

A daring and penetrating drink for a daring and penetrating soul. A New York Sour done right looks like power in a glass. This is a cocktail fit for a boss like yourself. Scan the room through soft squinted eyes as you sip this for extra theatrical effect.

Sagittarius

Straight Whiskey

Let’s just get to the point here, Sag. No mixer, no flavor, no ice– just good ol’ Tennessee whiskey neat. Grab your best glass and tell your best stories.

Capricorn

French 75 w/ vodka

This drink exudes class and refinery. No one orders prosecco and vodka unless they’ve got their lives together, or at least look like it! You’ll be surprised how smooth such a strong drink goes down. This is Capricorn all the way.

Aquarius

Pop Rocks Martini

You are always a wonderful surprise, just like this drink. There is no rulebook for the perfect cocktail, and while the others sip their drinks and taste, you get a full sensory experience. Indulge in those things that electrify you, Aquarius.

Pisces

Blue Jellyfish Shot

This drink is as transcendent as you. Add a little cream and you have the romance only one can achieve when they take the time to create a tiny jellyfish in a shot glass. Add a little more cream, and this cocktail looks as wispy as if you were staring up at the sky on a beautiful day. Let this cocktail sweep you away; just remember to come back down!

These summer cocktails are perfect if you need a refresher or a warm reminder that even if your summer didn’t go exactly as planned, it’ll all work out. And feel free to try a drink from another sign, remember, you have a whole birth chart to explore!

Happy summer and happy sipping!
