There’s nothing quite like sitting down to sip on an adult beverage. Whether you’re relaxing with a delicious cocktail or savoring a fine red wine, there’s no denying alcohol is a big part of our culture.

Sometimes, however, the options can be a little overwhelming. Have you ever stared at a drink menu, completely baffled as to what to order? Or gone to a friend’s house and they’ve offered you a drink, and you don’t have a go-to?

That’s where this post comes in. You can use your astrological sign to narrow down your options and find your new favorite drink. Let’s dig in.

Aries: a Spicy Bloody Mary 

Aries is a fire sign, so anything spicy will satisfy them. The movers and shakers of the Zodiac world, Aries are always on the go. That’s why this sign has a vodka drink; vodka cocktails disappear from bars faster than any other liquor. It’s well-suited to the Aries nature of moving fast.

Aquarius: an Absinthe Cocktail

As an air sign, Aquarius tends to be a little flighty. However, they’re also very innovative and intellectually-oriented, making absinthe the perfect drink for them. It’s associated with science, plus it’s very unique. Find them sipping this fancy cocktail as they dazzle their social circle with their knowledge.

Cancer: Mulled Wine

Sensitive, nurturing Cancers are like the matriarchs of the Zodiac signs. They love to help people feel safe and welcome. This water sign may avoid strong flavors and potent spirits, so no shots of tequila for them! Instead, opt for a mulled wine full of apples and cinnamon flavors you can savor with friends around a fire. Recipe

Capricorn: a Well-Aged Cognac

Earth signs are firm and hardworking, yet still down to have fun. A strong drink they can savor is perfect for this well-grounded sign. A daring and flavorful Mezcal they can sip will work well, too. Capricorns will nurse their cognacs and enjoy every drop (and likely won’t refuse a refill!).

Gemini: Gin and Tonic

Long thought to be the most changeable and curious of the Zodiac, this air sign likes to shake things up. While they may try many different kinds of drinks at a party, once their options are exhausted, they’re likely to end with a classic, light drink. Hence, the lime-based and simple gin and tonic.


Leo: Whiskey

Dramatic, vibrant Leos will want a drink to match their bold personalities. This fire sign is creative and loud, so a flavorful whiskey suits them just fine. Something to add a bit of tingle or burn to their evening suits their fiery nature. They’ll likely order the most expensive one at the bar to boot!

Libra: a Mimosa

This classy, adventurous-yet-balanced air sign pairs perfectly with a traditional mimosa. Libras aren’t usually the ones to experiment with the newest, craziest alcoholic drink. Rather, they prefer the finer things, and let’s face it, what looks trendier in photos than brunch with bottomless mimosas? Plus the 50/50 mix of orange juice and champagne mirrors Libra's preference for balance. They may enjoy a twist on the classic recipe by freezing the orange juice into cubes and blending it with the champagne the following day.

Pisces: a Unique Fruit Cocktail

Dreamy and otherworldly, Pisces benefit from a cocktail made from a unique fruit, like a lulo. This citrus fruit makes a deliciously tangy cocktail that will delight a Pisces’ sensitive senses. They can sip it as they lose themselves in their thoughts of tropical islands, getaways, and their dream vacation.


Sagittarius: a Negroni

Known for being adventurous and open-minded, Sagittarius loves to learn about other cultures. An Italian negroni cocktail made with gin, vermouth rosso, and Campari then garnished with orange peel is perfect for them. You might also find them trying something truly unique, like an espresso martini drizzled with chocolate. If it’s a new cocktail to them, they’re on board.


Scorpio: a Manhattan

This water sign is powerful, self-reliant, and private. A dark and mysterious Manhattan suits their sultry yet protected nature. The straightforward combination of whiskey, vermouth, and bitters greatly appeals to the no-nonsense Scorpio. Plus, the deep red color speaks to a Scorpio’s sultry nature.

Taurus: Champagne

While Taurus have a reputation for being stubborn, they’re also classy.  A glass of fine champagne is a perfect complement to their good tastes. Plus, you have to pour champagne slow and steadily, which suits a Taurus just fine. They’re likely to stick with their go-to drink for years, and champagne is available almost everywhere for their convenience.

Virgo: a Vodka Soda

Virgos are known for being straightforward with high standards. A vodka soda—made with top-shelf vodka, of course—is perfect for this earth sign. Virgos are picky about what they consume. The lack of sugar and frills in this clear cocktail will appeal to the discerning Virgo.
