Humans have been drinking alcoholic beverages since the dawn of time (and there’s no sign of it stopping). If you’re currently gearing up for a night on the town sipping cocktails with all your favorite people, you might want to ask your bartender for your favorite drink of the zodiac sign order. According to the stars, it might just hit that sweet spot.
While having a beer or uncorking a bottle of wine can be satisfying, there’s nothing quite like the decadent feeling of order a cocktail of a mixologist who knows what he’s doing. Whether you’re hitting the swankiest and most exclusive lounges or whipping up drinks in your apartment’s tiny kitchen, a well-made cocktail will never be something to celebrate. Not only can it turn an ordinary night into a special night, but you feel classy doing it.
A cocktail is filled with many different layers. This contains notes that could be strong, botanical, fruity, sweet, tangy, bitter, spicy or even smoky. And like every sign of the zodiac, a cocktail has many different facets. From the moment it touches your lips to the moment it cascades down your throat, the experience of drinking a cocktail has many peaks and valleys. By understanding the cocktail that captures each zodiac sign, you’ll have an even better and sillier image.understanding of yourself. Here’s why:
The cocktail that captures every sign of the zodiac
When you’re ready for a night on the town, you pull it all out! You are not here to take slow, small sips until you gradually get a buzz. If you don’t order tequila shots upfront, you ask your bartender for a Cadillac margarita and you don’t skimp on the Grand Marnier! And while you might not have the stomach for two or three…or four…you at least start the night off with one.
You are ruled by Venus, the planet of luxury and sensuality, and nothing captures the feeling of taking time out to relax more than a piña colada. Between the way its creamy coconut coats your tongue and the way the rum coats your throat, it will have you dreaming of tropical getaways and boozy nights on the town with your best friends. You have no problem ordering the most decadent thing on the bar menu!
If you’re a Gemini, you know you have places to go and people to see. That’s why an espresso martini covers all your bases (and it satisfies your desire to feel like a rocket flying through you). Vodka lowers your inhibitions and improves your conversational skills, while caffeine keeps you conversational well into the wee hours of the night. You want to feel energized by your cocktail, not ready to fall asleep!
There’s no cocktail with a warmer vibe than a Moscow mule. Between the glistening copper mug he always walks into and the refreshing ginger beer flavor that kicks in right after the vodka, you’re in heaven! Cancers crave a sense of security on their social outings, and a Moscow mule gives them something soft to hold on to. Plus, it never gets old, and it’s hard for a bartender to go wrong. The more you drink, the more you feel at home!
Not only are the flavors of a mojito both sweet and refreshing, but you look like a diva swirling mint leaves in ice with your straw while you chat with friends. Nothing makes you feel as fancy as a well-made mojito, which is why only opt for freshly squeezed lime juice and premium white rum! If you can tell your bartender didn’t put their heart and soul into the drink, you know it just won’t taste as good.
You enjoy drinking alcohol, but your association with upset bellies means you are more discerning about what you choose to drink. With a penicillin, you get a bold dose of Scotch whiskey, but you also get the lemon juice, honey and ginger to wash it down! This cocktail is often garnished with a delicious piece of ginger candy, which calms your stomach as soon as you start feeling the alcohol-induced indigestion. Plus you look so cocktail savvy when you order it!
Nothing classier than a bright orange Aperol spritz! Its bittersweet botanical flavors make it an aromatic experience and it won’t sour your breath. Its bold, brassy look matches every one of your carefully styled ensembles. While it’s not ridiculously heavy in alcohol, it’s definitely packed with flavor, making you feel like you’re drunk the “I’m in love” type, rather than the “my life is over” type.
Dark, but romantic. Bitter, but sweet. Mysterious, but obvious. You are the most enigmatic sign of the zodiac of all, but you are also the most intense. That’s why a classic Manhattan satisfies you on all fronts! Rye whiskey allows you to let your guard down and reveal your secrets to others. Cherry brandy makes you want to invite someone to your house. Oh, and the cut glass it arrives in still matches your all-black outfit.
The Negroni is like a cousin of the Aperol Spritz, but there is something much more intense about this one. While you love the sparkling, lemony flavors of Campari and the bold dose of liquor in gin, it’s the bite of vermouth that brings out your wild side. Oh, and because you know you’re always in the mood to try something new, you should jump on the trend of using “spaciago”, which involves a more subtle, romantic Prosecco instead of vermouth!
No cocktail gives off Mad Men vibrates more than the Old Fashioned. And because you like to feel like a boss, you’re always looking for a mixologist who knows how to make a *real* Old Fashioned. If someone dares to make you this classic bourbon cocktail with orange slices and a maraschino cherry, you’ll know they’re never coming back. Come on folks, a true Old Fashioned should only be served with a twist of orange (and a scoop of pressed ice cream to boot)!
For you, it’s not so much about what you drink, but about *who* you drink with. Aquarius is often a social and communal zodiac sign that enjoys getting together with people, even if they are shy. When you invite everyone over for brunch and bottomless mimosas, it instantly breaks the ice! You can make your mimosa as strong or as light as you want and you can easily fill pitchers with it to get everyone buzzing throughout the afternoon.
You don’t mind the blue lagoons being bright blue from curacao and high in sugar from lemonade. In fact, you secretly prefer it, because you *know* you’re awesome. You are someone who wants to be transported to a different reality when you drink something alcoholic. Not only does the cool color remind you of tropical turquoise water, but the added softness takes it to a whole new level of fantasy. Remember to protect your energy while drinking!
