Need a new way to decide what cocktail to have next time you’re out and about? Maybe you should take a look at what kind of cocktail suits your astrological sign and be guided by that.
You might not be a big believer in horoscopes, or even know what the typical traits of your star sign are. But, if you follow our astrological cocktail guide, you might recognize a few characteristics as you’re reading. If you end up finding a drink that suits you, perhaps you’ll be interested in trying out an astrology reading at TheCircle. Astrologists can explain how the movements of the planets affect you in your daily life and can give you insights that you might not ever have considered otherwise. At best, you’ll discover more about yourself, and at the very least, it’ll be an entertaining and informative experience.
Aries love to have a good time and mix easily. No wonder then that they like vodka – one of the most flexible spirits out there! Try a Cosmopolitan or a Moscow Mule for size.
Taureans are laid-back but like to stand out from the crowd too. Cognac works well for this star sign – a fine drink to chill with on its own, but also great in a Sidecar or a Mata Hari.
Geminis know how to keep things buzzing at a party. They don’t do things sedately and that’s why tequila is perfect for them. Start off with a cocktail like a Tequila Sunrise to ease you into the evening.
Cancerians appreciate the finer side of life and look for a drink with a sophisticated edge. That’s exactly what you get with sake; a pretty cool choice – it makes them stand out from the crowd. Cancerians like to reveal their playful character gradually, and a Sake Champagne Mojito will allow you to do just that.
Leos love the limelight and getting plenty of attention, but can also be guarded. That could explain why Leos are so well-suited to whiskey; it’s an acquired taste. As you don’t really care whether people like you or not, choosing a drink like a Whiskey Sour makes sense.
Virgos generally draw in crowds of admirers as they’re such fun to be with. But they have a demure side to them, and that’s reflected in the gin-based cocktails they’re drawn to like a Gimlet or a Gin Fizz.
Libras go with the flow and it makes sense that their drink fits with that too. What could be more chilled than rum, in cocktails like a Pina Colada or a Mai Tai? Libras bring out the best in others, as does their favorite tipple.
Scorpios like to get everyone’s attention, and their choice of drink reflects this. They have a dark and stormy side to them too, so there’s often a bitter or spicy tang to their cocktails like the Mezcal Negroni or Ginger Snap.
Sagittarians ooze sophistication, and go for high-end cocktails that fit with their decadence. It really has to be a champagne cocktail for Sagittarians, like a Barbotage or a Mimosa.
For Capricorns, Scotch matches their level of maturity and worldly-wise nature. With its smoky bite, this is a drink for grown-ups! Scotch cocktails to test on your sophisticated palate include The Godfather and a Rusty Nail.
Aquarians may have a quiet façade, but they are party animals. Not everyone appreciates Aquarians first off, and it’s the same with absinthe - the drink that’s perfect for them. Try an absinthe cocktail like Death in the Afternoon or a Suissesse.
Pisceans often have a mysterious side to them, and a cocktail that includes Jägermeister reflects this. Its simultaneous sweet and bitter taste makes a complex brew. Try an After Dark - half dark chocolate liqueur and one part Jägermeister. Alternatively, there's the Redhead; Jäger, peach schnapps and cranberry juice in equal ratios!
