If your astrological sign is an Aquarius, you should celebrate the season with a signature cocktail crafted by the Cocktail Collective bartenders at Rosina Cocktail Lounge (The Palazzo), The Dorsey Cocktail Bar (The Venetian) and Electra Cocktail Club (The Venetian).
“The Aquarius cocktail is a riff on a Vesper martini,” says Juyoung Kang, lead bartender at The Dorsey and creator of the cocktail. “It’s similar to a 50/50 martini where the base is one half a spirit (gin) and the other half a modifier (blanc vermouth and sherry).” With all of these elements combined, the signature drink is part class and part sass.
For the Aquarians out there, Kang says it’s a “booze forward cocktail but a more balanced version of a martini.” It calms your nerves with blue hues, botanicals and a citrus airiness only an Aquarius can exude.
You can try this recipe at home or if you decide to visit one of the Cocktail Collective bars on your birthday, you’ll receive half-off on your first zodiac cocktail. It’s the perfect way to show off your intellectual, free-spirited and eccentric personality.
