If you don’t know your star sign, don’t worry. We’ve placed the dates for each sign below so you can find out what you are, and drink accordingly.

Aries | Old Fashioned

March 21 - April 19

Did you know that the Old Fashioned is the most popular cocktail in the world? That’s why Aries love it so much – because Aries also like to be number one. The boldness of this drink speaks to the outgoing personality of this sign and the citrus in this drink matches the energetic sign of an Aries.

  1. Add ingredients to a mixing glass
  2. Add ice to mixing glass and serving glass
  3. Stir ingredients for 30-40 seconds
  4. Strain into serving glass
  5. Garnish with orange peel

Taurus | French 75

April 20 - May 20

Taureans enjoy the finer things in life and love to sip and savor every moment. So, for them, we have chosen the French 75. This is a classic with a twist that is simple, yet exquisite (and expensive.)

  4. Top with Champagne
  5. Garnish with a lemon twist and serve

Gemini | Summer Spritz

May 21 - June 20

Geminis are known for being indecisive so it’s better to not force decisions where they aren’t entirely necessary, like cocktails. Instead of trying to craft the ideal drink, Geminis are left better to the devices of someone else to decide for them. Something like a summer spritz is a safe way to go – you know it will be tasty but you don’t have to make all the decisions of what goes in it.


  • ½ grapefruit
  • 4 oz dry
  • Prosecco
  • 1/12 oz fresh grapefruit juice
  • ½ oz Aperol ½ oz vodka
  • Club soda Grapefruit peel garnish

What to do:

  1. Place the spiral garnish in a rocks glass or large wine glass
  2. Fill with ice and add Prosecco, grapefruit juice, Aperol, vodka, and a splash of club soda
  3. Gently stir together and serve

Cancer | Sangria

June 21 - July 22

Cancers love being at home and few things speak drinking at home quite like a big pitcher of sangria. This drink is meant to be shared with friends or family in a comfortable space, and that is something that Cancers love to do.

Ingredients (for a pitcher):

  • 2 bottles Spanish red wine
  • ½ cup brandy
  • 2 oranges, one juiced and one diced
  • 1 green apple, diced
  • 1 lemon, diced 1 cinnamon stick
  • Simple syrup or maple syrup
  • Optional: sparkling water

What to do:

  1. Add the wine, brandy, orange juice, diced orange, diced apple, diced lemon, and cinnamon stick to a large pitcher
  2. Stir to combine
  3. Taste and add in a bit of sweetener
  4. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours
  5. Serve the sangria over ice, topping each glass off with a splash of sparkling water

Leo | Espresso Martini

July 23 - August 22

Leos are known for their extravagance so they need a drink that matches that. An espresso martini is quite extravagant and also matches the high energy of this star sign that helps move them to be the center of attention (which we all know they love.)


  • 1 oz espresso coffee
  • ½ oz Kahlua

What to do:

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and vodka, espresso, and Kahlua
  2. Shake vigorously until ingredients are combined and chilled
  3. Strain into a martini glass until froth forms on the top
  4. Serve

Virgo | Gin & Tonic

August 23 - September 22

Virgos tend to be straightforward and simple (in a good way,) so we think the cocktail for them is a classic gin and tonic. This drink is a no-nonsense drink that gives you exactly what you think you’re going to get, and that’s a safe bet for a Virgo.


  • 1 ½ oz gin
  • 5 oz tonic water

What to do:

  1. Fill a cop glass with lots of ice and pour gin over it
  2. Top with tonic water
  3. Garnish and serve

Libra | Mimosa

September 23 - October 22

The sign of a Libra is scales, which means they are a balanced sign that is into symmetry. Thus, it makes sense for them to also like a balanced cocktail. If you make mimosas the want they are intended, they are equal parts orange juice and equal parts Champagne, making them the perfect balanced drink for Libras.


  • Champagne or sparkling wine
  • Orange juice

What to do:

  1. Pour the Champagne or sparkling wine into a flute, filling about half full
  2. Pour the orange juice on top, filling the glass
  3. Serve

Scorpio | Margarita

October 23 - November 21

If there is one thing that Scorpios are known for it is their lack of showing emotion. Don’t get us wrong – they are emotional beings but don’t always show it. Instead, they prefer to hide in mystery. That’s why we think a margarita is a perfect fit for them. The tequila is in there, but you don’t always taste it.


  • 2 oz blanco tequila
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • ½ oz triple sec
  • Salt for rim
  • Lime wedge for garnish

What to do:

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add tequila, lime juice, and triple sec
  2. Shake
  3. Pour with the ice into a highball or footed glass
  4. Garnish with lime and serve

Sagittarius | Negroni

November 22 - December 21

Sagittariuses have a lot of interest in other cultures, so a drink that takes them outside of their own culture is a good one to go with. We chose a Negroni because this drink originates from Italy and also represents taking risks, which is something that Sagittariuses love to do.


  • 1 oz gin
  • 1 oz Campari
  • 1 oz sweet vermouth
  • Orange garnish

What to do:

  1. Fill a mixing glass or cocktail shaker with ice and add gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth
  2. Using a cocktail spoon, give the drink a few quick turns
  3. Strain into a tumbler filled with large ice cubes
  4. Garnish with orange twice, slice or peel, and serve

Capricorn | Martini

December 22 - January 19

Capricorns are known for being straightforward. Whether you like it or not, this sign is straight to the point and transparent, so it makes sense that their drink would also be to the point and not have any unnecessary fluff. That’s why the drink of choice for a Capricorn is a martini.


  • Ice
  • 2 ½ oz vodka
  • ½ oz dry vermouth
  • Green olive or strip of lemon zest for garnish

What to do for shaken:

  1. Freeze martini glass for 15 minutes
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice
  3. Add the vodka and vermouth and shake until chilled
  4. Strain into a martini glass
  5. Garnish and serve

What to do for stirred:

  1. Pour vodka and vermouth into a mixing glass or cocktail shaker filled with ice
  2. Stir vigorously for about 20 seconds
  3. Strain into a martini glass
  4. Garnish and serve

Aquarius | Caipirinha

January 20 - February 18

Those who are born under the Aquarius star sign are known to be on the more free-spirited side which is why we think they will love a cocktail that is tasty but has some oomph to it, like a Caipirinha. It is the perfect mix of sweet and sour, which Aquariuses can sometimes be.


  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • ½ lime, cut into quarters
  • 1 oz cachaca

What to do:

  1. Add 2 quarters of lime into a glass with 2 tsp sugar
  2. Muddle together using a muddler, wooden spoon, or small rolling pin
  3. Add ice
  4. Pour cachaca over
  5. Stir and serve

Pisces | Absinthe

February 19 - March 20

As the last constellation of the Zodiac, Pisces are wise. Which allows them also to be a bit more dreamy than the other signs. When it comes to drinks, Pisces love something otherworldly, and for that we choose absinthe. This magical drink will take them to a new place.


  • 1 ½ oz absinthe
  • 4 ½ oz chilled Champagne

What to do:

  1. Pour the absinthe in a coupe glass
  2. Top slowly with Champagne
