The Best Cocktails For Each Star Sign

Can you think of anything better than a cocktail in the sun right now? No, neither can I. The sunny seasons are finally here and a drink in hand is a staple summer essential, alongside our sunnies and our SPF.  Bored of a simple G&T and looking to level up? Here’s what you should be mixing up with the best zodiac cocktails for each star sign 

zodiac cocktails

Aquarius 

With your high-energy creative side and your openness to try new things, you’re not one to run away from big flavours. Changing up tradition is in your nature, so a pink champagne sangria is a perfect cocktail for aAquarius, combining a Spanish bohemian favourite with a fresh twist. 

To make a full pitcher, you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup water 
  • 1/2 cup sugar 
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint chopped 
  • 2 cups ruby red grapefruit juice 
  • 1 cup Pomegranate juice 
  • 1 bottle Barefoot Bubbly Pink Moscato 
  • sliced grapefruit, pomegranate, and fresh mint for garnish

1. Heat water, sugar, and chopped mint in a small saucepan over medium/high heat. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Allow to simmer for about 10 minutes. Set aside. This makes a syrup to keep your sangria sweet with rich flavours. If you’re in a rush though, you can skip this and simply combine all the ingredients well. 

2. In a pitcher, combine the mint simple syrup, both juices, and the full bottle of pink champagne. Stir to combine. 

3. Throw in grapefruit slices and pomegranate, chill for a couple of hours then enjoy. 

Pisces  

Though on the surface you may seem reserved and classic, there’s a risk-taker hidden underneath. You like classics with a twist, so try out a pink negroni infusing a staple cocktail with new flavours of Aperol. 

  • 35ml pink gin 
  • 25ml rose vermouth
  • 15ml Aperol 
  • Ice 
  • A wedge of pink grapefruit to garnish 

Combine the pink gin, vermouth and Aperol in a tumbler with a small handful of ice. Stir until the outside of the glass feels cold and serve.

Aries 

Aries traits are all based around being bold and ambitious, so try a drink to suit. The best Aries zodiac cocktail has to be a mai tai with big flavour to match your vibe. 

  • 2 tbsp white rum 
  • 2 tbsp dark rum 
  • 2 tbsp triple sec 
  • 1 tbsp grenadine 
  • 1 tbsp almond syrup  
  • Juice of half a lime 
  • Maraschino cherries to serve 

Simply stir all the ingredients together in a jug or shake them in a cocktail shaker. Pour over ice and garnish with a cherry.

Taurus 

You live for extravagance and luxury, so if a Taurus were a cocktail, you’d definitely be a martini. Mix in a nod to your more sensitive side with a fruity twist and try a peach martini, we’re dreaming about one right now. 

  • 60ml vanilla vodka 
  • 30ml peach schnapps 
  • 60ml peach nectar 
  • 15ml fresh lime juice 
  • Ice cubes 
  • Peach slice, for garnish 

Just shake all the ingredients together in a cocktail shaker, serve and enjoy.

Gemini

The Gemini personality is built on duplicity. Half of you prefers the sweet side to life, and half wants something a little sour; so, get the best of both worlds. The best cocktail for your zodiac; a pomegranate margarita, the perfect mix of sweet and salty. 

  • 2 Lime wedges 
  • Salt 
  • Ice 
  • 125ml white tequila 
  • 60ml Triple Sec 
  • 120ml pomegranate juice 
  • 1 lime, juiced  
  • Soda water 

1.  Pour the salt onto a plate or shallow dish. With a lime wedge, rub the rim of each glass. Dip the glasses upside down into the salt, to salt the rims. Fill the glasses with ice. 

2. In a cocktail shaker with ice, add the tequila, triple sec, pomegranate juice and lime juice. Shake it up then pour into your salt-rimmed glasses and top off with some soda water. 

3. Garnish each glass with a lime wedge and enjoy in the sun.

Libra 

You’re romantic and always looking for the best. You like everything to be fair and in its right place, so opt for a cocktail that’s easy drinking and not too harsh on the palette. How about a cosmopolitan? 

  • 45ml lemon vodka
  • 15ml triple sec 
  • 30ml cranberry juice 
  • 10ml lime juice 
  • Ice 

Simply shake all the ingredients well with ice and strain into a glass. So easy, so tasty.

Scorpios

You’re independent and unafraid to ruffle a few feathers. Your zodiac cocktail needs to be something a little different and not too sweet. A whiskey sour is rich with a twist, the perfect drink for your dark side. 

  • 50ml bourbon 
  • 35ml lemon juice 
  • 12ml sugar syrup 
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters 
  • ½ fresh egg white 
  • Ice

Sagittarius

  • Ice 
  • 100ml vodka 
  • 1 tbsp sugar syrup 
  • 50ml freshly brewed espresso coffee 
  • 50ml coffee liqueur

Capricorns 

Capricorns signs are careful by day and fun-loving by night, so your cocktail needs to be something to reflect your caution and your chaos. Nothing does both quite like a long island iced tea; easy drinking but hard-hitting. It’s easiest to make this in a bigger batch, so this recipe makes 4 tall glasses.

  • 50ml vanilla vodka 
  • 50ml  gin 
  • 50ml tequila  
  • 50ml rum 
  • 50ml triple sec 
  • 50-100ml fresh lime juice 
  • Ice 
  • 500ml cola 
  • limes cut into wedges 

1. Pour the vodka, gin, tequila, rum and triple sec into a large jug and add lime juice to taste. Half fill the jug with ice, then stir until the outside feels cold. 

2. Once all the booze is combined, slowly pour in your coke and add in your lime wedges and stir again before serving.
