Missing the beach, Cancer? A yummy Piña Colada is just what you need. And since you love a community of like-minded people, what better way to bond with someone than over some Piña Coladas and a juicy gossip sesh (we know you love it, Cancer).

Classic Old Fashioned - Leo

(July 23–August 22)

A classic blend of a rich and smooth whiskey, an Old Fashioned is often considered a bold drink, something that Leos would definitely love. Known for their strong and bold personality, the fire sign tends to be attracted to all strong things, including smoky single malts in cocktails.

Delicate, floral, and a pinch of herbal, an Elderflower Spritz is the drink that speaks to a flirty Libra soul. Filled with Vodka and Elderflower liqueur with lime and a floral garnish, this drink will instantly transport you to a field of flowers, a place that Libras truly love. The cocktail is also sweet and dependable, much like our favourite Libras.

Irish coffee - Scorpio

(October 23–November 21)

It’s a coffee and a cocktail? Hell yes! Strong and dark on the outside and sweet from the inside, Irish Coffee is that one drink that resonates perfectly with the water sign’s hard exterior with an emotional heart. But in true Scorpio fashion, underneath all the bold and strong flavours, there is a sweet aftertaste that will leave you wanting more.

Long Island Iced Tea - Sagittarius

For a risk-taking and experimental soul like Sagittarius, the LIIT is the perfect weekend drink. Just make sure you have those hangover pills ready.

Vodka Martini - Capricorn

(December 22–January 19)

It’s time for a drink every hardworking Capricorn needs to take the edge off. A Vodka Martini or a Vodkatini is a classic chilled cocktail that you need when you need an actual drink sans all the glam. Plus, it’s all business and hella practical, much like our favourite Capricorns.

Sex On The Beach - Aquarius

(January 20–February 18)

Life of the party, every Aquarius needs a drink that is sweet but also bold, much like their personality. And what better than a classic Sex On The Beach. A drink that can fool you into believing that you’re gulping down sweet fruit juice and not Vodka, Sex On The Beach is for all the wild ones, (yes, we’re looking at you, Aquarius).

Margarita - Pisces

(February 19–March 20)

An otherworldly blend of everything nice, this tequila-based drink is sweet and full of life. That’s what makes a Margarita the perfect companion to the ever-loving Pisces. Remember, add as much ice as you can.
