Just as your horoscope says a lot about you (if you’re into that, of course), so does your go-to cocktail. Here, the type of beverage to sip based on your star sign. Just be sure to use a coaster should Mercury go into retrograde. (And check out the top 100 cocktails of 2018 here.)
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20-FEBRUARY 18): APEROL SPRITZ
Some people might consider you independent and eccentric, but we know that’s just code for trendsetter. You were the first to rock kitten heels, try your hand with the Instant Pot and dye your hair “root beer brown.” So naturally you’re the first to make this old-timey Italian aperitif (made with Aperol, Champagne and club soda) cool again.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19-MARCH 20): SPIKED ARNOLD PALMER
People know you as compassionate, gentle and a little bit dreamy. Your happy place? Tinkering away on your own with your oil paints or a box of artsy old Polaroids. This sweet, refreshing and light iced tea cocktail is totally OK to sip in the late afternoon while you contemplate your next masterpiece.
ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19): MANHATTAN
You’re the type of lady who’ll stride into a bar after work (wearing a bad-ass power suit or romper), order this strong rye whiskey-based cocktail and enjoy the effect you have on everyone within earshot. Yes, of course, you’ll take it in the rocks glass—and of course you’ll have a second. After all, you like to get a little loose before you beat everyone at pool later in the night.
TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20): GIN AND TONIC
Practical, well-grounded and conservative (but loveably so), you’ve always gone for strong, fairly-priced and classic libations. Case in point: The iconic G&T. Want to shake things up? Go crazy and order it with mango and juniper, which draw out the botanical taste of the gin.
GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20): WHISKEY SOUR
As an indecisive lady, you’re always changing your dinner order last minute. (What if you get a healthy salad but then have soul-crushing food envy when your husband’s burger arrives?) The story’s exactly the same at the bar. That’s why this whiskey cocktail—that’s sweet and tart and boozy and frothy––is sure to satisfy without making you feel like you’re missing out.
