As the Holiday season is approaching its peak, so it the frenzy of holiday parties. If you are tired of the same old wine, beer or mixed drink staples for your gathering, pour out those stale beverage choices and grab hold of the most fitting refresher for your astrological sign.
Aries: Male or female tend to like manly drinks like whisky, bourbon, gin or scotch on the rocks. Aries woman also have a preference for Cosmopolitan. Remember they can outdo anybody as far as shots are concerned. To recover after a night’s party, plenty of Gatorade.
Taurus: Taurus prefers to drink at a leisurely pace, aiming for a mellow glow rather than a full-on zonk. A vintage pink wine or classic brand beers like Sam Adams, Budweiser, Heineken or Beck’s will suit their mood.
Gemini: Mixed drinks in order to avoid boring repetition. Wine tastings and drink sampling will also keep Gemini’s talking and entertained.
Cancer: House parties are Cancer’s favorite as well as any cocktail that shows the best local produce of a region. Think sangria, mojito or margarita will put a crab in heaven.
Leo: Crown Royal. Need I to say anything more?
Virgo: Specialty wines and micro-brewed beers may appeal to Virgo’s love of craft. Cocktails with green garnishes or themes such as mint juleps, Midori Sours and Grasshoppers may pique your Virgin’s curiosity and love of all things earthy. And for the health conscious Virgo, milk. It does the body good you know.
Libra: The elegance of champagne and champagne cocktails (think Mimosas) consumed in stylish glassware in a pleasant environment.
Scorpio: Sex on the beach, screwdriver, screaming orgasm
Sagittarius: Imported beers. The travel-loving Archer might be intrigued by the flair of international drinks such as the popular Brazilian Caipirinha, Moscow mules, Singapore slings, perhaps even a Long Island iced tea.
Capricorn: Capricorn likes cocktails just like they are — classic and on the dry side. Gin and tonic, standard martinis (prepared with gin, please, not vodka, stirred not shaken) and drinks without frills or fruit garnishes make Cap’s happy. And do not listen to them if they tell you they only drink on social occasions.
Aquarius: Aquarius is likely to order stuff most people have never heard of a Satan’s whiskers, a negroni, an Arthur Tompkins. They like to stump the bartender. This sign rules the color electric blue and would be pleased by any tipple featuring blue curacao. Since their taste tends towards the quirky, they are still probably doing “Jello shots”.
Pisces: Whatever your drinking. Pretty much anything will satisfy a Pisces in a pinch. Pisces picks up subtle flavors better than anyone, and will especially enjoy wine tasting or sampling cocktails. Favorite summer drinks of the Fish may include Fish House Punch (rum, Cognac, lemon juice, peach brandy).
