September 28, 2022 by Anna-Bet Stemmet

Wondering which cocktail to serve your bestie on their birthday? Or perhaps you’re getting ready to host a birthday party at home and feeling low on inspo in the signature drinks department? We’ve got you sorted. Here are a few tailor-made cocktail suggestions based on the quirky personalities of the 12 zodiac signs! 


Bloody Mary Cocktail

Aries is the fiery spice of the zodiac, with innate kindness that stems from the understanding of what it means to be human. Those born under this sign are fierce believers in justice and karma. They are exciting, energetic, driven, and especially bold and fearless when doing what is right. 

Dynamic, confident, and impulsive, this sign loves a challenge. We recommend a spicy number like the Mexican Martini or Bloody Mary 


Hot Apple Cider Cocktail

Taurus is the healer of the zodiac, always reaching for a better and clearer understanding of the world, they are ambitious and can be quite stubborn when it comes to working, but feel best in cozy and comfortable environments. They are patient, yearn for peace and leave a sense of calmness in their wake.  

Treat a Taurus to a super cozy drink like a Hot Apple Cider Cocktail, or Apple Pie Moonshine 


Bee's Knees Cocktail on a dinner setting

Gemini is the talker and connector of the zodiac, known to create bridges between ideas, possibilities, fantasies, and reality. They are energetic and fill people around them with love and joy. Their endearing personalities are underpinned by deep insight and the ability to see a higher meaning in the seemingly mundane.  

Pour a Gemini a flirtatious, exuberant cocktail like the Mojito or Bee’s Knees.  


Spicy Margarita

Cancer is the ‘feeler’ of the zodiac. They are vulnerable, yet strong, quite careful, and fiercely loyal. They have a special connection with animals and are innately empathetic.  

Cancers also love slightly off-kilter sensory experiences that keep them on their toes. Treat them to a tricksy drink like the Spicy Margarita or Poison Apple. 


French 75 Cocktail

Leo is the caretaker of the zodiac. They love the spotlight and receiving attention, and are very passionate when inspired. They hide their sensitivity, but will loudly cheer on their friends and loved ones.  

Leos are all about streamers and glitter – get them clinking with a peppy party drink like the French 75 or Champagne Martini.  


Tequila Sunrise

Virgo is the advisor of the zodiac. These talented individuals love structure and organization, and are deeply solution-oriented, serving as great listeners and providing a strong support system for those around them.  

Give the hard-working Virgo a fresh, summery-tasting break with a carefree cocktail like the Golden Dream or Tequila Sunrise 


Mint Julep

Libra is the virtuoso of the zodiac. They are big into details and aesthetics, balance, and harmony. They love mental stimulation and listen carefully in order to gain a better understanding of both the person and the subject in any conversation.  

Lean into the Libra’s love of balance by serving up a perfectly balanced Old Fashioned or Mint Julep.  


Aviation Cocktail

Scorpio is the detective of the zodiac. They have a strong natural sense of intuition and are practically impossible to deceive. They are humorous, passionate, and enticing, and see success as a vital part of their destiny.  

Intrigue the Scorpio with a slightly mysterious cocktail like the Aviation or French Connection 


Kir Royale Cocktail

Sagittarius is the free spirit of the zodiac. They are keen interpreters of life lessons and natural networkers who crave deep and meaningful connections. Optimistic and spontaneous, they are often the life of the party.  

Give the bow-bearer an extra reason to get festive with the celebratory Twinkle Cocktail or Kir Royale 


Witches Brew Cocktail

Capricorn is the artisan of the zodiac. They learn fast and have a realistic outlook on life even though they love to fantasize. These individuals prefer a small, close-knit circle and speak their honest intentions directly.  

Pour the playful Capricorn a fun-loving cocktail like a Baby Yoda or Witches Brew 


Vesper Martini

Aquarius is the innovator of the zodiac, with a captivating, one-of-a-kind personality. They are always on the lookout for ways to improve the world and see things for what they really are.  

Aquarians like to go against the grain, so delight them with a slightly rebellious cocktail like the Vesper Martini or French Kiss 


Clover Club Cocktail

Pisces is the poet of the zodiac. They can see and move through emotional walls, and speak from the heart. Deeply intuitive, yet playful, they always dance on the border between fantasy and reality.  

Play into the sweet, dreamy Pisces nature with a fanciful cocktail like the Clover Club or French Martini
