The Best Alcoholic Drinks For Your Zodiac Sign, According To Astrology

Zodiac Signs Best Alcoholic Drink Go-To Cocktail

Everyone has their go-to alcohol that they always choose when they order at the bar. Even if you think you don’t, and even if you say you like trying something new every time, you probably always end up ordering the same drink.

I know I do — I’m not afraid to say that. Of course, I’m the type of person who likes what she likes, and I almost never deviate from my favorite — no matter what kind of drink or food I’m getting.

This is actually great for me because my friends and family never have to ask me what drink I’d like from the bar since I almost ALWAYS get the same thing, which is usually white wine.

My name is Emily, and I am currently having a love affair with white wine.

I love buying those industrial-sized bottles of wine at the grocery store and I also love holding them like my baby as I walk to the cash register.

I think my obsession with white wine runs in the family since my mom, my cousin, and my aunts are all very big wine drinkers. If I spend an evening with any or all of them, we could probably kill a few of those industrial-sized bottles in a few hours.

Of course, I like rosés and reds, too, but not nearly as much as white wine. I also like liquor, but only if it's with mixers (except whiskey, that’s always good on its own).

But even if I feel like having a rum and coke or a vodka and cranberry, I never order them as often as a glass of wine or even a beer.

Of course, if you take a look at my zodiac sign, you’d see that my personal favorites when it comes to alcohol are not even close to what my horoscope says my go-to choice is (I’m an Aquarius).

But just because I’m a wine obsessive, doesn’t mean I don’t like to have some serious drinking fun every now and then… just not every weekend (not if you go by this guide).

But you could say the same for all of the signs, especially if your go-to alcohol is known for making people black out. But even still, astrology and your alcoholic drink of choice can still say a lot more about your personality than you think.

For example, you might not be a huge fan of vodka by itself, but if your personality is strong, popular, and influencing, your zodiac sign would be much more like vodka than, say, cognac.

Plus, vodka — like ALL of the alcohol here – can be made into a very delicious mixed drinks with the help of soda, juice, and other mixers (which you can find the recipes for under your own sign).

So, if you’ve always wanted to know which alcohol you are most like, according to your horoscope's star sign, keep reading. And then try some of these super yummy mixed drinks next time you’re with friends. Cheers!

ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19): Vodka

Aries Zodiac Signs Best Alcoholic Drink VODKA Go-To Cocktail

Best CocktailsCosmopolitanBloody MaryMoscow Mule

Aries, you love to have fun. It doesn't matter where you go or who you hang out with, you bring the party with you — much like vodka. Listen, if there isn't a party with vodka (or Aries), is it even a REAL party? Definitely NOT.

And just like vodka, you like getting sh*t done in the least amount of time possible. You think people sip vodka because they like the taste? No, they drink it because it gets them where they want to be fast.

And besides the fact that you and vodka are both essential at every party and in every bar, you're both also adaptable. As an Aries, you mix well with all types of people, any atmosphere, and every venue; just like vodka mixes well with all kinds of juice, soda, and energy drink.

TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20): Cognac

Taurus Zodiac Signs Best Alcoholic Drink Cognac Go-To Cocktail

Best CocktailsSidecarThe SummitMata Hari

Aries, no one does chill like you do, Taurus, which makes you one-of-a-kind and a great person to hang out with on lazy days. But just because you sometimes feel like being lazy doesn't mean you have to be a total couch potato.

I mean, for all anyone cares, you could sit in a three-piece suit on the couch all day and not care one bit what others think of you; kind of like cognac. Is that a weird way to describe it? Because like you, cognac is smooth, chill, and oh-so-fine.

Cognac is what interesting people like to drink, which is why this is your go-to alcohol. You can still be lazy and drink it on the couch, don't worry (because NO ONE drinks cognac at the club), but it's still a drink that helps you keep that cool, fascinating personality you have on lock.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Tequila

Gemini Zodiac Signs Best Alcoholic Drink Tequila Go-To Cocktail

Best CocktailsMargaritaPalomaTequila Sunrise

Gemini, you are a whirlwind, Gemini, and anyone who has met you — even for a second — will agree with me on that. You want to have fun, you want to get crazy, and sometimes, you want to take all of your clothes off.

And what better alcohol to help you do that than tequila! Like tequila, you are bold and you refuse to be ignored. Think about it; how many times have you and your friends chanted "shots!" until the bartender poured you all some tequila? Exactly.

Another thing you and tequila have in common is that you are both a LOT of trouble. Think about what happened the night after all of those tequila shots. Don't remember? I'm not surprised. Tequila is dangerous and so are you, and both of you are always taking things wayyyy too far.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22): Sake

Cancer Zodiac Signs Best Alcoholic Drink Sake Go-To Cocktail

Best CocktailsStrawberry Mint SpritzerSake Champagne MojitoKyoto Sour

Cancer, you know how to have fun (it's true), but in a classy way that not everyone is down for. You're kind of like a chic wine mixer, but some people would rather be at a party where they end up puking in someone's front yard; hey, to each his own, right?

But it doesn't really matter if you're everyone's taste because neither is your go-to alcohol: sake. It's kind of like good wine and it's kind of like good vodka, but however someone describes it, it's just like you: chic.

Sake isn't something you drink when you want to get hammered. It's something you drink when you really want to savor the alcohol. Like this drink, you're a little different, but totally playful. Little hints of your personality show through once someone gets to know you better, which is what keeps people coming back for more.

LEO (July 23 - Aug 22): Whiskey

Leo Zodiac Signs Best Alcoholic Drink whiskey Go-To Cocktail

Best Cocktails: Irish CoffeeMint JulepOld-Fashioned

Leo, everyone knows you're not afraid to be the center of attention, but only a few people can really get to know the real you. It's not so much that you don't open up to others, but more so that others don't know how to handle you at first.

Still not getting it? Let's try this: Your go-to alcohol is whiskey because like it, you're bold and popular, but not everyone's preferred drink. You're definitely an acquired taste that is only meant for a select few worthy enough for you.

You can adapt to certain situations, but you try not cheapening yourself by mixing with the wrong crowd. You would MUCH rather stay your glamorous self without worrying if everyone likes you or not.

VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22): Gin

Virgo Zodiac Signs Best Alcoholic Drink gin Go-To Cocktail

Best CocktailsMartiniNegroniGimlet

As a Virgo, you know that drinking doesn't have to only be for stuffy, old people and it definitely doesn't have to only be for college frat boys. When you drink, you try to keep the evening as thoughtful and classy as you are, which only works if you have the right drink in your hand.

And that drink, my dear friend, is gin. Gin is certainly not for everyone and, pardon my honesty, can leave a bitter taste in someone's mouth the first time (just like you can). But that doesn't mean you — or gin — are gross.

In fact, the bite that makes gin so deliciously decadent is exactly what makes YOU so similar to it. People are often surprised by the taste of gin and the fantastic cocktails a little splash of the alcohol can make, but that's only what keeps them coming back for more of it (and you).

LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22): Rum

Libra Zodiac Signs Best Alcoholic Drink Rum Go-To Cocktail

Best Cocktails: DaiquiriPiña ColadaDark & Stormy

Libra, who loves a party that doesn't feel like a party? You do, Libra! You're all about comfort and easiness, which is why you'd probably show up to work in sweatpants and no bra if it were acceptable (if it is, I want to know where you work).

So, it only stands to reason that your alcohol of choice would be as easy-going and low-key as you are; but still be a lot of fun, of course. And the next time you're ready to chill with friends on a Friday night, rum is your go-to.

Rum is awesome on its own and even better with mixers, just like you're a party by yourself AND with your friends. You bring out the best in everyone around you and you know that being fun doesn't also have to mean being crazy or over-the-top kind of like rum!

SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21): Moonshine

Scorpio Zodiac Signs Best Alcoholic Drink Moonshine Go-To Cocktail

Best CocktailsRaspberry FizzBee StingGinger Snap

You’re a Scorpio, which means you demand attention and always make an entrance, no matter where you are. Your strong personality, stunning looks, and your ability to have all eyes on you at any time makes you Queen Bee.

But just because you think you’re the bomb-dot-com doesn’t mean you don’t intimidate people every now and then — just like your go-to alcohol can. Moonshine isn’t for everyone — obviously. Ask someone if they want to drink moonshine and they either cringe or say something like, “hell yeah!” Basically, you either love it or you hate it.

And with a personality like yours, Scorpio, this all or nothing feeling is eerily similar. But whether someone loves you or can’t stand you, there’s one thing no one can deny: you’re a hardcore bad ass that knows how to make an impression.

You like moonshine because it doesn’t pull any punches and it’ll mess you up fast, which is exactly how you like to live your life. You’re a “harsh, but true” personality that needs a drink to match. And nothing says “what you see is what you get” quite like moonshine and you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19): Champagne

Sagittarius Zodiac Signs Best Alcoholic Drink Champagne Go-To Cocktail

Best CocktailsFrench 75Black VelvetMimosa

You are the definition of glamorous, Sagittarius, which is why your go-to alcohol should be the exact same. You hate hanging around with anyone that makes you look sloppy, immature, or messy by default, so you always try to surround yourself with people that you hope will help you elevate your status.

And when you drink, you know you need to keep up your glam appearance instead of drinking bottom-shelf liquor. That’s why you always reach for champagne at a party or in the club – and not the cheap kind, either. Like champagne, you’re totally classic and intriguing with a bubbly personality to match.

Champagne is usually reserved for fabulous brunches and the VIP section at the club, so it can seem a little out of place if you see it at a party in someone’s basement… like you, Sagittarius.

You’re known for being extra, and when you’re not out doing something extra, it can be a shock to everyone who knows you. Who knew champagne and Sagittarius could be chill, too?

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19): Scotch

Capricorn Zodiac Signs Best Alcoholic Drink scotch Go-To Cocktail

Best CocktailsThe GodfatherBlood & SandThe Penicillin

Capricorn, whenever I think of scotch, I think of someone in a velvet smoking jacket drinking it out of a crystal glass in front of a fireplace… so, in short, a very sophisticated scene.

And if anyone can make that scene come to life without anyone so much as batting an eye, it’s you, Capricorn. You can be incredibly sophisticated when you’re at your best (and a little biting when you’re not), which is why scotch isn’t just your go-to alcohol, it’s also the alcohol you most identify with.

You know the value of being able to just exude maturity and sophistication, so it only makes sense that the alcohol you drink can do the same. Scotch is something that adults tend to drink, not something you sneak out of your parents’ liquor cabinet when you plan on getting drunk with your friends at the playground.

So, by that logic alone, you’re already a lot more mature than some of the other signs. But everything in moderation, right? Just because you’re a top-shelf kind of person doesn’t mean you can’t get into trouble, too. Just remember that next time you want to have some fun and liquor is involved.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18): Absinthe

Aquarius Zodiac Signs Best Alcoholic Drink absinthe Go-To Cocktail

Best CocktailsThe Jaded LadySazeracThe Sleepy Hollow

Remember that time you tried absinthe for the first time, Aquarius, and you couldn’t remember how you ended up wearing someone else’s clothes or how you got that huge bruise on your forehead? Yeah, me neither.

A night with you is like a night of drinking nothing but absinthe — totally wild and a night you’ll never forget (well, a night you’ll never forget you blacked out after a few shots). You can be unassuming at first, but people NEVER realize how hardcore you can be after a few hours with you (or absinthe).

You’re definitely different, like this alcohol, and certainly not everyone’s first choice, but that doesn’t mean you’re not fun, interesting, and a little dangerous (in a good way). You know how to make an impression, Aquarius, and trust me when I say people will be talking about their night with you for the next week — just like their night with the green fairy.

But just like absinthe, you’re best in short bursts. You highly value your alone time and just being lazy, and going out every night isn’t your thing. Which is probably a good thing since drinking absinthe every night sounds like trouble.

PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20): Jägermeister

Pisces Zodiac Signs Best Alcoholic Drink Jägermeister Go-To Cocktail

Best CocktailsBed of RosesColt 45The Widow Maker

Pisces, you aren’t afraid to be underestimated because, honestly, you like surprising people. Some people consider you to be a push-over, while others think your caring nature is an attempt to make you seem more likable, but in reality, you’re sugar and spice and everything nice — kind of like your alcohol of choice.

Not everyone is convinced Jägermeister is anything more than battery acid, but it’s actually a complex liquor that packs a big punch – like you do, Pisces. Instead of being one-sided like some say it is, your personality is complex and deep, and not just for show. If you and Jäger share anything in common, it’s this.

More than being a complex character, Pisces, your personality can be similar to what someone feels when they drink Jäger. Whether you drink it straight or with a mixer, you can’t deny that Jäger is a sultry flavor with a little bit of sweetness and a little bit of bitterness.

Your personality is similar; you’re a little sweet and a little spicy, but very sultry. That’s what makes you so irresistible and so mysterious at the same time.
