Holiday drinks sure to fill your zodiac sign with cheer
What holiday drink best fits your astrological needs? Is it a cup of hot cocoa that's like a hug, or something citrus infused with a festive dash of booze? Here's some holiday drink inspiration for the twelve zodiac signs.
When the weather outside is frightful, a holiday drink is delightful.
Besides, 'tis the season for Sugar spice and something spiked.
Many zodiac signs may feel a bit run over by reindeer and holiday cheer. But don't worry. There's an astrologically based fix for that: the holiday drink tailored to your star sign.
It's certain to be what your zodiac sign needs to wash away that holiday stress. And if you have a few, it might even have you decking the walls and singing jingle bells at the top of your lungs. Cheers!
Aries (March 21 - April 19) Mulled wine
Spiced warm, boozy and just simply nice. What you need, my dear fire sign, is a mug filled to the brim with steaming mulled wine. It's like you, warm, comforting, has the ability to pack a real punch.
What's more, it usually brings a bit of welcome spice to any boring work holiday party.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Hot buttered rum
Butter, rum, boiling water, sugar and spices, this drink has an old soul just like you, Taurus. But it can be surprisingly bold. Per the Joy of Cooking by Irma S. Rombauer, the very prude Pilgrims used to make it, though "this drink has been said to make a man see double and feel single."
This might be exactly what you need to find your holiday romance.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Holiday Punch
As a Gemini you weren't born during the holidays, but this time of the year speaks to your social and bubbly nature. As does a holiday punch, with wine and spritzed with ginger ale.
With or without the booze, every party needs your brightness and a place for people to gather and chat.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Hot chocolate
The holidays and the end of the year get you back where your heart is: home. But they can also be overwhelming. As a logical, sometimes cold creature, you need something to warm you up. A hot chocolate is a hug in a mug.
Plus, it can be a party drink by doing as Cardi B does and adding Baileys.
Leo (July 23 - August 22): Christmas margarita
You're the life of the party. You love to get the gossip flowing, even at a family event. Of course, you want to know what's happening with all your cousins, even the distant ones. That's why the drink you need, Leo, is a dramatic pink twist on the classic margarita: a Christmas Margarita.
It's exactly the kind of unexpected tang you crave.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Hot toddy
Details, decorations, delicate wrappings, and conversations: the holidays, and your desire to make them magical, can run you ragged. You need to put a shot of bourbon in a mug, then add a heaping tablespoon of honey to sweeten your mood, a decent amount of lemon juice, plus a lemon wheel with cloves shoved into the rind to get out your frustration.
Add some hot water and drink it slowly as your shoulders relax down.
Libra (September 23 - October 22): Pomegranate Gin Fizz
It's got a festive color that goes with the season, which suits you. But it's also tangy, fuzzy, sweet, and has gin. While some think gin is just for the summer, you know better, Libra. Besides, you need a little buzz to help you deal to the social chaos of the season.
The lack of balance at family events is always astounding, do your best to find the beauty or enjoy the sweet tartness of this drink.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): Eggnog
You can be hard to swallow, just like this cocktail, Scorpio. But when it's made right, and you're in a good mood, you're both silky smooth and the perfect person to have at a holiday party.
You've got the power to get everyone into the holiday spirit, and if you choose can use your charm to get everyone singing.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): Peppermint Martini
At the moment, something that keeps you fresh is what you need in a holiday drink. That's a peppermint martini, of course. It will make you smile with delight sip by sip, thus underscoring your natural adventurous spirit.
Plus, it's a fun go-to party drink that's just odd enough to get people wondering.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Carmel Mocha latte with an extra shot
Always on the move, you need a drink that will fortify. The frothed milk makes a mocha latte like a meal, but with extra caffeine. Capricorn, we'd try to convince you to go for something more party-friendly, but we know you're just too hard-headed.
And for some reason, you think you've got to do everything but sleep this season.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): White Russian
This cocktail, like you, is dangerously creamy. It can pull you in, transfix you and leave you thinking. The vodka and coffee liquor combination is as cool as the air element that moves you, Aries.
It's also one of those drinks that gives off that seductive mysterious vibe in its layered simplicity.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Coquito
This sweet coconut cream and rum-based Christmas treat is just as dreamy as you are, Pisces. Plus, it is certain to sooth any holiday family drama that's threatening to put you on edge.
Get your astrological drink on this holiday season with one of the concoctions above!
