Drinking Can Be Fun, But Drinking To Your 12 Astrological Signs Is Enlightening

Become one with your inner lush.


Your astrological sign is your everything, it literally dictates who you are as a person. Though whether you believe it or not is up to you, but what if it could also dictate your kind of alcoholic drink?

Get an Uber and text your friends because you're going drinking tonight.

1. Aries: Hot and Sassy.

An Aries is one to be full of life and possesses seriously high energy. This sign is always looking for a new challenge to take on, which is why this tangy and spicy drink is perfect for you. It packs a punch while making you want to dance the night away.

How to make: 1 oz. of Pucker Vodka Sour Apple Sass. Add 3 slices jalapeños and 2 slices clementine. 1 oz. of lime juice and 3 oz. of lemon-lime soda. Muddle jalapeño and clementines in a cocktail shaker. Add vodka and ice, then shake and strain into a tall glass. Enjoy.

2. Taurus: Between the sheets.

A Taurus is a daydreamer, they have a happy and vibrant inner life but more often than not are a bit on the shy side. One could even sare say they are the most sensual of the bunch. Which is why between the sheets is your drink, this cocktail is warm but surprisingly refreshing, it'll keep you dreaming of your fantastical getaway.

How to make: 1 oz Cognac 1 oz Triple sec1 oz Light Rum 1⁄4 oz Fresh lemon juice all into a cocktail shaker. Add ice and then shake. Strain into a chilled coupe. Enjoy.

3. Gemini: Red Wine.


Gemini's are known to have different personalities to different people, which gives them an aura of mystery. They crave intellectual stimulation. That's why a deep red wine is perfect for you, red wines always have a different taste to everyone who tries it. I'd recommend a good Pino Nior.

How to make: Go to the store and buy it bc nobody has time to deal with all that.

4. Cancer: Rum and Coke.

Cancer, the extremely emotional sign. They need to know that they matter to someone and that they are secure in that love, which tends make them either look like a hopeless romantic or just clingy. For you, the classic pairing of Rum and Coke will get the job done. It's sweet and smooth with a hint of tang, and just like your fleeting romance, once it's gone will leave you wanting more.

How to make: 2 oz of your favorite Rum, 6 oz of Coke poured into a short glass with a lime wedge on the rim. Enjoy.

5. Virgo: Buttery Nipple.

Virgo's are mild-mannered on the surface, but underneath it all there is a real flurry of activity. Which is why a buttery nipple is perfect for you. Underneath all of that heavy Irish cream is the even more delicious butterscotch.

How to make: 1 oz butterscotch schnapps, 1/2 oz Irish creme liqueur. In a tall shot glass pour schnapps, then with a spoon gently layer Irish creme.

6. Leo: Chocolate Chili Chin Gone.

Leo's are like lions, proud, regal, and in charge. They like to know they are in charge of the situation, aka fake it till you make it types. So try sipping on, Chocolate Chili Chin Gone, it's smokey, bitter and has a sweet after taste.

How to make: 2 oz of Patron, .25 oz Vida Mezcal, .25 oz Agave 2 tsp bitters all in mixing glass. Mix then strain into a coupe with ice. Grapefruit zest and garnish with chocolate bits.

7. Libra: Dark 'n' Stormy.

Libra is the definition of harmony and peace. When things are balanced, then there is harmony, so your drink would have to be more balanced to keep you smiling. This drink is well balanced in both being smooth and tangy.

How to make: 2 oz of Dark Rum, 1 can of ginger beer. Mixed in a tall glass with ice.

8. Scorpio: Moonshine.

Scorpio's are exactly what you'd think they'd be, fearless bad-asses. They embody a daredevil lifestyle and their drinks should match that. Which is why Moonshine is the way to go. This "outlawed" drink is not only dangerous to drink but makes you feel like you're taking a risk at every sip.

How to make: Best leave this one to the professionals. Though, I hear somewhere deep in NOLA you can find some.

9. Sagittarius: Whiskey.


Sagittarians crave adventure and freedom, both metaphorically and in reality. When you want a drink you crave something that gives you the feeling that you an overall sense of well-roundedness but still having a flair for the unknown. That's why Whiskey straight is your goto drink. Whiskey is a classic drink that has been enjoyed all over the world, hence giving you a more worldly and badass vibe.

How to make: 2 oz of whiskey (your preference) in a short glass. Ice optional.

10. Capricorn: Martini.

Capricorns are very much natural born leaders. They demand a rooms attention by just walking in, so why not have a drink to match that kind of captivating power. Your drink of choice, Martini. How dirty it is, that's up to you.

How to make: Tell the bartender you want a martini, three olives.

11. Aquarius: Aquarius.

Aquarian's are probably the friendliest people you will ever meet in your life. They are good at making friends everywhere they go and are just filled with charisma. That's probably why they have a drink made and named after them, the Aquarius.

How to make: 1 1/2 oz scotch, 1/2 oz cherry brandy, 1oz cranberry juice. Pour all into a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into old fashion glass. Garnish with cherry and lime for a kick.

12. Pisces: Dark Beer.

Pisces, someone who has their head in the clouds but when they come back down to earth have a very mysterious feel. Dark beer could be your thing, other than the drink being dark and mysterious to those who have never tried this kind of beer, the flavors might actually surprise you with a coffee-esk after taste.

How to make: Have you tried a Guniess? Try asking your bartender for an Irish car bomb. You'll be blown away.

With no sign of the pandemic going anywhere, brides and grooms who planned to be married in 2020 are forced to opt for plan B — if not plan C or D.

5 Characters From Your Childhood That Combated The Mental Health Stigma

We deserve to see people like us on the big screen just as much as you do.

Perks of Being a Wallflower

Growing up with a neurodevelopment disorder and mental illness, it's easy to feel isolated from the rest of the world. It is not common to look around and see someone that experiences situations similar to the ones you endure. Even if you do come across a person that is also perceived to be "different" in the eyes of society, the negative connotations instilled in everyday life are quick to silence your voice and knock you down before you have a chance to realize that who you are is more than okay--it's normal. This is a big reason why anything that brings understanding and shines a light on what people with neurodevelopment disorders and mental illness go through on a regular basis comes around a sense of relief and happiness fills the body.

Epic Activewear Deals Every Leggings-Lover Needs To Know About From Nordstrom's Biggest Sale

Wearing my pleather Alo leggings till someone physically removes them from my body.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not an athletic person, at all. Since junior high school, I've been happily cheering my friends on at their football games and soccer matches from the sidelines as long as I could go home to my yoga mat and spend Sunday mornings at Pilates with my mom's friends.

Weekends are often spent in my casual wear, from the second I throw them on for morning meditation through running errands and evening walks. No, I won't be running a marathon or joining my friend's volleyball league anytime soon.

Luxury Fashion Buys Your Bank Account Couldn’t Justify Till This Year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

In case you needed another reason to get the Prada sunnies you've been eyeing all year.

Since I can remember first flipping through my older cousin's fashion magazines as an 8-year-old, I've always had several luxury items on my wish list of items I knew I'd never have, but loved to fantasize about.

As I grew into financial independence later in life, the list grew longer, but the ways in which I could toy with my grocery or travel budget for a month to make room for something I really wanted made the items on it more attainable. Even then, I will (virtually) visit an item online several times in the span of a year to test if I still like it months after eyeing it, and to see if by any chance it may have gone on sale.

First and foremost, shame on you for encouraging the patriarchy and sexism as you police a female's clothing choices. You cannot control our bodies, but what you can advocate for is public health and safety. This includes demoralizing rape, slut-shaming, and protecting society from illness.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.
