The Best Cocktail for Your Astrological Sign
Find your perfect autumn cocktail with help from the stars
Sometimes, you have no choice but to blame it on the stars. Spilled your coffee? Mercury’s in retrograde. Date didn’t work out? Your signs just weren’t compatible.
A quick fix for “one of those days”? A cocktail that was made for you from Lettuce Entertain You. Read on to find which adult beverage aligns with your star sign:
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
il Porcellino: Persimmon Negroni
Aries, we’re always inspired by your adventurous spirit. You’re the one who’s got the hot takes on new locales and the tea on the latest trends. The latest Negroni on the block at il Porcellino is calling your name. The Persimmon Negroni, based on Italy’s famous fall fruit, has Beefeater Gin, Campari, Salers, Cocchi Vermouth di Torino, Apologue Persimmon Liqueur and Sel Gris.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
RPM Steak: Fall Old Fashioned
Okay, let’s be real – you’ve got expensive taste. There’s no better spot for you to quench your thirst after work than RPM Steak. You don’t need a lot of bells and whistles either – just a good drink. Unwind with RPM’s latest Fall Old Fashioned with Sazerac Rye, Orchard Demerara, and Cinnamon Bitters.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Pizzeria Portofino: In Pursuit of Passion
You’re the consummate collector of cool, so the drink that suits your vibe is the In Pursuit of Passion at Pizzeria Portofino (say that ten times fast). With Kendall Jenner’s 818 Blanco Tequila plus Passionfruit, Orgeat, and Mezzodi, this drink is bound to get the conversation flowing. Not that you needed any help with that.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Quality Crab & Oyster Bah: Pelican Club
Cancers are highly sensitive to their environment, and Quality Crab is the perfect spot to chill with an after-work drink in Lincoln Park. Take the edge off of your busy day with the Pelican Club and soak in some seaworthy vibes. Gin, Apple Brandy, Pear Liquor, Lemon, Angostura Bitters and a Spritz of Laphroaig make this cocktail a mini-getaway.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Three Dots and A Dash: Space Force Pilot
J.Lo, Mick Jagger, Kylie Jenner – if you’re a Leo, you’re definitely not the shyest sign on the block. The drink that suits your vibe is the new Space Force Pilot at Three Dots and a Dash. With Single Village Espadin Mezcal, Bonded Apple Brandy, Cinnamon, Lime, Grapefruit, Absinthe, and Angostura Bitters, this drink is a *tad* extra, but we’ll stick to the Leo motto: more is more, less is a bore.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Osteria Via Stato: Sicilian Old Fashioned
A new twist on a classic is always a good move for a pragmatic Virgo. You’d rather avoid the drink that comes out to the table with edible glitter or an impractical smokeshow. Order the Sicilian Old Fashioned at Osteria Via Stato. Your natural attention to detail will love the hints of Cherry Bark and Vanilla along with Bourbon and Zucca Amaro.
LIBRA (September 22 – October 23)
Lil’ Ba-Ba-Reeba!: Blood Orange Sangria
You’re a people person, and what better spot to socialize than Lil’ Ba-Ba-Reeba!? Gather up the crew, and we’ll make your drink decision easy: order the Blood Orange Sangria for the table. Blood orange, Bonanto, Campari & Cava are perfectly balanced, which matches your drive to create equilibrium in every area of your life.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Summer House Santa Monica – Lincoln Park: This Sh*t Is Bananas
You’re the mystery of the zodiac, Scorpio. We’re never sure what you’re going to order, but we do know it’s going to make a statement. Order This Sh*t is Bananas from Summer House Santa Monica. With a powerful combination of Redemption High Rye, Banane du Bresil, Guava, Charred Cinnamon, and Tiki Bitters, this drink – like you – will always leave a lasting impression.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
Big Bowl: Cranberry Orange Sangria
The sign that makes friends everywhere they go? The fun-loving Sag. Take your girls (or your guys) out to Big Bowl and order the Cranberry Orange Sangria for the table. It’s a breezy white wine infused with Cranberries and Oranges.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Eiffel Tower Restaurant: Eiffel Affair
Capricorns are the most ambitious sign of the bunch, and also one of the most romantic. We set a pretty high standard at Eiffel Tower Restaurant, which is why it’s the perfect go-to for the goal-oriented Capricorn. Look out on the best view of Las Vegas and sip on the Eiffel Affair. The Eiffel mixologists start off this drink with Fresh Berries in a combination of Blueberry Vodka, Crème de Cassis, Cointreau and Rose Nectar. When it has macerated for at least 24 hours, they top it off with champagne right before serving.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
Ramen-san: Snow Blossom
They say every Aquarian is a non-conformist, and that might have to do with your forward-thinking nature. Quite frankly, you’re over the pumpkin spice craze, and have been since 2013. You’d love the Snow Blossom at Ramen-san. With Snow Maiden Sake, Aperol, & Yuzu Sake, it’s not the most conventional fall cocktail, but it’ll warm up your spirits and maybe even inspire your next globe-trotting adventure.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
Beatrix: Ciderhouse Old Fashioned
Astrologers always mention the emotional characteristics of a Pisces – but your empathetic nature also means you tend to be the sounding board for all of your friends’ troubles, too. Next time you or your besties need to vent, go for the drink that feels like a warm hug. Ponder the mysteries of life over a Ciderhouse Old Fashioned at Beatrix: a twist on an Old Fashioned with Old Forester Bourbon, cardamaro, apple, pear, maple, and spices.
