Aries (March 21 – April 19): Ginger ale and jalapeño mule

You enjoy a real kick in the teeth, the fire sign that you are. You are bold, evil and always ready to spice things up. Prepare a drink that reflects this: a spicy mule with spicy ginger ale, simple syrup, a squeeze of lemon and a pepper garnish. It’s your adventure and your passion for life in a glass.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Rum-Free Strawberry Daiquiri

Beautiful bulls need to sip the sweet nectar of the gods: strawberries. But just because you’re a lover of beauty and carefully prepared cuisine doesn’t mean you don’t have sour streaks. Plus, a refreshing drink always benefits from lime and simple syrup. Do everyone a favor and make a batch of rum-free strawberry daiquiri to share.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Sunrise Over Orange Juice

Embrace your playful nature and bring the juice. Add grenadine syrup to your chilled orange juice and watch the syrup add a layer to this drink that’s shiny like you. A sprig of rosemary for keepsake and garnish, and your drink is ready.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Earl Gray Tonic

Sometimes you can be as tough as your outer shell, Cancer. The best drink for you is both familiar and unique: a soothing drink of Earl Gray tea mixed with tonic water and ice – because bubbles don’t just feel good.

Leo (July 23 – August 22): Frozen Peach Bellini

Everyone knows you’re awesome. Embrace it and toss these frozen peaches that are as hard and sweet as you are with sparkling apple juice, lime and a dollop of sugar. Nothing says party like a cool mixed drink in a fancy glass.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Sparkling Lemonade

You like the color green, so why not adopt it? Squeeze the limes that life has in store for you and mix them with sugar and sparkling water. And we don’t have to tell you to save a slice to grace your drink, Virgos usually have everything covered to a T. But don’t forget to breathe while you’re making this drink – not everything has to be super complex.

Libra (September 23 – October 22): Grapefruit Paloma Mocktail

You can measure out every ounce of grapefruit juice you mix with lime, fizzy soda, and sweet syrup, but it doesn’t all have to be perfectly matched. Sometimes, Libra, the perfect drink is the one you don’t think too much about.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Piña colada

Let’s be honest, you love piña coladas and getting caught in the rain. You love anything sensual and sexy. Make your mocktail creamy, coconut and tropical without rum. Your drink will be as naughty as you are.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Lovely Lavender Lemonade

Bitterness is not in your vocabulary. You’re a pro at making tough things sweet, and lemonade is balm for your soul. It’s tart and fresh, just like you. Pull on something new and special by putting the purple hue of your star sign in the drink with the addition of lavender simple syrup.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): Chocolate Martini

Sometimes you’re too busy to take a break. But you deserve one, and you need one with chocolate. Use this mocktail craft to ponder your next steps for a bit. Consider decorating your martini glass with a swirl of chocolate sauce, then slowly add cooled chocolate milk. Shave on some After Eight or peppermint candies to top off your downtime pleasure.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Cucumber Lemonade

Cool as a cucumber and normally calm, you are an inspiration to many. As the last air sign of the zodiac, you bring freshness to any group activity. Now you can also bring an Agua Fresca de Pepino or a cucumber lemonade. This type of mocktail is usually prepackaged and doesn’t come in individual servings, so mix it up and share.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Mojito mocktail

Sometimes these emotions can be difficult to deal with. Imagine the mix of lime, sugar, and mint at the bottom of your cup are those overwhelming, pesky emotions. Mash ’em up, mash ’em up, and blend ’em into the perfect non-alcoholic mojito. Simply add sparkling water on top, then sit back, sip your drink and let your dreams take flight.
