What Kind of Drinker Are You, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
Your horoscope can tell you about who you’re going to marry, what will happen 20 years from now, and how you’re going to die, but we’re more interested in what the stars have to say about something a little more important: our drinking identity.
Libra: The Picture Snapper
Fun-loving Libras are great drinking companions, not only because they’re easy-going and have good senses of humor, but also because they get along with everyone. They thrive on social interactions, so you’ll see Libras snapping a million photos, sharing and capturing the night—which makes for great next-day brunch conversations.
Gemini: The Person Who Never Finishes a Drink
Geminis love variety—especially when they’re drinking. Halfway through a cocktail or beer, these air signs will get bored and crave something completely different. If you see a table full of watered-down drinks, you can bet a group of Geminis was there.
Aquarius: The Constant Wanderer
The restless Aquarius will take you to some of the best parties you’ve been to in your life, but don’t count on this wanderer to stick by your side the whole night. Aquarians need to be constantly on the move and get bored quickly, so try to keep up as they flit around like the social butterflies they are.
Leo: The Shot Fanatic
Leos love to bop around the bar, chatting with strangers and friends alike. They’re super affectionate and need lots of attention, which is why they turn to shots. Every time they (loudly) order a round of shots for the group, people turn to watch. They might talk your ear off but you’ll be richly rewarded with a bracing shot of tequila (on them), which makes it all worth it in the end.
Aries: The Ringleader
Aries are always the ones making plans and getting groups of friends together for a fun night on the town. They’re always up on the hottest hot spots and wouldn’t be caught dead in a “tired” place. If you’re looking for a good time and want to feel like royalty for the night, call your closest Aries bud.
Sagittarius: The Last Dog Out
The risk-taking Sagittarius doesn’t worry about last call, even when a workday is looming in the not-too-far distance. This fire sign is always the last one to leave a party for fear of letting the good times roll without them. Give a Sagittarius a place to crash after a big party—it’s easier than getting them out of your house.
Cancer: The Wallflower
It takes time for a Cancer to open up, but that doesn’t mean they don’t enjoy a good party. Sometimes they just like observing the action from a distance, quietly sipping on a stiff drink before diving in. It gives the goal-focused Cancer time to process and (over) analyze the situation.
Scorpio: The Perpetual Irish-Exiter
Scorpios are social beings who love to be loud and boisterous, and they appreciate settings that reflect their electric energy. But gregarious personalities aside, these mysterious water creatures don’t like to reveal their next move. The Irish exit is their favorite trick.
Pisces: The Pre-Gamer Who Never Leaves the House
Pisces are the effortlessly cool types that don’t need to attend a raging party to have a good time. In fact, they prefer having friends over for a pregame so they can serve bomb drinks and DJ like a champ. Don’t expect them to go out though—Pisces are still reserved at heart.
Virgo: The Resident Bartender
Hardworking Virgos make excellent bartenders because they’re quick thinkers and don’t take B.S. from anyone. They also know most classic cocktails like the back of their hand (no newfangled creations for these creatures of habit), so you’ll always find them whipping up a libation for a friend—even if it’s in someone else’s home. If you’re looking for someone to help with mixing duty at your next bash, a Virgo is more than willing to jump in.
Taurus: The Fight Picker
We’re not saying that the reliable Taurus is always trying to brawl, but they will stand up for you if there’s an altercation. This earth sign loves to be right, so if you don’t feel like getting in an argument over the best rye for a Manhattan, just nod and listen when they’re trying to make a point. These loyal creatures have a competitive edge, so they make great drinking game partners, too.
Capricorn: The Person Who Finishes Everyone’s Drinks
When it comes to cocktails, the Capricorn is easy to please. Whether you’re in a dive bar or a fancy cocktail den, this earth sign is happy, as long as they have a drink in hand. If you ordered a beverage that you hate, you can count on a Capricorn to finish it with zeal.
