If you’re looking for a true cocktail adventure, grab a Gemini before you embark on a night out. This air sign can’t sit still for long, which means you’re in for a fun if frenetic drinking experience every time you have them in tow. Here are five reasons why Geminis make the best drinking buddies.
They Believe Drinking is All About Having a Good Time
Some people delve into deep life chats or get overly emotional when they drink. But not the Gemini, who’s outlook on life is (almost) always on the bright side. The Gemini drinks to have a good time and never lets life’s stresses get in the way of decompressing and relaxing. If you want to go out for some cocktails and simply kick it without worrying about an angry drunk or emotional breakdown (hey, we all need carefree boozing sometimes), the Gemini is your best possible partner in crime.
They Know How to Improvise
Maybe you show up to the bar and it’s too crowded to accommodate your crew. Not to worry, the Gemini has a backup plan, and it’s likely better than the original, anyway. Geminis are master improvisers. If the liquor store runs out of their favorite bottle, they know which shelf to hit next. If they forgot to buy a specific cocktail ingredient, their ad-libbed concoction will become a new favorite. Even if things don’t go according to plan, you can always count on the Gemini to turn it around.
They Love to Bar Hop
Geminis are restless. They can’t stand in the same corner of a party for more than a few minutes, and you certainly won’t find them cozied up in the same bar all night. This means that Geminis are bar crawl masters. If you’re craving a Piña Colada tour or want to embark on a mission to taste the best Negronis in the city, the Gemini will happily map it out.
They Know Variety is the Spice of Life
Just as the Gemini can’t be in one place for too long, their palate needs variety, too. Geminis have trouble finishing their drinks because as soon as they’re halfway done with the glass, they’re thinking about what else is out there. If you go to a Gemini’s house for a party, you better believe that they’ll have a bar setup with all the liquors, liqueurs and mixers you could imagine. They’re always willing to experiment with new flavors and aren’t afraid to make a cocktail mistake—which results in some of the best and most interesting libations.
They’re Always Up for an Adventure
A Gemini loves an adventure and will be a better drinking companion with each exciting curveball you throw their way. They’re not afraid to check out new places off the beaten path and don’t mind traveling far for a really good cocktail. You can take them wine tasting and dancing in the same night, and it won’t cramp their style.
