May brings with it flowers and sunshine and a return to al fresco drinking, which means it’s time to think about what you should be sipping on as the mercury rises. Luckily, the zodiac has a lot to say about your perfect cocktail. Here’s the drink you should mix up in May, according to your horoscope.
You’re just coming out of your birthday month, a time when “Treat Yo Self” knows no bounds. And that’s all good, but it’s time to get your budget back in order after a month of frivolous spending. Pour yourself a simple Cuba Libre, a cocktail that doesn’t require any expensive ingredients or mixers.
Someone as intellectual as you needs a partner who provides mental stimulation, so don’t be surprised if an attraction to a good friend swells this next month. Don’t fight it if the feeling is mutual. Toast a spring fling with a drink that is light and airy, yet sophisticated and balanced, like the spritzy Veronica Rose.
As your birthday season approaches, your partnerships mean more than ever. Some important information relating to a personal or professional relationship could be revealed very soon—don’t worry, it’s positive. Toast to a rosier “new year, new me” mentality with a Watermelon Rose Sangria.
This month brings some social issues to the front of your awareness, and there’s no time like the present to spring into action. Sometimes, doing good for the environment is as simple as using your food scraps instead of throwing them in the garbage. This insanely tasty Trash Tini uses charred onion-infused vermouth that is bound to impress—both with its flavor and your do-goodery.
Work has been going very well for you, and you set your goals high for the next year. But simple recognition isn’t enough because you want to shine brighter than everyone, just like the star you are. This Star Spangled Sangria is sweet and easy to make, but it looks like a million bucks and is worthy of any bash you throw this season.
Community support matters more than ever as you look to the important projects coming up in the second half of the year. It’s time to make nice on a personal level with those who share your vision. Gather around a bowl of Fish House Punch to get the conversation started.
You’re a natural-born mediator who’s always helping friends deal with conflicts. But sometimes you need to step back, let things play out naturally and worry about yourself. Sip your Peaches and Tea Punch while proclaiming that this time, it’s none of your business.
Scorpios are known for their mysterious air (Irish exit much?), but a big change is coming that will make social connections a central theme of your life. Maybe you’re making deeper connections with friends, taking the next step in your relationship or launching a business venture with a partner. Whatever the case, embrace the togetherness with a Delorean Door Fishbowl.
You’re always on a hunt for the next adventure and can’t sit still for long. But being grounded doesn’t have to be boring. The Rob Roy may be a classic cocktail, but its smoky depth will remind you that sometimes innovation can be found in the past—you don’t always need to reinvent the wheel.
This month is all about romance for you, dear Capricorn, whether you’re starting a new fling or deepening your commitment to a long-term partner. Whatever the case, you need something sweet and cooling to celebrate your passion. The Take Me Down to Kokomo is like a spiked strawberry-banana smoothie that makes for a fruity, boozy way to start the day.
Everyone’s idea of home is different—it could be a place, but it could also be a person or a state of mind. As you search for your own definition, remember to look back on your past and harness the best energy from those times. The Cheerwine-based Look Homeward, Angel is nostalgic but innovative, and stikes a perfect balance of old and new.
It’s going to be a peachy summer for you Pisces. But right now, you’re uber focused on your domestic life, whether you’re moving, making significant home repairs or simply contemplating a big furniture purchase. Something spicy but refreshing, like the Paloma Caliente, will kick things into high gear so you can finish working and start enjoying.
