There’s plenty of summer left in September. This month, no matter what your sign, the stars are aligning to give you just the boost you need to finish off those summer bucket lists. Here’s how the stars say drinkers of every astrological sign should spend their September.
Fall is an exciting time for restaurant and bar openings. While September is still a little early for the openings season, there are still plenty of fresh, flashy drinks to show off on your Insta. Try a jiggly Jello Cup, a punch bowl full of lightning, or experience a 4-D cocktail with virtual reality. And don’t forget to snap a pic—of course you’re not going to forget, who are we talking to?
Just as Virgo needs to spend the month trying new things, Taurus will have a great time exploring the things they already love. A whiskey-drinking Taurus, for example, should complete their extensive collection of whiskies with a few new bottles or check out one of the best whiskey bars in the country.
In the final days of summer, many warm-weather, boozy activities may compete for your attention. On-the-move Geminis should pack up the car for a roadtrip, cramming in as many drinking activities across the States as possible (staying the night at booze-friendly Airbnbs or assigning a DD as necessary). Cap off your trip with an epic pool party, then get right back in the saddle for autumnal activities.
Who cares about spring cleaning? It’s all about late summer cleaning for you, Cancer. Take the time before fall drives you indoors to clean up the bar area of your apartment-sized shell and get everything ready for quality indoor time come cooler weather. Upgrade (or finally invest in) your bar cart, and stock it with an array of boozy staples and bar necessities. Or maybe take on that DIY home bar project
you’ve been meaning to get to all summer.
The solar eclipse last month left a lot of stargazers pretty spent, but none more than Leos who were born near the event. While feisty Leo never wants to slow down or let the party stop, September may be the perfect time to put that energy into a more secluded, rejuvenating activity. Take advantage of the turning weather by organizing a camping trip with a few friends, and burn off some of those late summer jitters hiking with a backpack full o’ booze.
Summer is a time for experimentation, and that includes you, shy Virgo. It’s time to get out there and cross a few of those dreamy drinking experiences off your bucket list. Check out our list of cocktail bars to visit before you die, learn how to make all those drinks you really should already know how to make, or check off every entry on this ultimate boozy bucket list.
Summer may be drawing to a close, but you have plenty of time left to take advantage of sunny days and outdoor drinking. Head to the nearest scenic drinking locale as the sun enters your sign on the September 22, or whip up your al fresco favorite in a flask and kick back in a hammock strung up on a pristine, booze-friendly beach.
Resourceful and committed, you’re exactly the type of organizing force your friends need for one last big summer bash. Wrangle your compatriots for an epic bar crawl or book a drinker-friendly Airbnb somewhere out of town. Alternatively, if your indomitable spirit outlasts all your friends, make it your solo mission to uncover every last secret speakeasy entrance in town.
Every sign can enjoy a good summer adventure, but only the intrepid Sagittarius will have the chutzpah to take on an extreme boozy adventure. Head to an over-the-top watering hole at the edge of the world or strap on your spurs for a tequila-fueled horse ride in Mexico. Or, if you’re saving your vacay days for the holidays, satisfy your wanderlust with these escapist Instagram accounts.
After the blowout midday bashes of high summer, September is the time for calmer day drinking, when careful Capricorns can party appropriately by sipping a low-ABV cocktail in the waning sunlight. But don’t feel shackled by your role as the responsible drinker among your friends. Whip up a batch of spiked milkshakes as a nice surprise for all your pals or for a treat-yo-self kind of Sunday.
An Aquarius may be able to knock down cocktail party convos with ease thanks to their worldly expertise and comprehensive drinking knowledge, but all that trivia fodder has to come from somewhere. This month, study up on your liquor brand mascots before attending a “Dress as Your Drink” themed house party, and be sure to gather some movie-specific drinking factoids before your next late summer movie date.
Return to the sea, Pisces. Skip the overcrowded booze cruise where you’ll feel overwhelmed by rowdy sailors, and instead rent yourself a boat with a killer bar and sail your way down the nearest coast until you’re well lost. Turn off your phone and just float.
