Embrace the change of seasons and your star sign with these delicious fall beverages. Each recipe captures something special about your zodiac sign. See what you should be mixing up this autumn.
March 21 – April 19
Aries, we know you love to start new projects. This fall, try your hand at infusing your own liquor! This easy project takes just minutes to start and after infusing time, you’ll be rewarded with a bourbon that’s spicy, sweet and fiery (remind you of anyone?). Try it on the rocks or in a cocktail like an autumnal Manhattan or Old Fashioned.
April 20 – May 20
Taurus, you love your creature comforts. This cozy cocktail infuses so many of them together: quality chocolate, top-notch coffee, caramel and a bit of rum. This drink is luxe and comforting, which is absolutely what you’re about. Mix up a batch during a cozy Netflix sesh or finish off one of your signature dinner parties with this drink served up as a nightcap.
May 21 – June 20
Sparkling Gemini, this drink is for you Yes, it combines all the wonderful fall flavors everyone loves, like apple and cinnamon, but it’s topped off with what could be called Gemini’s signature drink: champagne! Sparkling wine echoes your bubbly, fun personality.
June 21 – July 22
Cancer, you love your traditions. We wouldn’t be surprised if lining up for the first PSL of the season at Starbucks is a ritual for you (find out if Starbucks really is the best place for a PSL here). You can make this cozy and comforting coffee drink right at home, though, with our Test Kitchen’s recipe. In fact, making your own pumpkin spice latte yourself is likely right up your alley as the kings and queens of comfort food and hominess.
July 23 – August 22
Leo, you know you’re the life of the party, which is why you should try a fun, celebratory drink this fall. This cranberry-infused cocktail puts a tart autumnal spin on the classic mimosa. Plus, it’s a refreshing change of pace, which is perfect for a fast-moving, trend-loving sign like you.
August 23 – September 22
Virgo, with your refined tastes and love of elegant simplicity, try a perfectly refined take on a classic cocktail. This candy apple drink puts a spin on a Virgo go-to: the martini. Just a kiss of apple and cranberry transforms this drink for autumn (and Virgo season which runs through most of September).
September 23 – October 22
Libra, your fun side is often underestimated, much the same way folks underestimate how tasty a simple amaretto sour can be. Show off your fun side and your love of balance—this drink has sour, tart and sweet—with this perfectly seasonal amaretto sour. A squeeze of lemon really brings this drink together. Garnish with a slice of apple or cinnamon stick and it’s truly a Libra-style drink (you love your aesthetics!).
October 23 – November 21
Scorpio you are quite the enigma. All at once you’re compelling and mysterious—much like a good glass of red wine. Channel that likeness into a seasonal drink like this mulled merlot. It’s dark, spicy and, thanks to brandy, has that little extra sting like you, Scorp.
November 22 – December 21
Saggitarius, we know you’re a bit of a busy bee—always out traveling or mingling with friends. Try a set-it-and-forget-it-style recipe like this slow cooker chai. You can let the flavors simmer all day long while you’re out and about, and when you come home, you can pour yourself a comforting cup of this spicy fall drink. And if you really love chai, try these recipes.
December 22 – January 19
Capricorn, you like things straightforward, much like a classic spiced cider. This recipe is especially good for Caps because, yes, it’s perfectly simple to make and sip, but it also includes an option for stirring in a dram of rum—perfect for when the weekend hits. Capricorn, we know you work hard, but when you’re off the clock, we know you like to leave it all behind and unwind.
January 20 – February 18
Aquarius, you like to do things a little differently. This fall, you wouldn’t settle for basics like a plain, hot cider or pumpkin latte. Instead, try this sparkling apple float. It’s a unique twist on traditional floats and it’s fun, effervescent and non-traditional, just like you. (It’s also super tasty!)
February 19 – March 20
Pisces, you’ve got a nurturing side to you and you love to give. A drink mix like this hot buttered cider recipe is the perfect thing for you to whip up in your kitchen and to dop off to all your friends. Remember to keep some for yourself, loving Pisces. This drink is definitely worth sampling and is just the thing to keep you warm as the temps drop.
