Mixology meets astrology: Cocktails for your Zodiac Sign
Are you in tune with your zodiac sign and all the traits, tastes, and tipples it’s associated with? Or are you just looking for some cocktail recipe inspiration loosely linked with when you were born but you’re not really fussed about astrology?
Either way, we’ve got the ultimate cocktail recommendations based upon those very qualities that were written for you in the stars.
Here are the zodiac signs, as Ballantine’s drinks.
If you’re an Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) you like things to be honest and straight to the point with no time for messing about. That’s why we’ve kept it on the rocks – or lose the ice and serve it neat if that’s your style.
Our Pisces friends (February 19 – March 20) are deep and compassionate folks who like to keep their cards close to their chest. So don’t be fooled by any negative first impressions, you can always trust a Pisces. A bit like Berry Beer… might not sound like your vibe at first, but trust us, you’ll like it.
Those high energy Aries (March 21 – April 19) need a cocktail that can keep up. That’s why your cocktail of choice HAS to be the Cold Brew Kick. Our cold brew cocktail has a strong coffee flavour to perfectly complement the sweet taste of Ballantine’s whisky.
You can always depend on a Taurus (April 20 – May 20) to be resilient and sometimes stubborn. You always know what you’re getting with a Scotch & Soda, and just like our Taurus pals, it’ll never let you down!
Fun, bubbly, and up for a good time? We know you Leo’s always are! (July 23 – August 22). The stars have aligned and chosen a fresh and fruity serve for you – say hey to the Ballantine’s Apple Pop, our apple juice cocktail with all the fizz.
You Virgos (August 23 – September 22) are no-nonsense, no messing and will never be taken for a fool, but you can also be pretty hard on yourself. It’s time to unwind from that pent up angst with an Old Fashioned.
Headstrong, powerful, independent and some might even say ruthless. Scorpios (October 23 – November 21) are tenacious and passionate and will always do things their way. So OF COURSE it had to be Spritz My Way, our Prosecco whisky cocktail.
Sagittarius folks (November 22 – December 21) are always dreaming big, they enjoy the playful side of life and are never malicious. A sip on the sweeter side will suit your tastebuds perfectly, so we suggest trying this fresh Ballantine’s Lychee Sour.
Once you’ve chosen your whisky you need to decide how to drink it. Neat or mixer? Ice or cocktail? There’s a ton of options but no matter how you serve whisky, there’s always a scotch glass for the job. You don’t need to follow these points to the letter – good whisky doesn’t need rules – but it’s always useful to know the ropes when it comes to the different types of whisky glasses.
You already know we’ve nailed the Finest Whisky to ever grace a glass. But that’s just a little drop of what we’re about. Scroll on for the latest news and features from across the world of Ballantine’s whisky, True Music and much, much more.
