Ballantine’s Cocktails 

Drinks for your Zodiac Sign

ballantines whisky guide whisky drinks

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 whisky cocktail recommendation based upon those very qualities that were written for you in the stars.

Aquarius: 30 Year Old on The Rocks

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.

Pisces: Berry Beer

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 this Berry Beer… might not sound like your vibe at first, but trust us, you’ll like it.

Aries: Cold Brew Kick

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, with its strong coffee flavour to perfectly complement the sweet taste of Ballantine’s whisky.

Taurus: Ballantine’s & Soda

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 Ballantine’s & Soda, and just like our Taurus pals, it’ll never let you down!

Gemini: Whisky Sour

Ever-youthful and full of an adventurous spirit are Geminis (May 21 – June 20), it’s simply got to be the classic Whisky Sour for such adaptable intellectuals.

Cancer: Whisky Iced Tea

We recommend a Whisky Iced Sweet Tea for the sensitive Cancer souls (June 21- July 22). That whisky kick will satisfy your tenacious tendencies too!

Leo: Ballantine’s Apple Pop

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!

Virgo: Old Fashioned

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

 Libra: Bobby Burns

You old romantics! Libras (September 23 – October 22 ) love things to be in balance, so we suggest mixing up not one, but two Bobby Burns cocktails. One for you, and one for the person you love.

Scorpio: Spritz My Way

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! 

Sagittarius: Lychee Sour

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.

Capricorn: Sessions Soda

We know you Capricorns (December 22 – January 19) like to work hard, but when the time comes to playing hard we recommend the Sessions Soda – never showy, but always excellent.
