Libra (Sept 24 - Oct 23)

Tequila combined with the delicate flavours of fruits creates a beautiful cocktail that brings out the tropical aromas for Librans smoothly.
30 ml Raspberry liqueur
30 ml Tequila
20 ml Cointreau
Qualities: Intuitive, intriguing and ambitious.
The cocktail: At first sight, Scorpions’ bold nature comes across, but they are also equally secretive and sensitive. This cocktail is full of prominent flavours (use of figs and strawberry benefits this sign) of berries along with a mix of ingredients that makes you wonder about the drink.
2 whole figs
1 bar spoon Grenadine syrup
10 ml lime juice
60 ml vodka
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 21)
Qualities: Classy, practical and reliable.
The cocktail: Those who belong to this sign are fiercely independent and systematic. They also have a great amount of patience and perseverance. For this cocktail, citrus fruits are combined with Ron Zacapa that has its own sweet honey flavour. When mixed with flavoured tea, the concoction opens up slowly. The ingredients are also healthy for a Capricorn.

60 ml orange juice
1 bar spoon honey
60 ml Ron Zacapa

Aquarius (Jan 22 - Feb 19)
Qualities: Experimental, extroverted and tolerant. Aquarians are simple people. They express themselves naturally and create a positive aura.
