In the last part of our series on sun-sign based drinks, here are recipes Pisceans, Scorpions, Capricorns, Aquarians, Sagittarians, Librans can try.

Libra (Sept 24 - Oct 23)
Qualities: Idealistic, thoughtful and charismatic.
The cocktail: Librans are shy and quiet, beautiful at heart and stable in their thoughts. They are in perfect harmony.
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

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 22)

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

Strawberry preserve

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.


1 bar spoon apple

cinnamon tea

60 ml orange juice

1 bar spoon honey

60 ml Ron Zacapa

Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)
Qualities: Cheerful, optimistic and extroverted.
The cocktail: Sagittarians are warm, straight-forward and intense people. They are full of energy and express themselves freely. Jasmine and Parfait Amour add a certain intense, yet expressive character to the cocktail.

40 ml vodka
20 ml Parfait Amour
20 ml Jasmine syrup

Aquarius (Jan 22 - Feb 19)
Qualities: Experimental, extroverted and tolerant. Aquarians are simple people. They express themselves naturally and create a positive aura.
The cocktail: This cocktail has natural a pear flavour that benefits an Aquarian's health also. It is easy and smooth to drink and the flavours are clear, like the thoughts of an Aquarian.

20 ml Blue curaçao
30 ml Vodka
5 ml Sambuca
Squeeze of fresh lime

Pisces (Feb 20 - Mar 20)
Qualities: Pisceans are compassionate, mystical and magnetic.

30 ml Ron Zacapa dark rum
20 ml Blue curaçao
10 ml lychee syrup
