Astrology and Cocktails: Celebrating Aries
Last night I tasted the best Springtime cocktail, made by this awesome bartender named Hans at Oswald’s in Santa Cruz. Being an Aries, I decided that this drink was made for me! This brought me to re-create the drink myself this morning – and share the recipe with all Aries alike. This got me thinking about horoscopes, and realized that every sign should have a signature cocktail. This month, we celebrate Aries….and give a few words of wisdom to everybody else.
Aries: (21 March- 19 April )
Your ram horns are in everyone else’s asses this month. But you don’t give a shit; it is your time to shine. Your headstrong ways will help you manipulate others in order to achieve your goals. Throw back a couple of these Feisty Aries to get you off to a good start.
4 oz. vodka
½ Meyer lemon
2 slices of cucumber
A couple dashes of Cayenne pepper
Ice to chill
Instructions: Muddle strawberries and cucumber in a shaker. Add other ingredients and shake well. Strain into a chilled Martini glass. Garnish with a slice of cucumber.
Taurus (20 April – 20 May)
Stop fighting with the waiter and accept the fact that you just ordered the wrong thing. Your stubbornness keeps you dissatisfied with your choices this month. Smiling actually works wonders. Try it and see…
Gemini (21 May – 20 June)
Did you scare away that cute guy you saw at the grocery store because you were talking to yourself again? Remember to take your meds to avoid your schizophrenic nature. Start doing Yoga this month to find some balance in your life.
Cancer ( 21 June – 22 July)
It already April, meaning it’s time to start following up on your New Year’s resolution – it’s time to put your foot down. You are tired of being treated like a doormat. Think about yourself for once, and stop tying to have a remedy for everyone else’s tragedy.
Leo (23 July – 22 August)
Get over yourself. Your vanity is not helping your relationship this month. Let someone else be the center of attention, and you might actually see that other people have some interesting things to say.
Virgo (23 August – 22 September)
Let loose this month. De-colorize your wardrobe. Try to go a week without washing your car. Stop studying the TV guide and just watch whatever is on. You might realize you can’t control the world.
Libra (23 September – 22 October)
Stop being so bipolar and make a decision for once. You can do it! Your friends will be amazed at your initiative to try that new restaurant you’ve heard so much about. Just hope they don’t have too big of a menu!
Scorpio (23 October – 21 November)
Try to stop pushing your conspiracy theories on others this month. Get off the computer and go get some fresh air. You still have 18 months until the world is going to end anyways…
Sagittarius (22 November – 21 December)
Your thrill for adventure will result in an unusual vacation this month. Leave your GPS at home, and just see where you end up. You will be pleasantly surprised.
Capricorn (22 December – 19 January)
Your hard work and dedication will pay off in the workplace this month. Expect a raise or a pat on the back from your boss.
Aquarius (20 January – 18 February)
Your free spirit will land you at an awesome party this month. You may meet the love of your life there. You never know…
Pisces (19 February – 20 March)
Be extra careful this month, as you are extremely accident-prone. Buy a bike helmet, wear your seat belt and look both ways before crossing the street.
