Fall is in full swing, and before you know it, you’ll hear holiday songs on the radio. This month tends to fly by, but that doesn’t mean it won't be full of meaningful experiences and important moments. Scroll down to see what November holds and, maybe more importantly, what cocktail you should be holding as everything comes your way.

  • SCORPIO: Oct. 23–Nov. 21

    Things might seem a bit uncertain these days, but this is where your resourcefulness can really come in handy. Keep focusing on your goals and exercise your patience, and things will start to turn around. As the weather turns colder, try keeping it tropical with the Huli Pau. There’s no easier way to lift your spirits than a drink you could put a tiny umbrella in.

  • SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 22–Dec. 21

    Your generosity is set to pay off this month as an old friend delivers some great news. But don’t discount new connections; they can be incredibly valuable too, so make sure to use that killer personality and great sense of humor to your advantage. The playful, yet complex Spin Move will be by your side this month, helping you along the way.

  • CAPRICORN: Dec. 22–Jan. 19

    This month is all about love and friendship for you, Capricorn. As you long for deeper connections, find ways to enhance your sense of community in ways that might seem a little uncomfortable. You’ll be laying the groundwork for years of meaningful relationships to come. And what better drink than the Always Sunny to get you through the changing seasons.

  • AQUARIUS: Jan. 20–Feb. 18

    Travel is calling your name this month, and it may even benefit you more than just getting some mental headspace. Don’t underestimate the people you meet along the way, as they could be valuable to you in the future. The Hebridean Shores is the perfect complement to any trip—it’s light and fruity with a big backbone of scotch.

    It’s easy to want to go into hibernation mode with the cooler weather creeping in, but this is definitely not the time to Netflix and chill. A few relationships will need nurturing this month, especially at work. The Rich Coffee will keep you warm and a little buzzed in more than one way, which you’ll need for all of those obligations.

  • ARIES: March 21–April 19

    Zandy Mangold

    A conversation at the beginning of the month will offer a much-needed change of perspective. Take some time to wrap your mind around it before making an impulsive action. The Harvest Time, a warm apple cider tipple, will be by your side whenever you need it, making you wonder why you’ve never thought to put scotch in more fall cocktails.

  • TAURUS: April 20–May 20

    Tim Nusog

    You’ll be lucky in love this month, whether you’re currently attached or not. Lots of nights together call for an easy sipper like the Adonis, a simple mix of sherry and vermouth. You’ll wonder where this practical cocktail has been all of your life.

  • GEMINI: May 21–June 20

    Pay attention to valuable opportunities in your life this month and make sure to stay positive. The good things ahead may not seem obvious, but if you work hard, they’ll start to reveal themselves toward the end of the month. As the holiday season approaches, it’s time to perfect a cocktail that’s great as an easy nightcap or a celebratory sipper, like the Aristocrat.

    Embrace your inner homebody this month, and hunker down on those projects you’ve been putting off around the house. You’ll be amazed at how a simple purge can clear your mind and your closet. The Liberation Libation goes along with your theme of new beginnings, plus it’s basically fall in a glass.

  • LEO: July 23–Aug. 22

    The holidays will be a welcome rest this year and much needed after a tough couple of months. Let someone else do the planning or maybe even take a solo trip to enjoy some peace and quiet this year. A Margarita is craveable all year long, so here’s a twist to complement whatever plans you choose.

  • VIRGO: Aug. 23–Sept. 22

    Your inner control freak has been raging lately, and it’s time to take a step back. Let go of your concept of perfect, and accept that you do the best you can. The tasty Cold Comfort will quite literally be your comfort this month, especially when you need a bit of an escape.

  • LIBRA: Sept 23–Oct. 22
