The newness of 2019 has officially worn off, and dry January (or attempted dry January) is finally over. Just because it’s the dead of winter doesn’t mean February can’t be an important month for you. Scroll down to find out how the stars will guide your month—and your cocktailing.
Hunkering down and embracing the slower pace of winter is what this February is all about for you, especially as you get closer to your birthday. Enjoy some quiet time, reflect on the past year, and settle in with a good cocktail. The Diamond District is the perfect accompaniment as it’s a simple three-ingredient drink with the flavor profile of something much more complex.
Your outgoing personality is what it’s all about this month, as your enthusiasm and passionate attitude brings new exciting opportunities into your life. Keep your dreams in mind and don’t be afraid to make a leap. Introducing a new cocktail ingredient into your life via the Golden Geisha will keep things exciting and celebratory.
You’ve been dabbling in making healthy lifestyle changes. Take the lessons you’ve learned and embrace low-ABV and nonalcohol cocktails like the Salty Ginger-Ade. It’s so good you’ll forget there isn’t alcohol in it. And if you do want a little kick, just add a neutral spirit.
You’re feeling lots of good energy at the start of the month, especially as you discuss your future with friends and family. The Ruby cocktail tastes just like the sunny outlook you have on life right now. Plus, it’s a perfect cocktail to make for your Valentine.
Confrontation is never fun, but you’ll encounter some necessary conflict this month. It’ll be uncomfortable, but it’ll strengthen relationships that matter. When things aren’t feeling particularly positive, find some solace in a tropical cocktail with ingredients that don’t require a special liquor store run.
Your friends are intensely important to you, but sometimes they don’t have your best interests in mind. This month, focus on your finances. Sometimes spending money on another beer with a friend isn't how you should be spending your paycheck. Instead, have friends over for the budget-friendly Cranberry-Ginger Mimosas. They’re especially perfect for a Valentine’s or Galentine's celebration.
Your tendency to be overly critical tries to take over this February as life slows down a bit. Remember to keep your cool and go with the flow—don’t make things complicated where they don’t need to be. That means keeping your drinking this month simple too. Opt for a Reverse Manhattan.
You’ve been great at prioritizing so far this year, and things are continuing to look up this month. Harness that positive energy and carry it into everything you do. This fun drink is the mashup of two favorite cocktails and is the perfect compliment to your success.
Things aren’t exactly going your way, but dwelling on the past isn’t going to get you out of this rough patch. Embrace the new month and set forth to take some risks and try something new. The Conquistador is an apt companion this month.
The best of you will shine through this February, and you’re set to have a lot of fun in your relationships. This warm and spicy cocktail is perfect to make all month long, as it’s a cozy winter drink designed for two.
As the new month begins, you’re feeling as driven as you did at the beginning of January. Don’t fall into your normal patterns of discipline and instead embrace a more creative approach to new projects and tasks. When you need to relax, turn to the Mata Hari. It’s a totally creative approach to a cognac cocktail that you’ll love. Get the recipe for the Mata Hari.
Not normally a big fan of Valentine’s Day, you’re embracing the theme of love this year and putting that energy into deepening social connections. Whoever you’re celebrating with this year, mix up a batch of the Rose-Colored Glass to celebrate.
