If You're An Aquarius, This Cocktail Is A Must-Try

There are twelve zodiac signs and four elements. Each zodiac element really means who you are at your core; they divide us into four types of people. Naturally, each element — and each sign — has very different vibes when they're out at the bar. While Geminis are likely dancing on top of the bar, Leos are likely out on the dance floor, for example. But the Aquarius, who you likely forced out with you, is without a doubt ordering the most casually cool order at the bar. Aquarians are just plain cool like that. They have an air to them that makes even the hardest tasks easy. This includes ordering the perfect drink at the bar.

According to Astrology.com, Aquarius women are unusual in the best possible way. "An Aquarian personality does not conform to any societal standards," the website explains. "She prefers to live on the fringes, and is always thinking outside the box." So it only makes sense that they're ordering — or, let's be honest, mixing themselves — a drink that's traditional yet quirky at the same time. You know, just like them.

Whether you're looking to stock your home bar for your bestie or just get drink ideas for yourself, here are the two best go-to drinks for all the Aquarians out there.

The pink paloma is the perfect drink for an Aquarius

An Aquarius is not going to order just any drink at the bar. While your friends are opting for the typical vodka sodas and seltzers, the Aquarius is opting for something equal parts simple, cool, and noticeable. That, my friends, is the pink paloma.

"The Aquarius person tends to overthink a lot, so they need something that's easy-breezy, like a paloma or tequila soda," astrologer Alice Bell told Cosmpolitan. The pink paloma traditionally consists of tequila, fresh grapefruit juice, fresh lime juice, and a sprinkle of salt. It's refreshing, it's easy, and it's earthy, which all scream Aquarius. Of course, it also looks fashionable when holding it. So while it's not completely drawing attention, it's a good conversation starter.

While an Aquarius' style is always changing, they're always seen with a good bold accessory. "Many Aquarian women enjoy wearing bold, bright colors and accessorizing with unusual elements, like bright green shoes or a huge orange purse," explains Astrology.com. "Anything outlandish or unexpected will suit their tastes for the strange and bizarre – and they love wearing anything that they can turn into a conversation piece." At the bar, that means a fun drink in hand. 

Aquarians love putting their twist on classic drinks

When in doubt of what to serve your Aquarian friend, start with a basic drink and give it a twist. Aquarians aren't flashy, but they are quirky, which means that a twist on a traditional classic drink is perfect for them. The drink can't just be made from vodka, though. Think something flashier, like gin.

A citrus-infused gin is the perfect ingredient for an Aquarius' drink, per Fairmont Mayakoba. It's your typical gin and tonic with an upscaled twist. Add a unique garnish to the drink, and you have the perfect mix of classic and tradition for this zodiac sign (via Good Housekeeping). You don't even have to announce the subtle twist that you add to an Aquarius' drink, either. They will instantly notice, and they'll appreciate your thoughtfulness.

At the end of the day, a great drink is the way to anyone's heart. If you're looking to spice things up as an Aquarius (or for one), it's all about the subtle nods, which means you can also always put your twist on vintage cocktails for them if you want to win them over.
