One of the most fun parts of the wedding planning journey is coming up with a signature cocktail that both you and your partner love. It should complement both of your tastes and also fit the overall wedding theme— which can turn a little challenging. Look no further than your horoscope! Having done Pittsburgh wedding photography for years, I’ve seen my fair share of brides pick their signature cocktail based on their Zodiac , so I’ve decided to gather my favorite drinks for each sign!
Aries: March 21 to April 19
Being a spring baby yourself, you’ll love a spring inspired drink. My recommendation is a delicious Rose Lemon Spritzer. Picture fresh fruit and beautiful garnishes!
Taurus: April 20 to May 20
Sweet and pleasure, two things a Taurus knows well! For your drink, I recommend a Watermelon-Tequila Cocktail. A great use for watermelon when it’s in abundance and you can mix blueberries and mint to add to the fresh taste!
Gemini: May 21 to June 20
Since you’re full of surprises, who better to throw all of your guests off by serving them not a fruity drink, but a savory one! My recommendation for your Pittsburgh wedding is a Bloody Mary, maybe topped off with some crisp bacon or gooey cheese.
Cancer: June 21 to July 22
Cancer brides tend to be really loving, sensitive and loyal, so for them I always suggest the Mandarinita El Corazon. A great combination of Tequila Reposado, lime and Mandarin Napoleon, a very soulful drink!
Leo: July 23 to August 22
For all my Leo brides, an over-the-top drink is a must.
Cucumber Lime Tops is a crazy but oh so delicious cocktails I once tried and since always recommend. Freezing a cucumber, lime mixture and serving it on a hot day is always a crowdpleaser.
Virgo: August 23 to September 22
Manhattan — the classic.
You love quality drinks and your Virgo nature makes you a purist. That’s why I recommend a good classic Manhattan. Have a simple drink with your choice of top notch whiskey!
Libra: September 23 to October 22
Being the social butterfly that you are, you love being surrounded by the people you love. What better cocktail than a Pearbellini? This is a pear-infused vodka, with elder flower liqueur, ginger syrup and the best champagne to find that perfect harmony.
Scorpio: October 23 to November 21:
Have that passion of yours come out and enjoy an Jack Rose on your Pittsburgh reception. A bright red drink that defines sensuality and tastes amazing!
Sagittarius: November 22 to December 21
Your positive outlook on life and that adventurous nature of yours match perfectly with a Thai-Basil Sangria. A twist on the common Spanish drink, this version gets it’s golden and transparent kick from white wine and brandy.
Capricorn: December 22 to January 19
For all of my Capricorn brides out there, I’ll always suggest a Martini. It’s a classic and straightforward drink, like you, Capricorn.
Aquarius: January 20 to February 18
Have a silly and whimsical Pittsburgh wedding serving some spiked Harry Potter-inspired butterbeer. They’ll be rich and really delicious.
Pisces: February 19 to March 20:
Pisces, give into your water-sign and natural ways and go for Mai Tai. It’s free-spirited and creative, and your guest will love it!
