Unique and dangerously drinkable cocktail recipes for every astrological sign, so the stars can guide your imbibing as much as they do the rest of your life
The movements of the heavens have the power to rule our lives—from who we date or how we express ourselves to when we make career moves or whether we make that big purchase. Why shouldn't we let them rule how we drink as well?
Featuring everything from chili-infused tequila for the adventurous Aquarius to an espresso-based cocktail for the unstoppable Virgo, these recipes will give you the tools you need to pay tribute to the sign of your choice, whether you love that sign, hate that sign, or are that sign. With names such as Sorry I Ghosted You, What's My Age Again?, and Pillow Talk, and featuring ingredients ranging from gummy bears and CBD drops to star anise and oat milk, these tempting cocktails have been expertly tailored to every sector of the zodiac, with four recipes dedicated to each sun sign plus more for various cosmic events. Witty, wise, and welcoming to cocktail makers of all levels, Margarita in Retrograde is a loving tribute and essential resource for every enlightened mixologist.
