Mercury is in retrograde. Combined with last weeks full moon. If things went haywire for you, that might just be why. So for Monday Funday, and with the help of PATRON Tequila, I’ve got a list of cocktails for your astrological sign. Perhaps if you are feeling the crazy at the end of the day try making the one paired your sign, to relax and reset.
What is mercury in retrograde
It is chaos. It runs through January 18th. Mercury refers to the planet that astrologists say is the ruler of communications. The Latin root of retrograde translates to backward step. Have a lot of your communications been getting mixed up lately? According to Susan Miller with Astrology Zone, when Mercury is retrograde you shouldn’t sign contracts or make big purchases of electronics either. She says you might not get what you thought you were.
Cocktails for the Capricorn astrological sign
We are currently in the sign of Capricorn which began on December 22nd and continues through January 19th. Capricorn is an earth sign, persistent, strong, and an overachiever. For this sign, PATRON suggests a Silver Negroni.
They say, “This spirits-forward Silver Negroni is the perfect way to encapsulate a Capricorn’s strong yet effortless nature.” It’s the cocktail pictured above and here is the recipe.
Combine 1 1/2 ounces Patrón Silver, 1 ounce MARTINI Bitter and 1 ounce MARTINI Rosso Vermouth in an ice-filled rocks glass. Next, stir ten revolutions. Garnish with an orange slice.
I’m an Aquarius and my cocktail is a Verde Margarita. However, over the weekend I was hanging out with one of my Aries friends. Their cocktail pairing is Bloody Maria, a riff on the Bloody Mary. I never really thought about putting tequila in this brunch cocktail instead of vodka. However, it worked brilliantly. The key is using a good, pure tasting blanco or silver tequila such as PATRON.
Here is the complete list of cocktails pairings for your astrological sign, along with recipes.
