Christmas day is fast approaching, and many of us are looking forward to the joys of gift giving, seeing loved ones and the almighty Christmas dinner. But while what’s on our plates is a given, what will we be drinking to accompany our meal?
Every person’s preferences are different, which is why online cake shop Jack and beyond has teamed up with PsychicWorld to reveal which Christmas drink each zodiac sign should enjoy with their meals this year!
ARIES (March 21 – April 19): CRANBERRY MIMOSA
Jackandbeyond.com recommends that Aries get stuck in with cranberry mimosas this Christmas. Aries are bold and ambitious zodiacs, so the kick of champagne and cranberry juice will be sure to satisfy them. Not to mention the red colouring to match their fiery tempers!
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): BAILEYS
Taureans are calmer and more collected, preferring comfort and smoothness over a kick of flavour. A Taurus therefore can’t go wrong with some Baileys on ice to maintain serenity on Christmas day.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): BUCK’S FIZZ
With frolics of festivities everywhere, Geminis won’t be able to focus on one thing for more than five minutes. To match your flitting and sociable personalities, treat yourselves to a buck’s fizz which will pack a punch and keep you entertained!
CANCER (June 21 – July ): MULLED WINE
As the ‘mothers’ of the zodiac signs, a Cancer will appreciate their drink being homely and comforting. A perfect addition to Cancers’ Christmas dinners is a heart-warming mulled wine to evoke happiness and merriment.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): LIMONCELLO
Leos, treat yourselves to a pop of lemon with Limoncello as you take your rightful place at the centre of the table! Try it neat with ice or as part of a lemon-inspired cocktail and let the tartness spur on your vivacious spirit.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): WHITE RUSSIAN
Logical, practical and a bit of a perfectionist, Virgos care more about the flavour combinations in their Christmas drinks than whether it gets them drunk. That’s why the white Russian is perfect, with the mix of bitter vodka, strong coffee and sweet cream being worthy of their appreciation.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): SAUVIGNON BLANC
As connoisseurs in everything they do, a Libra will know that white wine matches turkey perfectly. They value matching their palate well, so JackandBeyond.com recommends a good sauvignon blanc to mark the day!
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): ESPRESSO MARTINI
Scorpios are passionate and calculated in everything they do. With a bit of sensual mystery hiding on Christmas day, the intense flavour of an espresso martini will satisfy their cravings.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21): SHERRY
A Sagittarius is adventurous, hilarious and full of stories. What better drink to accompany their Christmas dinners than a big glass of sherry? A strong swig every now and then will kick start another festive story to keep the Christmas spirit going all day long.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19): BRANDY
With unwavering focus to conquer the feast in front of them, a Capricorn will appreciate something that won’t distract from or ruin their meal. Strong enough to keep them concentrated, balanced enough not to overshadow those pigs in blankets, a brandy is perfect.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): TIA MARIA
This Christmas and especially with the year we’ve had, Aquarians will be looking for something a bit different to drink. Despising conventionality, they should embrace their uniqueness this Christmas and opt for a tasty Tia Maria – perfect neat or as a base for an experimental cocktail.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20): SNOWBALL COCKTAIL
Christmas is the time to dream and get lost in our imagination, which is what a Pisces loves to do. A Pisces should embrace their kind and creative nature by enjoying a snowball cocktail on Christmas day – gentle in flavour and ethereal in appearance.
