Mixing for the Ram: Zodiac-Inspired Cocktails for Aries

The spirited fire sign of Aries, born between March 21 and April 19, is known for their boldness, passion, and competitive spirit. Aries individuals are leaders and love to be at the forefront of any adventure. Their go-getter attitude and dynamism make for a personality that’s best described as a blazing trail of energy. So, how do you capture this fierce vibrancy in a glass? We've crafted a selection of Zodiac-inspired cocktails specially designed for Aries, ensuring that the drink's essence is as potent as the zodiac sign it honors.

Let’s mix it up and give Aries a drink they can truly call their own!

The Aries Highball

Aries individuals are known to be straightforward and intense, a quality mirrored in a classic highball with a few bold twists. Start with a base spirit that matches the Aries zeal—perhaps a robust whiskey or a fiery tequila. Layer in a splash of ginger beer for that extra kick and a squeeze of fresh lime to signify vitality. Finally, for an Aries touch, a dash of bitters can add that hint of complexity that comes with depth of character.


  • 2 oz whiskey or tequila
  • 4 oz ginger beer
  • 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters


  1. Fill a highball glass with ice.
  2. Add your base spirit and lime juice.
  3. Top with ginger beer.
  4. Stir gently and add bitters.
  5. Garnish with a slice of ginger or a lime wedge.

This highball is a testament to Aries energy—uncomplicated, yet full of life.

The Fiery Aperitif

Aries is guided by the element of fire, and what better way to honor this than with a cocktail that encapsulates the warm and stimulating properties of fire? We combine an aromatic spirit like Aperol or Campari, which carries the fervor of the sun (Aries' ruling planet), with a splash of soda for effervescence, and a twist of orange to preserve that dynamic flair.


  • 1 1/2 oz Aperol or Campari
  • Splash of soda water
  • Orange twist


  1. Fill a rocks glass with ice.
  2. Pour in the Aperol or Campari.
  3. Top with soda water.
  4. Squeeze the oils from the orange twist over the drink, and drop it in.

The Fiery Aperitif ignites the palate, much like an Aries ignites a room with their presence.

The Ram's Refresher

Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, deserves a first-class cocktail. For the Ram's Refresher, we turn to the zesty profile of a gin-based refresher, a cocktail that combines the best of the zodiac's energy with its penchant for new beginnings. The Ram's Refresher includes a quality gin, muddled with fresh mint and a touch of elderflower syrup, topped with a generous pour of sparkling water, and a squeeze of lime for that celestial zing.


  • 2 oz gin
  • 1 oz elderflower syrup
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
  • Sparkling water


  1. In a shaker, muddle a few mint leaves with the lime juice.
  2. Add the gin and elderflower syrup.
  3. Strain the mixture into a tall glass filled with ice.
  4. Top with sparkling water.
  5. Stir gently and garnish with a sprig of mint.

The Ram's Refresher emboldens the palate with a burst of vibrant and rejuvenating flavors.

The Aries Old Fashioned

For Aries, we bring a modern take on a classic cocktail—the Old Fashioned. Known for their appreciation of the past, Aries’ fiery temperament can appreciate the smoky allure of a bourbon or the aromatic nuances of a cognac. In this twist on the traditional, we infuse the spirit with a stick of cinnamon during the stirring process, imparting a warming essence that is quintessentially Aries.


  • 2 oz bourbon or cognac
  • 1 sugar cube
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • Cinnamon stick
  • Orange peel


  1. In a mixing glass, muddle the sugar cube with the bitters.
  2. Add the spirit and fill the glass with ice.
  3. Stir well until the mixture is thoroughly chilled.
  4. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice.
  5. Garnish with the cinnamon stick and a twist of orange peel.

The Aries Old Fashioned stands the test of time while still blazing a new path.

The Mars Martini

Ruling the first house of the zodiac, Aries is closely connected to the red planet, Mars. It’s only fitting that we offer a Martian cocktail worthy of an Aries. In the Mars Martini, embrace the crispness and clarity of a classic vodka or gin martini, but with a vibrant crimson hue. We achieve this by adding a splash of pomegranate juice, symbolizing not just Mars but also the heart of the Aries individual.


  • 2 1/2 oz vodka or gin
  • 1/2 oz dry vermouth
  • Splash of pomegranate juice
  • Lemon twist


  1. In a mixing glass, combine the vodka or gin, dry vermouth, and pomegranate juice.
  2. Fill the glass with ice and stir until chilled.
  3. Strain the mixture into a martini glass.
  4. Express the lemon twist over the cocktail to release its oils, and drop it in.

The Mars Martini is more than just a drink; it's an intergalactic experience ready to launch an Aries into the night.
