We love patio season! As the weather heats up, so does your desire to sit in the sun and sip a cool cocktail with friends. Order up the most fitting and refreshing warm weather cocktails for your horoscope sign (while drinking responsibly, of course).
Ask the bartender what's new and you'll be sure to give it a go. Male or female, Aries tends to like manly drinks like Jack Daniels and Coke or scotch on the rocks. The ladies of Sex and the City, though -- two of whom are Aries in real life -- always favored the vodka, Cointreau and cranberry juice of the Cosmopolitan.
Just a beer, please! Good European beer marketed in America, like Beck's or Heineken, will satisfy your taste buds. Ballpark beer is even better -- because it comes with a hot dog! For more refined Taurean moods, fruity drinks with sweetness, like a Daiquiri, or with a touch of dairy, such as a Pina Colada or Mudslide, will quench your thirst.
The social talk is as important as the drinks. No lonely dive bars for the Twin -- you need social and mental stimulation. Add a cool, refreshing beverage like a white wine spritzer or a melon martini and you'll be loving life. Summer wine tastings and drink sampler nights appeal to your curiosity as well.

Cancers enjoy drinks that represent the best local produce of a particular region. Sangria is a summer delight, pairing wine with citrus and spice. Other favorites include the exotic Cuban Mojito, and Mexican tequila drinks such as Texas Tea and, of course, the classic Margarita.
Sunny drinks such as the Lemon Drop martini or the Leo Special made with premium brand liquor will appeal. A Cadillac Margarita made with Grand Marnier in a stylish glass will also make your Lion purr. Some one's birthday? Consider a book on how to prepare classic cocktails in his or her home bar.
Specialty wines and micro-brewed beers may appeal to your Virgin love of craft. Even better, consider taking your Virgin on a tour of a winery or microbrewery complete with taste testing. Cocktails with green garnishes or themes such as mint juleps, Midori Sours and Grasshoppers may pique your curiosity and earthy tastes.
Drinks served in fine glassware will go a long way to please a Libra, as the visual and aesthetic experience of the cocktail is very important. You Librans also enjoy the elegance of champagne, consumed in romantic settings and combined with the sweetness of fruit, as in the classic Mimosa. No slamming fists on the bar, please -- you like it serene.

The darker, the better for reclusive Scorpio. This applies to a bar's ambience as well as to the liquor itself -- dimly lit, out of the way bars, and drinks using bourbon, scotch, dark wines and dark rum enhance your tendency to go within. Refreshing savory drinks like the Bloody Mary or Bahama Mama may make relaxing by the pool more enjoyable.
Sagittarians are usually game for something with a kick -- like a whiskey punch, a Long Island Iced Tea or a Hurricane. The Archer also loves the flair of international drinks such as the popular Brazilian Caipirinha. Along with Pisces, Sagittarius is the sign prone to overdoing it, so keep that designated driver or taxi company phone number handy.
Capricorns like cocktails classic and on the dry side -- just like them! Gin and tonic and standard martinis, to be exact (without the frilly garnishes). Like Leo, you Capricorns prefer high-end liquors that speak to his or her good taste. Try a classic after-dinner ritual like dry port with cheese to please your Mountain Goat.
Admit it, Aquarius: in college or your younger years, you would have been voted "Most Likely to Consume Jello Shots." Your taste still tends toward the quirky, including Kamikaze shooters or trendy drinks such as the Pomtini, though you do enjoy the effervescence of a good champagne. Coffee drinks such as Keoki Coffee offer the alertness you crave, especially among a group of friends.
Perceptive Pisces picks up subtle flavors, and will especially enjoy wine tasting or sampling cocktails by a lake or body of water. Favorite summer drinks of the Fish may include Fish House Punch (rum, Cognac, lemon juice, peach brandy) or a glass of top-notch dessert wine.
