The Perfect Valentine's Day Cocktail For Each Zodiac Sign

A lot of people consider February to be one of the best months of the year because of Valentine's Day. Named after Roman Catholic priest Saint Valentine who secretly married soldiers in Christian ceremonies in the 3rd Century, the holiday exists now as an annual festive celebration to honor love and friendship (via Roses Only).


Whether you're totally single and ready to celebrate Valentine's Day solo, you have a romantic partner to spend the day with, or you're opting for a friendly event surrounded by your platonic besties, you have the power of making Valentine's Day a magical experience. If you decide to celebrate by yourself, you can binge-watch some rom-coms, order yourself some takeout to be delivered to your doorstep, or indulge in relaxing spa treatments to make yourself feel as spoiled as possible. If you're celebrating with a romantic partner, you too can plan a sensual night at a hotel room or head to a fancy restaurant all dressed up together. If Galentine's Day (or something similar) is more of your vibe, you can go with the flow of whatever your social circle has planned.


According to, Americans drink more alcohol than usual whenever holidays roll around. It's likely due to the way that holidays bring people together in social settings such as parties and dinner dates, and Valentine's Day is no different. So no matter how you're spending the day of love, these are the best cocktails to sip based on your zodiac sign.

Aries: Paper Plane Cocktail

If you are an Aries, then you are surely aware of the flighty and fiery personality you're known to have. Co-Star describes Aries individuals as being people who get bored easily and are willing to do just about anything on a whim.

For this reason, the Paper Plane Cocktail is ideal for them to drink on Valentine's Day. 


The Paper Plane cocktail is sour, sweet, and herbal. To make it, you'll need bourbon, Aperol, Amaro Nonino, and freshly squeezed lemon juice. While plenty of popular cocktails have olives, cherries, or mint leaves added as basic garnishes, this uniquely intense drink gets its name because it is meant to be served with a small hand-folded paper plane as a garnish. The special touch can act as a reminder to Arians about having the freedom to book a flight anywhere, anytime, with the one they love.

Taurus: Spiced Grand Marnier Hot Chocolate

And one of the most dependable and comforting drinks to sip on during the winter season, and even on Valentine's Day, is hot chocolate.
