Welcome to Libra Season!
Yet again I am writing another post in my Zodiac Cocktail Series because we are already to Libra season which is CRAZY to me! How did we get this far!? Didn’t I just start this series with Capricorn like, last week? (FYI, Cap is in early Jan). WHAT!
But I digress – Libras, this one’s for you!
You can celebrate the start of Libra season by: being good at seeing through scams and scammy people (except when you’re in love with them); having about 5 different crushes on 5 different people at any given time; being incredibly indecisive, and when you finally pick something, you regret it almost instantly; being social but low-key lonely at heart; having impeccable taste in clothing and the finer things in life; being spoiled; being a great friend but not as great of a listener; having a penchant for justice and fairness; can be slightly narcissistic; and LOOOOOVVVVIIINNNGGGG drama, even more so than Leo.
Libra is a Cardinal air sign – cardinal meaning receptive and eager to initiate change (as each cardinal sign represents a new season) and liking to take control, and air meaning a thinking sign as opposed to a feeling sign, and the sign associated with intellect. Libra is the only sign of the Zodiac that doesn’t have a living thing representing it, like a human, animal, or fish. Libras symbol is the scale, and they definitely strive to ensure their moral compass is equal and balanced.
Libras are ruled by the planet Venus, which makes sense because Libras LOVE love. Libras love to be in love, they love to feel desired, and they love falling in love most of all. Libras are known to have multiple crushes on multiple people, waiting for the right one to sweep Libra off their feet. While they are an air sign, they are slightly more in-tune with their emotions than other air signs, Gemini and Aquarius, and therefore wouldn’t mind a romantic, grand gesture to really win their heart over.
The thing is, Libras represent balance but life isn’t always perfectly balanced, and you don’t always get what you want. That’s why Libras tend to be fiercely competitive in getting the things they want and reaching an acceptable standard of living. They want to be refined, accurate and elegant but it doesn’t always happen that way, so they do what they can to be surrounded by the best.
Typically, Libras have a very hard time making decisions in almost every aspect of their lives, mainly because they tend to be idealistic and they change their mind a LOT. Otherwise, Libras enjoy the finer things in life, such as beautiful art and music and luxurious items, such as clothing or cars. They like to feel spoiled and on-trend with the latest goings-on or trends. They tend to be happy and smile a lot with an amusing personality and great conversation. Libras are usually interested in legal matters and has great business instincts.
Expressed positively, Libras are cooperative and trustworthy; refined, elegant and artistic, even; idealistic and romantic; strong believers in good causes; very fair; charming; excellent companions and friends (and boy, do they have a lot of friends!); great negotiators and excellent conversationalists; and romantic and sincere.
Expressed negatively, however, Libras can be lazy and extremely indecisive; manipulative; jealous; overly flirtatious, bordering on unfaithful; narcissistic; know-it-all; overbearing; overly inserts themselves into drama; and even depressed or sulky.
When I was thinking of cocktails for Libra, I knew it had to be something trendy, flirty, and pretty, because these Libras expect all that and a hot person to serve it to them! Since White Claw has officially taken the world by storm, I knew we had to feature this effervescent and bubbly hard seltzer as a component to the cocktail. But I also had a magical ingredient up my sleeve to make this cocktail COLOR-CHANGING and extra!
It’s this liquid dropper called B’Lure and it is sold at most beverage warehouses like Total Wine and BevMo. It’s made with butterfly pea extract, which is an exotic tea flower. It’s naturally blue, but when acid is added to it, it changes colors right before your eyes to a gorgeous pinkish purple.
The result is a bubbly, pretty, sparkling White Claw Raspberry Lemonade that all the Libras are going to LOVE.
- 1.5 ounces vodka (I used raspberry vodka, but regular works)
- 1 ounce simple syrup
- 3 droppers of B'Lure
- 3 ounces lemonade
- Raspberry White Claw
- In a small hurricane glass, add in the vodka, simple syrup, and B'Lure, stirring with a cocktail spoon. Add in the lemonade slowly and watch the cocktail change colors right before your eyes! Fill glass with ice and top off with raspberry White Claw.
Fizzy, pretty and easy, this cocktail is one no Libra will be able to resist!
