For those who believe in astrology, sun signs or zodiac signs are all about a way to understand your nature and identity. And if you do believe your zodiac traits line up with your true nature as a human being, then taking it into account while indulging in spirits and cocktails—and even mocktails—makes utter sense. These drinks not only provide you with the opportunity to try spirits and ingredients that are perfectly attuned to your inner self, but also make for the most relaxed drinking experiences too. In this series, Zodiac Chiller, we will explore spirits, cocktails and mocktails that are perfectly suited to your true nature, your astrological signs, just so you can have the most divine spirituous experiences. 

When it comes to Gemini, the third sign of the zodiac calendar, the basic nature of this sun sign is adaptability and sociability. Born between May 21 and June 21, people with this sun sign are known for their multi-faceted nature and popularity. Naturally then, the cocktails and mocktails these guys enjoy the most are equally versatile and popular.

If you are wondering how to create the perfect, tailor-made cocktails and mocktails for Geminis, here are a few recipes you can start with.
