Drink the Zodiac way at Mandarin bar

What’s your sign?

If you’re still trying to figure out your signature drink—we all need one—consider a trip to the Mandarin Oriental’s 23rd-floor lobby bar, where property mixologist William Perbellini has recently reinstalled the Zodiac Cocktail program. These libations are created with our astrological characteristics in mind, which is why the viciously delicious Red Rock (Sotol, Mezcal infused with grilled pineapple and chili, aloe liqueur, prickly pear, lime and rosemary) matches memorable Virgos like me. We’re humble, too.

Feel free to dabble outside your sign. Aries’ El Conquistador is fiery with tequila, honeysuckle and peppercorn syrup, while the Taurus choice, the Speziato, is as unique as cocktails get with Peruvian pisco, Aperol, red bell pepper, basil and fresh lemon.

The best part: Visit when your birthday sign is in bloom (through May 20 for Taurus, for example) and enjoy a complimentary cocktail.
