Fire Signs - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
The sign you don’t want to start a fight with because they’ll win. Fire signs are always moving forward and never looking back. Impatient by nature, it would seem offbrand if we didn’t start with the fire sign, or set a cocktail on fire. Meet the FireStarter
2 ounce Los Sundays Coconut tequila
1 ounce fresh lime juice
.75 ounce orgeat
.25 ounce pineapple gum syrup
1.5 ounce coconut mango simple syrup
3 dashes angostura bitters (on top)
Add all ingredients to shaker (don't add bitters).

How to make Coconut Mango Simple Syrup:
Peel skin off 1 large mango and cut the meat from the core.
Blend fresh coconut meat, mango and coconut millk together.
Add a small amount of water if mixture is too thick.
Fine strain and mix equal parts sugar. Whisk until sugar is well dissolved.
Bottle & refrigerate.
Earth Signs - Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Notoriously the most grounded of the signs, these are the ones that will always tell you how it is, and keep it real. Delivering their opinions straight up, finding their perfect tequila cocktail, we didn't have to look far. A classic cocktail with a Sundays twist, the addition of orgeat syrup to this cocktail will stay true to their earthy roots. Earth signs get ready to shake up the Sundays Coconut Margarita.
2oz Los Sundays Coconut Tequila
1oz Fresh Lime Juice
1oz Orgeat Syrup
2oz Soda Water
Cocktail is shaken, double strained into glassware over fresh ice and topped with sparkling soda water.
Air Signs - Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Air Signs. The thinkers & doers of the zodiac. Air signs lead with their brains, unlike some of the other signs who lead with their feelings, so the drink for the Air Signs needed to be smart a clear. They can come off cool but they do have a heart…they just don’t wear it on their sleeves. The Coconut Mojito is a smart twist on a rum cocktail…clear & what you see is what you get.
6 mint leaves, plus additional for garnish
2 oz Los Sundays Coconut
1 oz lime juice
1 oz simple syrup
2 oz tequila
2 to 4 oz soda water

Water Signs - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
The water sign’s emotions flow like waves of the ocean, sometimes overflowing (looking at you Aquarius) They have creative souls and usually rely on their hearts to make a decision.
Artist and honest, their cocktail needed to be creative…and flowing with liquid. The passionfruit margarita with an extra shot of Blanco is their perfect pairing.
