Vodka horoscopes: What your birth month cocktail says about you.

Vodka is one of the most versatile spirits in the cocktail world, but that also makes it near impossible not to get overwhelmed with your mixing options. Especially if you already get decision paralysis just from looking at the juices, soft drinks and other mixers at the supermarket.

Thankfully we’ve got a solution for that, and it involves your star sign.

Whether you’re a moody and mysterious Scorpio gunning for something as provocative as your personality, or an eccentric Aries searching for the ‘next big thing’, we’ve got your go-to vodka cocktail sorted.

Even better, most of these recipes are super easy to make at home and only require a few simple ingredients, so organise your girlfriends and line up that Spotify playlist for a wonderful night in, or a weekend brunch.

Name a more delightful set up. We'll wait.

Just note that when it comes to DIY cocktails, make sure you invest in a top-quality vodka.

Something like Vodka O - a premium vodka that's made by triple-distilling fresh New Zealand whey and charcoal filtering. That means you'll get a smoother and tastier finish for your at-home drinks, whether it's a two-ingredient vodka martini, or something a bit more fun and garnished.

Without further ado, see what your next soirée has in store for you, with a signature vodka cocktail matched perfectly to suit your astrological zodiac. OH YEAH.

Aquarius - Rosemary honey vodka spritzer.

Free-spirited, non-conformist and eccentric, your vodka cocktail of choice might not be found on every menu, but let's face it, you wouldn't order it if it was. Your rebellious streak likes to choose something that raises eyebrows, but as an Aquarius, you know you're onto something good.

To make this delicious concoction, mix together one shot of vodka, a squeeze of honey and lemon, with a sprig of rosemary, and shake it up. Serve in a tall glass and top it all off with a generous handful of ice and soda water.

Pisces - Cosmopolitan

The go-to drink for the Sex and the City crew, the Pisces' artistic, romantic and gregarious natures are exceptionally matched with the sweet and tangy notes of the classic cosmo. You see the world through rose-coloured glasses and what better drink to have by your side as you spend the night laughing away with friends.

Shake up Carrie Bradshaw's favourite drink by combining three parts cranberry juice, two parts vodka and one part orange liqueur with a very generous squeeze of lime juice. Simply fabulous.

Aries - Screwdriver

A straight shooter and a go-getter, as an Aries you're never low on energy and passionate about trying new things.

A classic Screwdriver cocktail starts with one part vodka and two parts orange juice, but its simplicity opens up the drink to experimentation. Perhaps create an ombre effect by carefully pouring the orange-vodka mix over a few drops of grenadine syrup or add in a shot of vanilla liqueur and you'll have yourself a Harvey Wallbanger. The options are endless and wonderfully suited to your adventurous and enthusiastic Aries spirit.

Taurus - Vodka martini

Taurus(es) love luxury and finer things in life, and why shouldn't you? You only live once, so why accept second best? Vodka martinis truly show off the qualities of the spirit because there's nowhere to hide when there's only two ingredients in the mix - vodka and vermouth.

But that's okay, because you only buy the best anyway.

Gemini - Bloody Mary

A distinctive cocktail for a distinctive star sign, Geminis are known for their intelligent, artistic and expressive natures. You express who you are at 150 percent at all times - you're a little extra.

So, you might want a drink that's "yours" whether it's cocktail hour or a brunch accompaniment - like a Bloody Mary.

Bloody Marys involve a mix of vodka, lemon juice, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce, salt and tomato juice, but we know you probably think your ratio and recipe is the best. That's okay, we won't try and argue with you.

Cancer - Moscow Mule

A spicy, zesty drink for the zodiac's most tenacious sign. You're more of a homebody than a party animal and would rather a home-cooked meal with your nearest and dearest than swapping small talk with strangers. When it comes to your drink of choice, you want something that's cosy but still fun. Enter the ginger and lime-filled Moscow Mule.

It's essentially lime juice, vodka and ginger beer and best served in its distinctive copper mug - the perfect accompaniment for a girl's night in.

Leo - Sex on the Beach

Leos are unapologetically the life of the party and you have absolutely no qualms about being so. You like to be at the centre of attention but you're also loyal, dedicated and give the best of yourself to your friends and lovers, alike.

Despite its brazen name, this fruity cocktail is super easy to make and delicious to drink. Grab a glass and add one shot of vodka and half a shot of peach schnapps and top with equal amounts of orange and cranberry juice. Most importantly, serve up your creation with a cheeky smile.

Virgo - Spiked elderflower lemonade

It's a common misconception that Virgos have perfectionist, exacting standards, but no, you just like things done in a certain way. You're the 'hostess with the most-est' and love to charm your guests with a refreshing beverage of homemade lemonade, spiked with a hit of vodka and also a twist of elderflower cordial to keep things fun.

It's elegant and classy, just like you.

Libra - Kombucha vodka spritz

Libras are all about balance and productivity. Your standard weekend probably begins with pre-drinks at yours, followed by a spot of dancing or an impromptu living room karaoke session.

And in the spirit of balance, you've probably already booked in early-morning yoga, brunch with friends and a dash around the farmer's markets.

To make this crowd-pleasing punch, combine three-parts kombucha and one-part vodka, and garnish with fruit slices or muddled berries to add extra vibrancy and flavour. Who says you can't have it all?

Scorpio - Extra dirty martini

It's all in the name. It's provocative, intense and mysterious, just like yourself. It also happens to be Jame Bond's go-to drink. Confidence? We think not.

To enjoy, take your standard vodka martini, but add an extra dash of olive brine and serve, shaken not stirred.

But you knew that already.

Sagittarius - Caipiroska

Pronounced cai-pi-ros-ska, this refreshing drink finds it origin on the sunny shores of Brazil and is wonderfully suited to the adventurous, energetic and curious traits of zodiac's most optimistic sign. You're always planning your next holiday and what better drink to get the travel juices flowing than this exotic tipple?

Simply muddle a few lime wedges and brown sugar in a glass until the sugar dissolves and add your vodka. It's traditionally drunken without a mixer, but feel free to top with soda water.

Capricorn - Espresso martini

What better cocktail to pair with a Capricorn's workaholic nature than the ever so trendy and sophisticated espresso martini. Make this your signature cocktail and perfect it at home by getting the ratio of vodka, coffee liqueur, espresso and sugar syrup just right. You could even add a drizzle of chocolate sauce if you're really planning on letting your hair down.
