Not all drinks are made for everyone. Why not discover what your your Chinese zodiac says about you, and learn which lucky drink pairs perfectly with your animal sign!

Rat (鼠—Shǔ)

People born in: 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020

In Chinese culture, Rats are highly respectable and even revered. As the first animal of the Chinese Zodiac, they are often seen as quick thinking and opportunistic; always taking risks with great success. They’ve raced against the odds to emerge first, which explains why so many Rats are prosperous and often celebrating success.

Your Lucky Drinks:
Champagnes or Sparkling Drinks

Celebratory drinks like champagne, prosecco and other bubblies are great ways for Rats to celebrate their many successes and milestones!

Toasts or gifts from Rats are always more meaningful and sincere. That’s because Rats often reserve celebrations only for accomplishments and individuals that they hold in high regard.

Ox (⽜—Niu)

People born in: 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021

Ever reliable and dependable, people born in the year of the Ox are diligent workers and have a strong sense of responsibility. No hurdle is too tough for them to cross. They are patient and understanding always, and are never one to impose. Yet, never let their quiet and peaceful demeanour fool you — they are powerful individuals who work with steadfast determination to achieve their goals.

Your Lucky Drinks:
Beer + Whiskey Combo or Magnum Wines

Sure. Strong. Steadfast. These words describe you if you’re an Ox, and your drink of choice should live up to them.

Take it up a notch and hit up a Boilermaker — a mighty mug of beer with a shot of whiskey. Or bring out a magnum bottle of wine to match the presence of an Ox’s personality in any room.

Tiger (⻁—Hǔ)

People born in: 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022

Tigers are born leaders who are highly independent and hold themselves with high esteem. Yet, underneath their proud and composed exterior lie a well of complex emotions and thoughts. They are fearsome when unleashed, especially when their strong sense of justice is provoked. That said, they are often able to keep their fury in check. Naturally protective, Tigers are never afraid to use their power to keep their loved ones safe.

Your Lucky Drinks:
Delicately Balanced Cocktails, or Wines

Delicately balanced cocktails or dry white wines are the lucky drinks for people born in the year of the Tiger.

Just like the Tiger’s personality, these drinks are made of some of the strongest liquors around — but balance them delicately, and they become incredibly smooth and elegant.

Rabbit (兔—Tù)

People born in: 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023

People born in the year of the Rabbit are often gentle, fun and laid-back. They are also some of the most patient individuals around, owing a lot of their natural intelligence and charm. Success often follows Rabbits, for their attention to detail is unmatched.

Your Lucky Drinks:
Gins, Fruit Punches and Zesty Citrus Drinks

Rabbits know how to live it up and celebrate life. With your fun-loving personality and detail-oriented sense of responsibility, Rabbits often plan some of the awesomest parties around.

Match your sense of fun with zesty drinks, fruity punches and the ever popular Gin (and tonic).

Dragon (龙—Lóng)

People born in: 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024

Mysterious and mythical, people born in the year of the Dragon thirst for adventure and romance. Dragons are often focussed and more ambitious than others—but only on the things they consider important to them. They are confident and excitable, but occasionally reckless (in a good way).

Your Lucky Drinks:
Flaming Drinks or any Bold & Daring Drink

Satisfy your adventurous nature by taking on daring drinks others would usually shy from. Sounds cliché, but flaming drinks are perfect for Dragons: they are visual spectacles and hits all the right spots.

Just remember you’re still human, so always put out your flaming shots before downing them.

Snake (蛇—Shé)

People born in: 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013, 2025

Snakes are some of the most wise and insightful individuals around. They are idealists, though their meditative and enigmatic personalities can come across as aloof. But deep inside, Snakes are warm and enthusiastic, always going the extra mile to understand and connect with those they let past their cooler visages.

Your Lucky Drinks:
Whiskey, Añejo Tequila or Black Russians

Within the youthful and cool demeanour of Snakes rest very old souls who often prefer deep, meaningful conversations than frivolous small talk.

Thus, aged tequilas and whiskeys, which are beautifully complex and mellowed over time, are the perfect companion drink for Snakes.

Horse (⻢—Mǎ)

People born in: 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014, 2026

Determination and never backing down are the mantra of people born in the year of the horse. They draw heavily on experience, which fills them with positive energy to push themselves harder to succeed. Horses love the freedom to express themselves and do all that their heart desires, even if they sometimes lose interest and move on to the next big thing quickly.

Your Lucky Drinks:
Full Bodied Wines or Mezcals

Horses are free roamers, forging ahead with fresh ideas, driven by untamed determination and experience. With your expressive personality you thrive best when given the freedom to be yourself.

Elegant yet powerful drinks like full bodied wines and mezcals (a type of tequila that’s a bit like whiskey) have deep heritage with a resurgent freshness.

Goat (羊—Yang)

People born in: 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015, 2027

People born in the year of the Goat are often known to be pure and kind. They are likeable, sociable, generous and fun-loving. When a Goat finds his or her passion, they will throw everything they have to fulfil it. Goats are masters of persuasion and patience, which makes them very influential and valuable friends.

Your Lucky Drinks:
Fruity Liquers and Bubbly Drinks

Fruity, bubbly and fun drinks go very well with a Goat’s personality.

When paired with their kindly and soft natures, these drinks allow Goats to be the soul of any party—even if they aren’t (and refuse to be) the center of attention.

Monkey (猴—Hóu)

People born in: 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, 2028

Monkeys are individuals who answer to no one else but themselves. They are driven heavily by their interests and passions, which they will pursue with all their heart. With their energetic and curious personalities, they are always eager to experiment and have a ball of a time doing so.

Your Lucky Drinks:
Creative Spirits and Cocktails

Naturally creative, Monkeys are full of cheeky curiosity and eager excitement to try new things and shake up the status quo.

So, when it comes to drinks, shake up the conventional and mix (safely) to your hearts content! Keep experimenting to find a cocktail you love, and make that your signature.

Rooster (鸡—Jī)

People born in: 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, 2029

If you’re looking for a friend, you can’t find better than Roosters. They have a keen empathic sense, and are very quick to react to others’ moods and feelings. This makes them very talented in artistic expression and creativity. Oftentimes, they go with their guts and intuition which are often uncannily accurate.

Your Lucky Drinks:
Margaritas or any Colourful, Beachy Cocktail

Their high EQ and ability to sense the moods of others often make Roosters the life of the party. Their artistic and creative streak make any interaction with a Rooster fun and engaging.

Colourful and beachy cocktails sit very well with Roosters, matching their vigour quite perfectly.

Dog (狗—Gǒu)

People born in: 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030

The greatest trait of persons born in the year of the Dog is their sense of justice. They are highly valued everywhere, for they are fair, loyal and incredibly trustworthy. Dogs never break the rules, but are willing to bend them for anyone they love. They value long lasting relationships and treasure these bonds for life.

Your Lucky Drinks:
Old Fashioned or Drinks Straight Up

Keep it real and true—these are the hallmarks of anyone with the Dog as their zodiac sign. Their calm and reliable demeanour matches with classic and timeless drinks.

Go for the Old Fashioned drinks, or any liquor that’s taken straight (or neat).

Pig (猪—Zhū)

People born in: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031

The kind, lovable and ever-cheerful Pigs make great company and even greater friends. They bring down-to-earth vibes to any occasion, and enjoy indulging in good times with like-minded friends. Despite their carefree attitudes, they are always responsible and are hardly excessive.

Your Lucky Drinks:
Craft Beers or Vodka

Craft beers and creamy vodkas go very well with the Pig’s cheerful and laid back personalities. They are pretty easily accessible drinks, and together with the presence of a Pig, it is the perfect catalytic combo for great times anywhere.
