Cancer Season Cocktails To Sip For Summer


In partnership with Kinky Beverages®

Cancer season is here, which means it’s time to unwind and enjoy the summer vibes. Kick back with two Cancer season cocktails mixed by Kinky Beverages. 

Make way for the Crab! After a buzzy Gemini season—one that dovetailed with two eclipses and a frenetic Mercury retrograde—we predict that you could use A LOT more chill in your life. Good news! The zodiac’s lowkey Crab takes the helm from June 20 to July 22. This gives you permission to slow down and enjoy good times with your inner circle of friends and family.

The question is, which side of Cancer do you want to tap into? Do you feel like an In Demand Crab who loves a family gathering? Or a Sand Crab who lives to hit the beach for hours of unapologetic lounging? Whatever mood you’re in (and believe us, there will be many when emo Cancer rules the skies), you can sweeten the celebration with these Cancer season cocktails. Mixed with two tantalizing blends from Kinky Beverages®, pour these for a summertime toast or a solo refresher. 

Cocktail # 1 KINKY Blue Hawaiian

For the Sand Crab

Drink this when: sensitive, solitary, or
short-tempered

Cocktail #2 KINKY Sangria

For the In Demand Crab

Drink this when: Enjoy when you’re feeling
inviting, caring, or loyal

But what if you’re not a Cancer? That’s okay! Consider yourself a “Crab by association” for the next four weeks while the Sun sits pretty in this water sign. In other words, no matter your birthday, you’ll feel the creative, caring energy of this zodiac season from June 20 and July 22, 2021. It also means you need two umbrellas: One for the beach and one for your drink.

Are you feeling like a Sand Crab or an In Demand Crab today?

SAND CRAB:
·  Absorbs the mood of the room
·  So cannot deal with people’s issues
·  Recharges with close friends and pool time
·  Considers tan lines an accessory

IN DEMAND CRAB:
·  Coordinates outings and hosts the BBQs
·  Makes everyone feel right at home
·  Snaps documentary-style photos while you’re not looking
·  Never forgets to celebrate a birthday, holiday or milestone

Odds are good, you’ll experience both of these moods before July 22! And that’s the perfect excuse to mix up both of these Cancer season cocktails. Check back monthly! Kinky Beverages will be playing bartender for us with a round of recipes for every zodiac season. That means we’ll be sipping our way through the star signs with you all year. Cheers!
