Aquarius New Moon Mixology

Aquarius New Moon Mixology

Align to the Aquarius New Moon in true “cup-bearer” form with this cherry, sage, and lemon concoction to inspire optimism, purification, and insight.

A Bit About this Aquarius New Moon

New moons can be an especially potent time for new beginnings, but the moon in Aquarius offers a particularly limitless energy to truly expand one’s horizons. Known as the rebel or revolutionary, this sign is about expanding past limitations and innovation. And for those feeling influenced by this Mercury retrograde, this can be the perfect time to dig deep and purify away the old (and relax with a concoction). Utilizing ingredients associated with the moon, Aquarius, and accounting for Mercury retrograde, this is just the beverage to purify the old away, get wisdom and insight, and invoke the creativity and optimism Aquarius is known for. 

As always, make the drink recipe work for you, per your own preferences. Work with what you have!

Other drinks I recommend at this time:

  • “Sake Inner Child” From my book WitchCraft Cocktails, this Sake Shirley temple is designed to invoke the youthful vision, imagination, and innovation Aquarius is known for. 
  • Aquarius Champagne Julep” From earlier this year, with mint, sage, and other aligned ingredients, just swap the lime for lemon (or keep as is) and you have another potent potion for the Aquarius New Moon.
  • “Communication Breakdown” For those looking to relax amidst Mercury Retrograde, this concoction is aligned for that very purpose! Additionally, you can the sage simple syrup from here for that drink, or vice versa! (I highly recommend Mercurial Grounding Elixir from my book for Mercury Retrograde as well!).

The Drink

Energetic Alignment: Wisdom, Purification, Optimism

Inspire some Aquarian optimism, creativity, and perspective with this tart and tangy cherry, sage, and lemon concoction. With ingredients like sage and rosemary to cleanse old ideas and limitations away (and to temporarily neutralize Mercury retrograde energies), and cherry, apple, and lemon to inspire creativity and happiness, this cheerful beverage is a fun way to call down the Aquarius new moon for new insight and exciting possibilities.

Ingredients

  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 1 ounce sparkling white wine

Instructions
 

  • Place apple slice, rosemary, and syrup in a cocktail shaker. Muddle ingredients, so that the apple and rosemary is expressed into the syrup and broken up. Add in lemon, juice, vodka, ice and shake. Strain into a glass over ice and top with bubbles of choice. Garnish with crescent apple slice to represent the moon and rosemary sprig. Additionally, you can lightly burn the rosemary to produce some cleansing smoke or for a smoked aroma as sipping your concoction. 

Notes

A note on the Sage Simple Syrup ~
Simple Syrup is equal parts sugar to hot water. It keeps a level of consistency in sweetness from drink to drink. Simply mix equal parts of sugar and hot water, and allow to cool before use. For this recipe, I recommend pouring 1/4 cup hot water over 5+ culinary sage leaves (dried or fresh) and letting it steep like a tea for 5 minutes before mixing in the sugar. This allows for a fun and easy way to add nuanced and unique flavors to your concoctions. Additionally, you can heat the syrup over the stove if desired.
