Juniper & Jupiter
Energetic Alignment: Spirituality, Healing, Love, Protection, Purification, Wisdom, Divination
Cleanse away the chaos and align to the spiritual energies of the Sagittarius New Moon and eclipse with this crisp, refreshing, and slightly spicy bees knees variation. In comparison to its whiskey-based counterparts (the Spiced Sagittarius Hot Toddy and Whiskey sour for the eclipse), this cocktail utilizes the magic of juniper through gin. Aligned to the Sun, Moon, and associated with Sagittarius, juniper is powerful purification herb, that also enhances psychic connection, inspires healing, and helps with grounding as well. Along with purifying rosemary, invigorating ginger, spices like nutmeg and clove along with honey to help heighten spiritual energies and invoke wisdom – this bees knees variation is the ideal for a crisp cocktail for cleansing and spiritual alignment for this eclipse.
