Imaginative, empathetic, intuitive, sensitive, and the perfect precursor for my cocktail, escapist: Ruled by Neptune, Pisces you see what you want to see. Dreamy illusions and confusions are the norm—rose colored glasses, if you will. Sweet manipulation is often what you get with these sometimes slippery characters. Events in their lives are often recurrent; think Liz Taylor, Dr. Seuss, Einstein, and Liza Minnelli—17 marriages between the four. My original Pisces cocktail idea, as you can be sometimes hard to motivate, was just a case of your favorite booze. Yes, I said a case. And then I'd submit absolutely nothing for the other signs. However, the humor could be lost on some and you'd probably forever think of me as just another dallying Pisces. So instead I drew inspiration from a friend who served amazing grapes—pickled, sweet, tangy, subtle, and delicious—at a party, and wound up with the Pekel, a simple mix of pickle juice, vodka, and pickled grapes. The drink's slightly murky appearance will subtly remind you of the waters you're all too familiar navigating, Pisces.
