Margarita, A Cocktail for Cancer

The margarita is well-loved by just about everyone for its ability to bring people together. Compassionate, understanding Cancer (June 22-July 22) is sure to relate.

Of course, you can split a few heavy pitchers among friends at your local restaurant. We’ve all enjoyed that, and a few of us know of children conceived after such revelry! That’s not what a Cancer has in mind. The Crab loves to give to those who really appreciate the intention behind their gestures, so the best margarita would involve just a close friends, some well-made nibbles, and lots of conversation. To Cancer, “midnight margaritas” a la Practical Magic is their idea of a perfect time: dancing around a beautiful kitchen, pouring drinks for their loved ones by the light of the moon, and a communal attempt to cope with how unhinged life seems to be.
