Buying alcohol can be expensive. Things start to add up halfway through the semester and your pockets can’t afford to taking such a beating for much longer in the name of of turning up. But what to do? Look no further than your zodiac sign. For every personal alignment of the stars, there is a complimentary, affordable booze you should drink your next night out (and for many nights to come). You were born on your birthday for a reason, take advantage of it. Here’s which cheap booze you should drink, based on your zodiac sign.  

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Boxed Wine

You tend to be emotional and sympathetic, and nothing brings that side of you out more than a glass of white wine. But my word of advice: You might want to skip the Franzia brand.

Leo (July 23 – August 22): Fireball

You enjoy being the center of attention, and like this dynamic cinnamon liquor, you’re the life of the party. Just because a Leo often comes off as a little self-centered doesn’t mean you won’t share — we know you really just want everyone to have as much fun as you.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Twisted Tea

Even though you’re pickier than most, this barely tastes like the cheap drink it is. Plus, you like to always be in control, so the low alcohol content is ideal. Now you can comfortably enjoy watching everyone else let loose, because Virgos are usually the last people we’ll ever see dancing on top of a bar. However, that doesn't mean you still can't dance with a tea in hand.

Libra (September 23 – October 23): Jungle Juice

Let’s be honest, making decisions isn’t your forte. To complement your fair personality, jungle juice has a little bit of everything in it. Everybody wins. Try a citrusy recipe for your next batch; it’s a guaranteed crowd pleaser.

Scorpio (October 24 – November 22): Jose Cuervo

Tequila practically spells trouble, but you’re courageous enough to take back-to-back shots, hold the salt and lime. Like with most things, you’re in on the secret before anyone else. And apparently tequila has some hidden health benefits.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Four Loko

Once known as a “blackout-in-a-can,” this drink is a match made in heaven for a lively and dynamic Sagittarius. Just be careful, because while these cans may say only 12 percent alcohol, these premium malt beverages will definitely sneak up on you.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): Lime-a-Rita

Practical as always, these cans have enough alcohol in them to give you a nice buzz after only a couple so you won’t have to break the bank. Your palate is too sophisticated for cheap beer, but you’re too cautious to drink classic margs all night, so the next best thing is a combo of them both.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Peppermint Schnapps

Aquarius’s need a drink as unique as they are, ideally the most eccentric liquor you can get your hands on. Chances are, you’ll be found running around with a bottle of chocolate syrup and a can of whipped cream as well, because of course you’d make Christmas flavored shooters.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Malibu Original Rum

Known to be compassionate and loving, you should have a drink that will complement your sweet disposition, just like this coconut flavored favorite. If you’re looking for new ways to utilize rum, don’t be afraid to try some imaginative ideas that will spark your well-known creative side.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Everclear

Always too adventurous for your own good, this infamous and potent grain liquor is a fun challenge for you. We know you’re always confident in your abilities, but take it slow for once; Everclear is one the strongest alcohols in the world.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Lite Beer

It’s simple, reliable, and no frills, just like you are—you can’t go too wrong with that. Not of huge fan of the cheaper brands? Find a budget beer that you can actually stomach.

Gemini (May 21- June 20): Champagne

Impulsive and expressive, you’re as unpredictable and fun as opening a bottle of Andre’s. Not just for New Years’ Eve, this bottle of bubbly will suit you just fine. If you’re really looking to turn the party up a notch, try a Chambong next time you pop open that cork.
