Venus Transit Cocktail

The next big astrological event? The Venus Transit is occuring tomorrow. As the planet Venus moves, it will be in rare transit over the sun. Says Gwen Sutherland Kaiser, aka the Intoxicated Zodiac, Venus — the Goddess of love — "will infuse our atmosphere with her Venusian frequency of peace, beauty, and love to facilitate in our healing... Love is coming to Earth in a big way."

Because the Goddess of Love is somewhat of a sweet sap, the Venus Transit cocktail is just as sweet. Made with Black Cherry Vodka from Zodiac, brandied cherries, and a spicy syrup, you'll fall in love — with the booze, of course.
