The best part of summer is starting hot days off with agua frescas and ending them caldos. If you feel as overwhelmed by all the colorful options at the agua frescas stands as we do, don’t fret.
The stars have already spoken. Here’s the agua fresca your body thirsts for based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
This year, Agua de Jamaica will energize your way through what might be a challenging summer. Listen up, it’ll only be as challenging as you make it. And you, ambitious ram, like a challenge. Agua de jamaica will give you sweet and tartness to keep you inspired and satisfied all summer long.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
While it’s true that Tauruses are known for being work horses, the bull is actually a large puppy in a field. You like to be outside and feel soothed by a cool breeze and delicate tastes. Horchata is all that in one, silky smooth, warming glass. Disfrute.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Mercury rules your sign, and as the planet enters Leo this week, your perspective on communication and learning will shift. Chia seeds fuel the brain and so will this Mexican Cucumber Lime Chia Agua Fresca.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Your inner crab may be the wateriest of the water signs, giving you the one superhero power most folks can’t handle: picking up on other people’s emotions. That inner chime is exhausting, so let it settle with a fermented Tepache de Piña.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Like Agua de Tamarindo, your summer style is always a classic and crowd favorite. It’s not an agua fresca party without Agua de Tamarindo just like it’s just not a party without a Leo.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo is represented by the goddess of wheat and agriculture. Quench your inner goddess with Agua de Cebada (Barley). Cebada is one of the first cultivated grains over 10,000 years ago. This agua fresca will feel like coming home this summer.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You’re all about balance and harmony, and while most agua frescos are known for being sweet, a lil agua de alfalfa never hurt nobody. It’s basically tasty green juice.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
We all knew Scorpios would be enjoying agua de nopal all summer, but not for the reasons you think. The flavors of nopal aren’t for everyone, but those who like it are reaping major benefits. Rich in calcium, magnesium, and iron, there’s a reason agua de nopal is more hydrating than any other bland agua. You spice up our lives, Scorpios, with your rich palettes.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Earth’s best adventurer is no niña fresa, and yet, agua de fresas are going to be your right-hand thirst quencher this summer. You’ll be craving more intimacy this summer, so while you adventure, enjoy this comforting taste of home.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Fellow seagoats, ya es Verano! Everyone thinks we’re overly ambitious and practical, but come nightfall and close friends, we like a good party. We just like to start with the basics. The basics to a good piña colada is hydration via agua piña.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Any Aquarius knows that they are not a watery bunch. You’re the last air sign of the zodiac, represented by a water bearer—a healer. Agua fresca de melon is one of the most hydrating and healing aguas our mystical Aquarius could bestow. Drink up.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Did you know watermelon is is 91.5 percent water? Pisces signs, represented by the two cutest fish in the sea, are also very watery and fluid in this life. Agua de sandia represents who you are year round.
2020 feels like being thrown off the top of the Hell in a Cell structure and crashing through the announcement table, fam. It’s been painful and disorienting. Even if we don’t know where this wild year will lead us, at the very least we still have the release of WWE 2K Battlegrounds to look forward to. Can I have a Yassss [in Spanish]? Thank you. That was beautiful.

While 2020 figures itself out, at the very least we can unleash some madrasos on our friends and primos while playing this high flying, face smashing, adrenaline exploding brawl-style arcade game full of WWE Superstars and Legends. A HUEVO! But if you find it difficult to decide which finishing move you’re going to decimate your friends or primos with, NO WORRIES, baby…you can always look to the cosmos – because this article is going to tell you which WWE Finishing move you are based on your horoscope AND how you can send your opponents crying to their mamas.
Aries. You’re Randy Orton’s RKO. But, Aries. Come on. You already knew that, fam. You’re calculated. Aggressive. Assertive. You’ll run into your friend at the supermarket and they’ll be telling you how their mom is doing good and how she’s around the corner getting some hair dye and BAM! RKO! You’ll drop that person right in the middle of the cereal aisle because you spotted them an elote that one time and they never paid you back. Aries, you’re wild. And that spontaneity will serve you well when you play WWE 2K Battlegrounds.
Taurus, you love beautiful things and you’re a very committed person – meaning, you just don’t let things GO! Taurus, it’s obvious. You’re CharlotteFlair’s Figure 8. Your finisher is beautiful. Stunning. And when you got that baby locked in, Taurus, you’ll never let go! You’re like my mom who never forgave me that one time I ordered pizza when she was about to reheat calabazas she made a week ago. So lock in that Figure 8, Taurus. Make your enemies throw their controllers in anger.
Dear, Gemini, of course you’re going to drop two finishers on somebody. You’ve got that crazy cosmic duality in you, fam. This means you’re definitely Sasha’s Back Stabber AND Bank Statement. When people play WWE 2K Battlegrounds with you, they’ll think they’re only playing a game. Ba-HAHAHAH! This ain’t a game to you! You came to win, Gemini. But, please Gemini, do us all a favor. Don’t play with llorones. Cause you’re gonna make someone cry with those moves.
Cancer, your finishing move is Keith Lee’s Big Bang Catastrophe. You have great emotional depth. You’re sensitive. So it makes sense that your move should rock your opponent to their core, while bringing the two of you close. Cancer, when you drop that Big Bang Catastrophe, you are going to bond with your opponent so much. As their back slams onto the mat and you land, full-weight, on top of them…you’ll be closer than arroz y frijoles. Or like asada on tortilla. Or any other delicious food pairings you prefer. Cancer, thank you for caring so much about how you destroy your amigos and siblings.
Leo, this is your world, baby. You’re the king of the ring, which means, obvio, your finisher is The Undertaker’s Tombstone Piledriver. This is a legendary move. People don’t come back from this. One time I was watching the Undertaker deliver the Tombstone Piledriver on TV and from behind I heard my mom say to me, “Ese hombre no tiene madre.” I turned to my mom and said…”No. El Undertaker no tiene madre. Viene del infierno.” My mom gasped. She’d never met someone que no tiene madre before. So, when you’re playing that WWE 2K Battlegrounds, te suplico…take it easy on the other players. The Undertaker is not like the rest of us.
Virgo, you’re a perfectionist. You’re detail oriented. Your finisher is Drew McIntyre’s Future Shock DDT. This is a precision move. When you were a kid in line to hit the piñata, everyone swung blindfolded with all their might and made a fool of themselves. But not you, Virgo. You were solving formulas and equations in your head. By the time they handed you the palo to swing at the piñata, you knew the precise moment to swing, exploding that piñata and catching everyone off-guard, including your tío who was previously holding the piñata rope and subsequently hanging from the roof of the garage. Drop that DDT, baby. Drop it like it’s hot.
Libra you’re all about harmony and human connection. AWWW…Libra, eres muy cute. Except for when you’re making human connection by using Becky Lynch’s Disarm-Her finishing move to dislocate your opponent’s shoulder. Libra, while most people make connections by holding hands, or a simply high 5’ing… you don’t. Because your idea of connection is grabbing someone by the wrist, like Becky Lynch, and trying to yank their arm out. Libra, use this move in WWE 2K Battlegrounds to disable that cousin who taunted you saying, “You fight like a girl.” After you break their arm in the video game, let them know…”You’re damn right I do.”
Scorpio, te vale madre what others think of you. You’re a Stone Cold Stunner, baby. You do things como te dé la gana. So when you step into the ring, you make your own rules. When your friend says your playing is “weak” – STUNNER. When someone tries to pick up a chair in the game – STUNNER. When your prima says, “I’m gonna pause, I need to use the restroom” – STUNNER. When your mom comes in asking if anyone wants limonada. STUN…wait, NO. Don’t give your a’ma a stunner. That’s rude. Your mom does a lot. Say, “please and thank you…” then give everyone else a STUNNER and drink your limonada as if it tastes like victory.
Sagittarius, you’re known for taking the road less traveled. When most go for a hard scoop slam, not you Sagittarius. Not you. You do Strowman’s Running Powerslam. Because a body slam is such a “from point A to point B” type of move. But you like to lift your opponents onto your shoulder like they’re a wholesale-sized bag of dog food and you run Sagittarius. You run from point A, to B, to C, to D, and you slam your friend’s character in the game somewhere around point Y, or Z. And when your friend says, “I’m tired of losing…can we order a pizza?” You say to them, “No. I take the road less traveled. I want Peruvian food. And I’d also like to travel away from not playing. We shall continue to play, and I shall continue to destroy you. I take the road less traveled.”
Capricorn. You don’t mess around. Neither does Asuka’s Asuka Lock, which totally makes sense as your WWE finishing move. Others may see you as serious and traditional, but when you’ve got that Asuka Lock on them all they’re gonna see is that they’re about to lose the match, because you’ve got a grip on them that’s tighter than your abuelo’s abnormally strong handshake. Why do all abuelos have that grip, though? My hand hurts just thinking about it…And just like your abuelo makes you panic everytime he holds out his hand to saludar, so will your enemies when you play as Asuka.
Aquarius, you’re a little bit of a peacock, and that’s meant in a good way. Your finishing move is Rey Mysterio’s 619. And it makes sense. You have panache. You’ve got style. You’ve got dance moves that make your mom wanna tell you, “deberías ir a la iglesia más seguido (you should go to church more often).” The 619 is a special move. It’s got style. It’s got excitement. And it’s got you swinging two boots like a roundhouse kick at your opponent’s face. Listen to the stars, Aquarius…the stars want you to kick your opponent in the face.
Pisces, you are artistic. You’re a dreamer. You go with the flow. So when you flatten your opponents like handmade tortillas, you bet your mother’s enchiladas you’re using Alexa Bliss’s Twisted Bliss. Not only is this finisher a true work of art, but when your amiga sees you soaring off the top turnbuckle in the game, she’ll suddenly get the urge to apologize for all the wrong she’s ever done to you: like when she said your brother reminds her of that sexy reggaeton artist. Because as soon as that Twisted Bliss connects and her character in the game is totally norteada, her only hope of survival is that you have mercy on her. But WWE 2K Battlegrounds isn’t about mercy. If she wanted mercy, she should’ve played dominoes with her mom.
WWE 2K Battlegrounds is out NOW! Whatever your zodiac sign, this game is loaded with finishers from tons of WWE Superstars that totally align with your cosmic energy. So get ready to spend hours of fun drop kicking your friends in the back of the head, crashing your brother through a table, and giving your cousins spears, rock bottoms, and glam slams – because this game takes wrestling to new heights with over-the-top action you won’t get anywhere else.
As promised, here’s the WWE 2K Battlegrounds trailer!
*Please don’t try these moves at home. No. Not even with a helmet.*
We’ve seen all kinds of takes on the timeless classic that is a Margarita. From frozen Margaritas to ones with cranberry juice and dashes of blue curaçao and twists of basil and ginger beer we’ve literally seen it all. Or so we thought.
Recently, Red Lobster announced that they’re doing a Mountain Dew-take on the beloved and salty tequila cocktail.
Red Lobster’s DEW-Garita promises to set you aglow.
The drink is the first official Mountain Dew cocktail and of course, it is bright lime green. While the cocktail’s recipe is being kept strictly under wraps, like everything at Red Lobster’s, it’s supposed to pair “perfectly” with Red Lobster’s iconic Cheddar Bay Biscuits.
“Red Lobster is thrilled to work with PepsiCo, not only because it has a great portfolio of brands, but specifically because of the food and beverage innovation possibilities,” Nelson Griffin,the Senior Vice President and Chief Supply Chain Officer at Red Lobster said in a statement about the drink.
Red Lobster’s DEW-Garita is due to debut at Red Lobster locations nationwide in September and by the end of 2020.
The Margarita is an iconic Mexican drink related to a drink called Rhe Daisy.
The classic Tequila sour cocktail is one of the most beloved cocktails in the world. According to Wine Enthusiast “One story claims that the drink was created in 1938, as Mexican restaurant owner Carlos (Danny) Herrera mixed it for gorgeous Ziegfeld showgirl Marjorie King. Supposedly, Tequila was the only alcohol that King would abide, so Herrera added lime juice and salt.”
To make your own classic Margarita check out this recipe below
2 ounces white Tequila
1 ounce orange liqueur
1 ounce lime juice
Shake out coarse salt on a plate. Wet the rim of a glass by using the lime wedge. Press the rim of the glass in the plate of salt to coat. Add ice to the glass.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the rest of the ingredients. Shake well, and pour into the prepared glass over ice.
