We’ve Got The Perfect Wine And Queso Pairing For You According To Your Zodiac Sign

Between red, rosé, white or blends, people’s favorite wine can not only divide them amongst friends but it also says a lot about their personality. If you’ve ever found yourself at the bar wanting to order something fancy but can’t tell apart a Merlot from a Pinot Grig to “what in the world is a Gewurztraminer?!,” look no further than our guide on the best wine for your zodiac sign. Make yourself a winning charcuterie with the perfect cheeses to go with that glass and enjoy a pairing that truly reflects you.

Aries: Apothic Inferno and Smoked Gouda

Aries are known for their fiery and stubborn temperament and impatience, so if you’re an Aries and need to a wind after a long day of being a boss, you like to turn to a red wine. There’s something about that deep devilish color that makes you feel empowered, which is why we love Apothic Inferno Red as the quintessential wine for an intense ram. Aged in whiskey barrels, this wine comes with that extra kick that’s as badass as you are. Pair with a smoked gouda for a flavor that’s as bold as your personality.

Taurus: Red Burgundy and Pistachio and Fig Goat Cheese

Bulls are all about the finer things, which is why you definitely expect no less when it comes to your wine. A red Burgundy from France has your name written all over it, Taurus. It’s refined, delicious, and very expensive — just how you like everything. This Pinot Noir pairs best with a goat cheese, but if you really want your Taurean stamp on it, bougie up that chevre even more by opting for one with fig or pistachio to truly please your rich palette.

Gemini: Moscato and Brie

Twin Geminis thrive on duality, so when it comes to your taste buds, you crave sweet as much as you do salty and savory. The perfect wine for a Gemini is a sweet Moscato, something fruity and still a bit fancy. Noted with apricot, peach, and nectarine, this pairs beautifully with the savory flavors of soft cheeses like goat or brie. A citrusy glass with a bit of chevre? This pairing is as likable as you are.

Cancer: Tempranillo and smoked meats

Strong-willed and clever, Cancers need a wine as strong as their dignity. Reach from your protective little shell for a Tempranillo from Spain, a ruby red wine known for its notes of berries, vanilla, and tobacco. You’re all about creature comforts and this wine will definitely taste like home, which is why we suggest opting for some warm comfort food over traditional cheese pairings for this particular wine. Sip a glass with a bit of lasagna or smoked meats and kick up those precious ‘lil crab legs, Cancer.

Leo: Cabernet Sauvignon and Asiago

Ah, what wine could possibly be suitable for someone as regal as a Leo? You’re a leader, an attention-grabber, and as dignified as they come. A red Bourdeaux Cabernet Sauvignon is you in a bottle, my royal lion! With notes of currant, plum, and cedar, this French wine will have you saying “oui oui oui!” to another glass. Cabs go best with nutty, aged cheese, so pick out a block of some bold aged Asiago or Parmigiano while you watch over your kingdom.

Virgo: Sauvignon Blanc and Goat Cheese

Grounded and reliable, a Virgo expects the same from their wine. Every Virgo should reach for a Sauvignon Blanc if they want something as down-to-earth as themselves. This wine has grassy notes of herb and citrus that are just as balanced as your personality. Nom on some goat cheese and maybe even add some greens like asparagus or zucchini and a plate of oysters for some time to reflect on how you always get things right the first time — just like your vin et fromage!

Libra: Sparkling White and Camembert

For Libras, your wine consumption probably means you love finding any excuse to celebrate with friends. As a very social sign of the zodiac, you view drinking spirits as something done in the festive company of others. For the outgoing people person that you are, nothing says a great night like a fun sparkling white as bubbly as your personality! Since this spirit is dry, a soft and creamy cheese creates the perfect balance in taste and texture, so slice up that brie or camembert and share with friends for a fun and lively evening.

Scorpio: Syrah and Manchego

The tannin-packed dark and sexy flavor of a Syrah is Scorpio in a bottle. Too bad there’s no way you could ever put a cork on your passionate nature, saucy Scorpion! You’d be a fool to think a Scorpio would be seen drinking anything other than a deep red, and nothing matches their personality more than the full-bodied punch of flavor of a Syrah and its peppery aftertaste. Just like your old soul, partake in a nutty aged cheese like a Manchego as you eye everyone who isn’t as cool as you.

Sagittarius: Malbec and Aged Cheddar

For someone as a clear-thinking as my centaur explorers, you need a wine that envigorates that sense of adventure in you. Look no further than the ever-drinkable Malbec from Argentina. With its plush taste and ripe tannins, this smooth red perfectly fits one of your chill nights spent only with a couple of your closest friends, as Sagittarians like to do. Cut up some aged cheddar while you talk about your big picture ideas for the rest of the night!

Capricorn: Cabernet Sauvignon and Aged Cheddar

Practical, ambitious, and wise, the classic Cabernet Sauvignon simply screams ultimate Capricorn. You work hard and need a drink that matches your drive, which is exactly the popular regality of a good, bold cab. Aged, nutty cheeses go best with this type of red, so go for something fun like an aged cheddar with caramelized onion to celebrate your latest achievement you undoubtedly just conquered like the hard-working boss babe you are.

Aquarius: Orange Wine and Gruyere

Aquarians are one of the most offbeat and unpredictable signs of the zodiac. You’re funny, smart, but also a huge humanitarian with a big heart and a socially-responsible outlook at life. For quirky Aquarians, go for something like an orange wine, a skin-contact wine soaked in citrus peels with a bold, nutty flavor. This unconventional wine flavor sums up the water-bearing Aquarius’ individuality and complements with the flavors of something like a gruyere cheese to really stand out from the pack.

Pisces: Rosé and Feta

Sweet, dreamy Pisces, is there any wine that seems more well-matched for your light and earthy persona than the summer Rosé? The popular sunny day spirit of choice is a no-brainer for our sincere Pisces. Just like our last night of the zodiac, Rosé is actually one of the oldest forms of wine and has probably seen as many past lives as you, my fish friend. Pair a glass with some chunks of creamy feta or Havarti to bring out the fruity and floral flavors of the Rosé. It’s sweet and well-liked, just like you!

Which WWE Finishing Move are you Based on your Horoscope?

Which WWE Finishing Move are you Based on your Horoscope?

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. 

(Scroll to the bottom to check out the WWE 2K Battlegrounds trailer!)

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

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

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 Charlotte Flair’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.

GEMINI

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.*

Mountain Dew Margaritas Are Apparently A Thing At Red Lobster Now?

Mountain Dew Margaritas Are Apparently A Thing At Red Lobster Now?

Matt Winkelmeyer / Getty

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

Ingredients

  • Coarse salt
  • Lime wedge
  • 2 ounces white Tequila
  • 1 ounce orange liqueur
  • 1 ounce lime juice

Directions

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.
