- ¾ ounce fresh lemon juice
- ¾ ounce thyme simple syrup
- 1 ounce light rum
- 2-4 ounces Champagne

First, muddle the figs and lemon juice and thyme syrup into a cocktail shaker. Next, add in ice and rum. Shake until well chilled, then double strain into a glass. Top with champagne and garnish with slices of fig and a sprig of thyme. Alternatively, Champagne can be substituted with prosecco or cava.
This cocktail is an easy riff on the classic mojito, but it still has enough flare to catch the attention of a Taurus. Both mint and apricots are representative of the bull sign.

- 3-4 ounces club soda (or as needed)
Add the mint and 1 wedge of lime into a highball glass and muddle together to release the oils of the mint. Next, add the sugar, apricot jam and remaining lime wedges and continue to muddle until sugar is dissolved into the lime juice then add the rum. Fill the glass with crushed ice and top it off with club soda.
