This week, I did something a little different in honor of the IRS with Bartender Barry along for the ride. Here is a collection of themed cocktails guaranteed to numb the pain. If nothing else, these will make you laugh. Happy tax day. Remember, if you owed… you earned!
Citrusy and refreshing. It will temporarily soothe the pain of filing last minute.
- 2 ounces gin
- 3/4 ounce dry vermouth
- 3/4 ounce limoncello
- dash green Chartreuse
- Stir with ice and strain into chilled cocktail glass; garnish with lemon peel.
Ahhh, the color of money! You can drink to it’s memory if you pay or celebrate it if you are getting a refund. Since it is tax season, we poured a double.
- 1/2 ounce pear-flavored vodka
- 1/2 ounce green melon liqueur (preferably Midori)
- juice of 1/2 lemon
1 1/2 oz Jack Daniel’s® Tennessee whiskey
If all else fails to sum up your experience, there is always go with this classic.
- 1 1/2 ounces sloe gin
- 1 ounce orange juice
- Garnish: orange slice
- Optional: 3/4 ounce vodka
Pour the sloe gin (or sloe gin and vodka) into a highball glass filled with ice. Top with orange juice and garnish with an orange slice.
Thanks for the inspiration IRS!
