Cocktail Recipes To Help Ease The Pain Of Taxes

Happy Friday! This is the last weekend before your taxes are due. Oh did you forget? Yes, your federal taxes are due on Tuesday April 15th. To help take the sting out of paying a chunk of your hard earned money, I have a few cocktail recipes to help ease the pain.
Standard Deduction Absinthe

The Standard Deduction – Look at it this way… You have 364 days until you have to file again!

1 oz. Lucid Absinthe
1 oz. coffee liqueur
1 oz. crème liqueur

In a rocks glass combine Lucid Absinthe, coffee liqueur and crème liqueur and serve.






Tax-tini sobieski vodka cocktail

Taxa-tini – When the IRS gives you lemons, make this cocktail!

1 ½ oz. Sobieski vodka
½ oz. orange liqueur
¾ oz. freshly-squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon superfine sugar
Twisted lemon peel for garnish

Add Sobieski Vodka, orange liqueur and lemon juice in a shaker with ice. Shake and serve in a chilled
sugar rimmed glass, garnished with a lemon peel.

CAMUS VSOP Elegance Cognac tax time cocktail The Procrastinator





The Procrastinator – If you are standing in line at the post office at midnight – this cocktail tastes great
in a to-go cup!

1 ½ oz. CAMUS VSOP Elegance Cognac
¾ oz. ruby port
¾ oz. dry vermouth
Lemon twist for garnish
Combine ingredients over ice and stir. Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with a lemon twist.


Please enjoy, but only after you have filled out your 1040. It might not be the best idea to drink and do math at the same time.
