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

In a rocks glass combine Lucid Absinthe, coffee liqueur and crème liqueur and serve.
Taxa-tini – When the IRS gives you lemons, make this cocktail!

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

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.
