What To Drink on Income Tax Day?

Income Tax Cocktail in Cocktail Glass amidst tax forms

Why, The Income Tax Cocktail, Of Course! 

Tax day falls on Tuesday, April 17th this year. We get a couple extra days to file because the 15th is a Sunday and the 16th is Patriot’s Day in Massachusetts and Maine. (We’re catching a break, because the IRS doesn’t always grant the Patriot’s Day extension; Wikipedia has an explanation).

So why am I discussing this? Mainly as a shameless way of promoting one of my all-time most popular posts, The Income Tax Cocktail. This post was originally published about a year ago, at a time when readership of Kitchen Riffs was much less than it is today. I’m also pleased to announce that gojee is featuring the Income Tax Cocktail as one of their Gojee Drinks Top 3 this weekend.

So if you missed it last year, now’s a great time to learn about this classic cocktail. And if you read the post when it first appeared (or subsequently found it), now is the perfect time to revisit it. The Income Tax Cocktail is a great drink for celebrating — or consoling yourself  — when your taxes are finally finished.

I’ll be back to my regular programming with a new post this Sunday, about a way to use that leftover Easter ham bone.

  2. I remember seeing this sometime last year. At first I thought I was experiencing deja vu. I'm going to have to make it now! Thanks for the reminder.

    1. Hi Katherine, it's a fun drink. Doesn't really make doing taxes fun, but nice to have a reward when they're done. Welcome back from your vacation! It sounds like you had a terrific time. And thanks for the comment.
