April 15th is a day that we can all agree that involves some moaning, some heartburn, some headaches, and usually not a lot of fun. We all know what it means. It means let’s give a chunk of money to Uncle Sam. So today’s cocktail, The Income Tax Martini, (clever, huh?) is a strong one. Real strong. Good but strong! This classic gin martini has a fruity twist to it.
Income Tax Martini
- 2 ounces gin
- 1/4 ounce sweet vermouth
- 1/4 ounce dry vermouth
- 1 ounce orange juice
- Angostura bitters to taste
- Orange twist for garnish
Pour all ingredients into a shaker with ice. Pour into glass and garnish with an orange twist.
Have something to eat before consuming this potent concoction. It’s a strong one!
So did you get your taxes done in time? Are you one of the lucky ones getting a refund? At least it’s the weekend, right? Let’s toast to that! Cheers!
