It’s D-Day…or T-Day or whatever you call April 15th. Whatever you call it, it’s Tax day here in the US. For many of you it’s a bad day…a day you have to write a check, of some magnitude, to the government. For some of you, you’ll be getting a nice refund check in the coming weeks.
I know that there’s pretty much nothing I can say that will be witty or pithy enough to get your mind off what this day is.
So I thought the only appropriate post today would be for me to give you the Income Tax Cocktail. Yes, this is a real cocktail recipe, not something that I made up. Go ahead and Google it if you don’t believe me. The income tax cocktail is an orangey gin cocktail that tends toward the sweeter side. I suppose to make you feel better about the day.
Without further adieu, I give you the gin cocktail to enjoy this evening: the income tax cocktail. Enjoy!
So who’s more shallow?
