Certain times of the year call for certain beverages. You have your Christmas egg nog, margaritas aplenty for Cinco de Drinko, and countless other excuses through the year to knock back a drink. One day that needs no excuse is, of course, April 15. The mere mention strikes dread in the hearts of Americans -- even more than Friday the 13th.
It just so happens that almost a century ago, someone created a salve for this week's woes. It is, of course, the Income Tax cocktail. It's one of the more obscure vintage cocktails, but it deserves to be hoisted this weekend, all through Monday . . . Heck, it's great any time of year.
