Even though there is a three-day extension, if you are like me, you still have not filed your taxes. Of course, that means that this weekend will be filled with receipts, forms and numerically-induced headaches.
Luckily, there is an end in sight – and it will be sweet!
That’s right, I present you with my newest tea cocktail, the perfect reward for a long weekend of filing!
TAX DAY TEA
¾ oz. Bourbon (recommended brand: Bulleit or Bulleit Rye)
¾ oz. Lillet Rouge
1 ½ oz. homemade Sweet Tea vodka
½ oz. fresh-squeezed lemon juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice and and shake well, for at least 10-15 seconds.
Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon wedge.
