So whether you are on top of it and filed 3 months early, or one at the post office on April 15th, or an accountant who has made it through one more tax season, sit back and enjoy this classic cocktail to celebrate your accomplishment.
Gin and orange juice were a popular combination during the golden years of the cocktail age and there are a number of variations on this same gin-vermouth-orange juice combination.
