That dreaded yearly task is done and you finally know how much money you are either getting back or handing over. That's right, you have completed your income taxes! 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. If this one isn't to your taste, you may want to try one of these: Bronx, Abbey Cocktail, Orange Martini, or Will Rogers Cocktail.

Income Tax Cocktail - Just Like Income Taxes, Member stanmsak

So with the end of tax season I decided to give this cocktail a try. I used Beefeater gin and good quality vermouths along with fresh squeezed orange juice and 2 dashes of Agnosturo. I was amazed at how the sweet vermouth really takes this drink over, although I'm sure that the Agnostura probably helps reinforce the sweet vermouth more than any other of the ingredients. In the end, I was glad to finish this drink, just like I was glad to be done with my taxes!
