1040, deductable cocktail

This is not a cocktail created by the IRS — though there are citizens who would rather the government’s tax collectors spend their time drinking instead of auditing. It is, instead, a drink dedicated to all who have wandered through tax code hell in pursuit of finishing their return forms accurately and on time.

1040 1040 tax vert
3/4 ounce rum
3/4 ounce gin
1/2 ounce triple sec
1/4 ounce pastis
1/4 ounce lime juice
1 egg white

Put all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously without ice for 15 seconds. Add ice and shake again until thoroughly chilled. Pour into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.

Tasting notes: A stiff cocktail cleanse after accounting for all that filthy lucre. Plan to drink two, and arrange for someone else to handle the steering wheel and the till.

Tomorrow: Wednesday
