Boozey Tuesday: Tax Day edition

via www.thekitchn.com
So, its tax day.  Either you're one of those people who is elated to get some HUGE refund to spend on that new thing you want but probably don't need.  Or, you're one of those people who considers this akin to death, a reminder that we live in a government that takes an unbelievable portion of our salaries away, "Who the HELL is FICA?!?" has probably been uttered out of your mouth at least once.  Either way, I am thinking this requires a drink.

On tax day, happy or sad, I think you should keep it simple.  And my latest spirit of choice is whisky.  The genius of a simple "neat" cocktail is that it can be easily ordered (and it's impossible to mess up) at a bar, or you can enjoy from the comfort of your own couch.  One of my favorite blogs, The Kitchn, gives you a step by step guide to making yourself ready to drink your whisky neat here.

But, it's tax day so who has time for steps (you just did enough of those steps in filing your returns, right!?) I say choose your favorite (or ask your bartender for his favorite, then order the one one grade down from that one) pour yourself 1.5 ounces, sip and enjoy.

Erica Michele's Tax Day - Neat
1.5 ounces of Jameson
Clean Glass (tumbler, or rock's glass preferred)
Stella Artois Beer bottle (as a chaser)

Pour Jameson into a glass. Open your Stella. Take a lingering sip of the Jameson. 30 seconds later take a lingering sip of beer. Repeat until you love the American government again.
