Income Tax Cocktail

income tax cocktail

Here’s another great cocktail from The Savoy Cocktail Book. One thing I’ve noticed about these early-1900s cocktail books is that they often post their citrus measurements by size and not ounce, like “1/4 of a lime,” or “juice of one lemon.” It’s a quick guide, sure, but an argument against it is that citrus varies in size and juiciness based on where you are in the world.

Measurements aside, let’s just enjoy a drink! This cocktail looks awesomely orange and tastes great.
