RECIPE: Bacon Cocktail For Tax Time

If you bring home the bacon, you’ve got to pay tax on it—very soon.

Even if you’ve already filed, Tax Day (on April 18th this year*) is a painful reminder of those hard earned dollars that never make it to the bank.

*Why not April 15th? The District of Columbia celebrates Emancipation Day on April 16, the anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s signature of the Compensated Emancipation Act. But this year, April 16 falls on a Saturday, so Emancipation Day will be celebrated on Friday, April 15th.

So, you deserve a drink. Mix up a “Bringing Home the Bacon” shot, courtesy of Hornitos Tequila. Sweet and smoky, it’s easy to make.

  • Here’s the recipe. Invite your crew and serve strips of caramelized bacon as the hors d’oeuvre (the recipe is included with the cocktail).
  • How about a BLT Bloody Mary?

    WHEN DID INCOME TAX BEGIN?

    The 16th Amendment, ratified by Congress on February 3, 1913, is generally cited as the beginning of personal income taxes. However, to pay for expenses during the Civil War, Congress passed the Revenue Act of 1861, which included a tax on personal income. Learn more.
