Tax Day Got You Bitter? Cocktail Cures

Sympathetic to the tax day woes of their customers, the folks at Café Matou in Chicago have dreamed up a special drink to relieve tax stress: Le Percepteur ("tax man" in French). Wine Director James Rahn created the cocktail, which blends 360 vodka, F. Meyer Eau-de-vie de Mirabelle (yellow plum), Grand Marnier and of course, bitters. And for a little personalization, the amount of bitters can be adjusted according to your "level of bitterness" surrounding April 15.

Le Percepteur will be on the menu through the end of April at Café Matou.

Do you have a signature tax day cocktail to share? We're listening...

I just go for a cold beer to wipe the sweat off my brow. Lager, preferably.

A negroni seems just about right.
