Tax time got you down?

- April 26th, 2011

If tax season has you feeling low, a mixologist at the Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island, located on the ocean in northeast Florida, has developed a drink sure to take you from blue to … green?

The aptly named Money Maker was developed by Mike Bell, the Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island’s in-house mixologist. Bell enjoys creating different drinks for various social occassions and thought taxpayers could use a little Money Maker this year.

“On Tax Day, you are either celebrating a refund or hoping for better results next year, but in either case you can always use a little relief,” he said.

To create, combine 1 1/4 ounce pear vodka, 1/2 ounce Midori and freshly squeezed lemon juice with ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake and pour the liquid into a rocks glass. Garnish with a lime twist around a slice of lemon.
