tax-day

While punch cards and tape drives seem archaic now, they were a “new dimension” in data processing and tax administration at the time of this IRS educational film, “Right on the Button,” from the late 1960s. 

Excerpted from “Right on the Button.” From the series: Motion Picture Films, ca. 1960 - ca. 1970. Records of the Internal Revenue Service, 1791 - 2006.

Now, go finish those taxes!

Tax Day Drinking: Coconut Zombie Cocktails

Tiki cocktails are coming back in a big way. Don the Beachcomber would be proud of this island-y fresh twist on the classics. Especially on a day like today. Whew! What a push.

Instead of using pineapple juice, we opted to use POM Hula, which is made with a blend of pomegranate and pineapple juices.   

Here’s how it’s done.

Ingredients:

2 oz spiced navy rum

4 oz POM Hula 

1 oz coconut cream

1 oz orange juice

sprig of mint for garnish 

Add all ingredients to a shaker. Shake and strain into a glass (or coconut) over crushed ice. Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg and a sprig of mint. Cheers!
