Today is Tax Day and to us that means one thing...cocktails. If there is one day out of the year that deserves its own special cocktails, it's Tax Day.  

Whether you've already sent off your hard-earned cash, you're waiting until the last minute to file or you're delaying the pain as long as possible, these three cocktails should help ease the sting.

So crank out those taxes, then unwind with one of these tax-themed drinks.

The IRS Blues Martini

The Cityscape Bar in Chicago sells a blue lemonade vodka martini for $4.15 on Tax Day as part of a specially priced menu to east the pain of paying taxes. Also on the menu: an “In the Red” Bloody Mary and an “In the Black” Russian.

The Pain Killer

This drink truly lives up to its name. If it's pain you need to kill, this cocktail has got you covered.
