Toast the IRS with the Ferent Your Troubles Cocktails.

The good news is tax season is over for most of us. But if you had to part with your hard earned money, there’s nothing like a stiff drink to make sense of those numbers that didn’t add up in your favor. New York City’s Monarch Rooftop wants to help ease your sorrow. All day on Monday April 18, the bar perched 18 floors above Midtown Manhattan is offering the Fernet Your Troubles Cocktail for $11. The mixed drink is a refreshing and light combination of citrus and rhubard. And if you can’t make it West of LI this tax day, Monarch’s executive mixologist, Genese DeBeaux, shared the recipe with Pulse. Go ahead, have a cocktail. It’s tax day.
