Two Thursdays ago, I was perusing the Kindred Cocktails database, and I began searching for Violet Hour recipes that never made it into their new book. There, I landed upon the 2009 Tax the Daisy as a curious shaken straight spirits gin drink. In the glass, the Tax the Daisy opened up with orange, clove, and allspice aromas. Next, caramel and orange notes on the sip led into root beer and pine flavors on the swallow.
