Hurricane Tax Free weekend doesn’t cover the essentials

Governor Bob McDonnell has announced that Virginians can save 5 percent on designated Emergency Supplies May 25-31.

That’s good since Tropical Storm Alberto showed up two weeks early.

But the problem with the acceptable items for tax exempt status is that the list does not include the essentials.

Here’s what you really need for a Hurricane:

2 oz light rum
2 oz dark rum
2 oz passion fruit juice
1 oz orange juice
juice of a half a lime
1 Tbsp simple syrup
1 Tbsp grenadine
orange slice and cherry for garnish
Squeeze juice from half a lime into shaker over ice.
Pour the remaining ingredients into the cocktail shaker.
Shake well.
Strain into a hurricane glass.
Garnish with a cherry and an orange slice.

Maybe if the ABC Stores were privatized?
