Free up yourself!
Let your hair down forget about work for two days.
It's okay the boss won't mind.
If you have the good fortune to live in a country that places high value on the festival known as Carnival then you no doubt already know that this is the last hurrah before the austere and solemn occasion of Lenten prayer and fasting.
The debauchery though questionable is entirely legal.
Carnival is not complete without an inebriating drink of some sort and this one makes use of one of my favourite Angostura cocktails. You'll need a local variety of tangerines called portugals but feel free to substitute with tangerine or mandarin juice sweetened to your taste.
