The Perfect Drink For February 29

As we all know, February has twenty-nine days in 2012. This rare occasion should be commemorated with an exquisite and elegant cocktail of the Martini family, invented at London’s Savoy Hotel on Leap Year Day, 1928 by Harry Craddock, an American expatriate bartender who fled the States for Merrie Olde England during Prohibition. According to the Savoy Cocktail Book, this drink has been used to toast more marriage proposals than any other.

A leap year requires four parts gin, one part Grand Marnier, one part sweet vermouth, and a little bit of lemon juice. Stir with ice, strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a twist of lemon.
