Leap Year

February 26, 2015 – The Republic Steakhouse

Leap Year 

3/4 oz. vermouth rosso
1/4 oz. Grand Marnier
1 oz. gin
Dashes lemon juice

Shake well over ice in a shaker. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

First mixed by Harry Craddock, February 29, 1928, at the Savoy Hotel in London.

Plymouth Navy Strength gin, Carpano Antica vermouth rosso. I have come to love how well gin and vermouth rosso play together. The gin’s solid but not too loud juniper bite gets smoothed out by the rosso’s bittersweet herbal tinged fruitiness. The Grand Marnier adds a lovely sweet citrusy note.
