Leap Year Cocktail

Leap Year Cocktail. (Photo from 12 Bottle Bar).
If you imbibe, perhaps on this Leap Year Day you would like to try this special cocktail. In 1928, the Leap Year Cocktail was created at the Savoy Hotel in London, and it is said to have been " responsible for more proposals than any other cocktail ever mixed.”

Here's the recipe:  
2 oz gin
0.5 oz Grand Marnier 
0.5 oz  sweet vermouth
1 Dash (tsp) of Lemon Juice

Add ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.  Shake and strain into glass.  Garnish with a lemon twist.

Here's a video from YouTube illustrating mixing of this cocktail.
