Recipe by mersaydees
Based on a recipe from The Ultimate Book of Cocktails by Stuart Walton. He says, “The particular year in question was 1928, when Harry Craddock, a barman at the Savoy Hotel in London, created this drink for a party held there on February 29.” Well, let’s have a party February 29, 2012! :)

Do I have to wait 4 more years for another? This was slightly sweet and much to my liking. Took a lot of self-control to stop at one. My favorite martini this week so far. Made for The Wild Bunch for ZWT8 for its trip to Britain.
- 3 tablespoons gin (2 measures)
- 2 teaspoons Grand Marnier (1/2 measure)
- 2 teaspoons red sweet vermouth (1/2 measure)
- 1 dash lemon juice, plus lemon rind
