Royal Leap Year

Royal Leap Year

We don't get them that often so for 2024 I did a twist on the classic cocktail the "Leap Year".

Subbed Gin for Whiskey and I added my Peachy Queen and created...🎺

👑the ROYAL LEAP YEAR

Smooth and delish.

Make one to celebrate the extra day we get this year!

Recipe:

  • 2 ounces a smooth Bourbon
  • 1 bar spoon of Laura Ann’s PEACHY QUEEN jam
  • .5 ounce sweet vermouth (I prefer Antica Formula for this drink)
  • .5ounce Grand Marnier liqueur 
  • A SQUEEZE of fresh lemon juice (U usually squeeze a 1/4 of a lemon into my shaker) - about 1/4 c max but start with 2 tablespoons and add more to taste.

 

Put all that into a shaker with ice and SHAKE until well chilled.

 

STRAIN into a coupe and garnish with a lemon peel or a tiny slice. (I would say Peach if it wasn’t February!)

 

HAPPY LEAP YEAR.
