Leap Year cocktail

One should approach this cocktail slowly like a large, stealthy wild cat stalking the only prey it’s seen for weeks.  Pounce too quickly and you’ll be sorry.  Think of this as a brightly flavored martini, not to be taken lightly; lest you be knocked out until the Leap Year!  It’s very tasty….and forte!
