As unusual incidents often do, Leap Day has acted as a catalyst for inverse and strange traditions to evolve. For example, in Ireland, it has become tradition for women to propose to men on 2/29.  Hendrick’s Gin, an agent to the world of the curious, has curated the Code Quantum cocktail recipe, inspired by this rare astronomical occurrence and contrary traditions, to help celebrate this merriment. The Code Quantum’s bold red hue and deep flavors symbolize such a daring, yet romantic gesture.

Ingredients

  • 1 Part fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Part Grenadine
  • 2 fresh thyme sprigs
