The Leap Year is a somewhat popular cocktail, at least it's been around for many years (1930's at least) and if not on the tips of tongues, in the back of minds and a well-rounded Martini alternative.

-1/4 oz lemon juice -lemon twist for garnish

-Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
