milkmade flavor of the day: Leap Year Cocktail
lemon and Grand-Marnier ice cream with a shot of gin
Happy Leap Day! We turned the Leap Year Cocktail into ice cream today, of course drowning a scoop in more Grand Marnier.
The Leap Year cocktail was invented by Henry Craddock in 1928 for the Leap Year celebrations held at London’s Savoy Hotel. Allegedly, it’s said to have been responsible for more marriage proposals than any other cocktail ever mixed. Check out Slate’s profile on the drink.
Meatloaf is just my kind of meal - hearty and delicious, but as I don’t like ground beef I would never order it out anywhere. I decided that I would make my own at home using ground turkey instead, wrapped it in bacon (because everything is better with bacon) and then glazed it very lightly with ketchup and mustard because I wanted to have some gravy with it. As it was just for me I made a little individual loaf but by the end I was SO FULL, this easily could have served two people, but you know, sometimes being greedy is just good. I served it with broccoli potato mash which is awesome.
