What To Drink: A Scarlet Petticoat. This cocktail, created by the cracked geniuses at Hendrick's, the Scottish gin distillery, makes for the perfect dinner accompaniment. The name alludes to Celtic lore, and the tradition of marriage-seeking women wearing red to alert potential suitors. On Leap Day, in Ireland, it was acceptable for a woman to propose to a man. Drop some knowledge when you're ordering. Here's the recipe if you're mixing one yourself:

1  1/2 parts Hendrick's Gin
3/4 parts fresh Blood Orange juice
1/2 part Lillet Rouge
1/4 part Creme de Cassis
1 slice of Cucumber
