Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 28, 2008
Friday, February 29th only comes around once every four years--much like the presidential election. From leap year day through Sunday, March 2nd, hop into Town & Country at The Renaissance Mayflower Hotel where Sambonn Lek--legendary bartender and mix-meister creates a cocktail for the bissextile annum.
Lek has reigned as chief concoctologist, part time magician and full time philanthropist for over 30 years at this luxury hotel in downtown Washington DC. That's a lot of days not even counting the years with one extra. And although Lek's menu of 101 Martinis served daily at Town & Country are a lot of choices--like the days of this year--what's one more?
To this end, Lek has created the Jump Ship Martini ($14.95)--a drink with that extra little something, featuring 2 oz Meyer Dark Rum and 1 oz Grand Marnier all served in a chilled Martini glass and garnished with a fresh hint of citrus in the form of orange peel--kind of like a warm sunset in a glass.
There's no better place than the hallowed halls of The Renaissance Mayflower Hotel's Town & Country Washington DC hotel restaurant and bar to spend an extra hour, linger for an extra bit of relaxation and to enjoy that extra day of the year with an extra special cocktail.
Town & Country bar offers the perfect mix of handsome wood tones, comfortable seating, and nightly entertainment to accompany an impressive list of signature martinis, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Town & Country is located at The Mayflower Hotel, 1127 Connecticut Avenue, NW. It is open daily from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. For further information, call 202-347-3000.
