February 24, 2020,
New York, U.S.A.

In celebration of the #FSTakeYourTime initiative, Four Seasons Hotel New York invites guests to enjoy the extra day in 2020 with specialty cocktails at Ty Bar, daily discoveries and a treatment at the L. RAPHAEL Beauty Spa. Start Leap Day off with an overnight stay in one of its luxurious suites. Centrally located in Midtown Manhattan, the Hotel is situated steps away from luxury shopping on Madison and Fifth Avenues, Central Park, Broadway shows and world-class museums and galleries. Guests may also select from a choice of fresh juices, signature bowls, savoury dishes and endless bubbles on The Garden’s weekend brunch menu.

Leap Day Inspired Cocktails at Ty Bar

Throughout the weekend of February 29, 2020, guests can pair seasonal bites with two specialty Leap Day cocktails crafted by Cara Maldonado, Director of Beverage.

  • Golden Thyme – Made with Bulleit bourbon, fresh lemon juice and rich honey syrup with thyme, this cocktail is inspired by the Gold Rush cocktail invented at the famed Milk & oneyHHoney bar in London.
  • The 366 – This is a low- ABV cocktail inspired by the Americano cocktail and riposo, the Italian version of siesta. Riposo means rest and it is a part of their culture to have an extended two to four hour break mid-day. The tradition is intended to give workers a moment to slow down and unwind. It is made with Antica Formula vermouth, Bonne Marie strawberry jam, fresh lemon juice, Moët rosé champagne and Angostura bitters.

“Low-ABV cocktails have been popular in Europe for a long time. The 366 cocktail combines the flavours of Champagne, strawberry jam and vermouth,” says Cara Maldonado, Director of Beverage. “Guests can enjoy their version of riposo when they choose this cocktail at Ty Bar."
