Leap Year Cocktail

Then why would he say, "The mixture of gin and vermouth gives the Leap Year Cocktail a certain affinity to a Martini, but the addition of Grand Marnier makes this cocktail unique." He also follows Regan's recipe exactly, minus the sweet vermouth.

Leap Year Cocktail

You forgot the vermouth. Regan's recipe has 1/2 ounce sweet vermouth

Agreed. Amer Picon has also changed its formula significantly over the past 30 years, so even if you could get a bottle the recipe wouldn't taste like a traditional Brooklyn cocktail. Torani Amer is a pretty good substitute for the original Amer Picon and is readily available online.
