Let's start with the 24:75. That's a cocktail concocted from Beefeater 24, Sencha tea syrup (recipe follows), lemon juice and champagne. Beefeater 24 is a new gin infused with two types of rare tea. It's only in limited markets right now, and Miami is one of them -- The Florida Room introduced locals to it with a launch party on September 28. The suggested retail price is $28.99 for 750ML and $32.99 for 1L.
So that's the 24:75. The 12:00 signifies midnight, the lift-off a combination of the drink, the festive evening, and the soaring of spirits in looking forward to a grand and brand new year. Hope you all have one.
Keep going for the 24:75 recipe.
2/3 Part Beefeater 24
2/3 Part Sencha Tea Syrup

(Sencha is a grassy green tea -- the most popular in Japan. To make the Sencha tea syrup, prepare strong Sencha tea, and mix equal parts of it with sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool.)
