When a friend gifted me fresh pomelo from his tree, it became a rush to find as many uses for the juice as I could. Its unique flavor (not quite grapefruit, not quite lemon, not quite lime) is well-suited for designing riffs on old favorites.

That’s where this drink comes in. It’s a riff on the Final Ward, which itself is a riff on the Last Word. I rebalanced it to highlight the pomelo and changed the spicy Green Chartreuse for the milder Yellow Chartreuse.


1½ oz Rittenhouse Rye

¾ oz Yellow Chartreuse

¼ oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur

¾ oz Pomelo Juice

2 dashes Orange Bitters


Shake all ingredients with ice. Strain into a chilled Nick and Nora glass (or coupe). Garnish with maraschino cherries.
