Last Word

A recipe created in 1915, before America's cocktail lovers found themselves in the throes of Prohibition, The Last Word was served at the Detroit Athletic Club by a bartender named Frank Fogarty and continues to be one of the most enduring and successful drinks of the era. By the time World War II happened, it had mostly fallen out of favor, continuing to be cited in some mid-century cocktail books but not being called for at many bars, but then Murray Stenson of Seattle's Zig Zag Café revived the recipe for his patrons, and the drink quickly regained its place among classic forms that invite modification and improvisation. Equal parts gin, green chartreuse, Luxardo Maraschino liqueur, and fresh lime juice, this balance beauty will delight drinkers of all stripes.


¾ oz London Dry Gin

¾ oz Green Chartreuse

¾ oz Lime Juice

¾ oz Luxardo Maraschino


Shake/Strain into Coupe. No Garnish.
