The Last Word
Pro Contributor

The Last Word was created roughly around the time of Prohibition at The Detroit Athletic Club. It was lost to history until Seattle bar legend Murray Stenson found it in an old cocktail book and began serving them on the menu at The Zig Zag cafe.

It became one of the first rites of passage among craft bartenders and cocktail enthusiasts to know and love a Last Word. We owe it all to Murray and his curiousity!


3/4 oz London Dry Gin

3/4 oz Green Chartreuse

3/4 oz Luxardo Maraschino

3/4 oz Fresh Lime Juice


Shake and strain into a chilled coupe. No garnish necessary.
