When it comes to flavor, the drink with the declarative swagger of a moniker lives up to its name. Made with gin, fresh squeezed lime juice, maraschino liqueur and green Chartreuse, The Last Word is a balance of sweet-and-sour with a robust herbaceous tone.
The Last Word is a prohibition-era drink, which originated at the Detroit Athletic Club and had gotten lost over the decades.
You will love the sharp, pungent drink, and this has a good bite. It’s a great palate cleanser. And it’s perfectly balanced: A little sour, a little sweet, a little pungent. Wonderful with appetizers that leave an aftertaste, helping to cleanse those flavors.
