Last Word

Last Word cocktail with maraschino and green Chartreuse

This trendy little jewel is actually a relic of the Roaring 20s. It languished in obscurity until Seattle bartender Murray Stenson re-discovered it in the mid-00s, and these days it’s a rare cocktail menu that doesn’t include it.

The hype is entirely justified; the drink is piquant and complex, the ratio is easy to remember, and it makes healthy use of a couple of wonderful liqueurs too often relegated to the back of the cabinet.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass – the prettier the glass, the better it tastes. Really!

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
