Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Last Word

April 11, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

Hey there!

Today's cocktail is a classic from the prohibition era. The Last Word is simple and straightforward, it calls for equal parts of gin, green Chartreuse, Maraschino liqueur and fresh lime juice. I would describe this as tart, and sophisticated. Variations of this cocktail exist, and we've done one previously called, the Paper Plane which uses Bourbon instead of Gin. We hope you enjoy!
