The Last Word - Consumatorium

The Last Word

Never fear, loyal Consumatorium readers, we are not shutting down. No, The Last Word is a prohibition-era cocktail that was rediscovered and popularized about a decade ago. It’s tasty and tart, and while the first sip is a little overpowering, it goes down very easily after that. The lime juice, while significant, is balanced well by the maraschino and chartreuse. And the gin both adds flavor and turns it into a serious cocktail. It’s very easy to make if you have the ingredients:

  • 1 oz gin (Spring44 Old Tom)
  • 1 oz Green Chartreuse
  • 1 oz Maraschino Liqueur (Luxardo)
  • 1 oz fresh squeezed lime juice

Put a coupe in the freezer and let it get very cold. Mix ingredients in a shaker over ice and shake vigorously (as with any cocktail containing juice). Strain into the glass. This cocktail is officially ungarnished.

I would say that this would be even better in the summer than on a windy winter evening in Colorado. It might go nicely as a complement to Negronis at your BBQ, for example.

  1. Probably my third favorite, maybe second. Manhattan is first and Old Fashioned is second or third. What a complex citrusy drink!
