The Last Word is one of those old cocktails from the 30s that you find on a drink menu. It tells you, “We’re not kidding around here! This drink has gin mixed with green Chartreuse, maraschino liqueur, and lime juice.
We based ours on this classic but changed up some ingredients too: our version uses American Single Malt liquor (instead of Scotch) because it’s “smooth yet strong.”
This beverage mixes with Tattersall Amaro from Minneapolis, and yellow Chartreuse. It’s also juiced with a splash of Meyer lemons, which are more savory than regular lemons and blends well with the single malt whiskey. This drink will take your taste buds on a wild ride!
Mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker.
Shake well until combined.
Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with Meyer lemon curl.
