The Last Word Cocktail

The Last Word Cocktail is a Prohibition-era drink that I recently discovered at a local restaurant. One sip of this gin cocktail and I was in love. But you have to be careful. It can be a really strong drink.

The beautiful green color comes from the fresh squeezed lime and the Green Chartreuse liqueur, which we have used before in the Gin, Sage, and Ginger Beer Cocktail and the Thai One On Tequila Cocktail.

Don’t skimp on the fresh lime. The bottled stuff just isn’t the same.

I like using Plymouth Gin when I have The Last Word Cocktail. I’ve found it’s a good gin for mixed drinks.

The secret to The Last Word Cocktail is to use equal parts of all four ingredients.

You decide how strong you want your drink to be based on the ratio you use. I typically go with 1/2 ounce of each.  Those of you who are daring could bump it up to 1 ounce of each. Or even more if you are really, really brave. I am not.
