One of our favorite Prohibtion-era cocktails, The Last Word was first served at the Detroit Athletic Club around 1916, just before the dark days of American temperance. It made its way to NYC, and as they say if you can make it there… well… that’s not always the case. Though its recipe was published in Ted Saucier’s cocktail book, “Bottoms Up?” in 1951, it had largely fallen out of favor in a post-WWII United States of cocktailing, and you’d be hard pressed to meet a bartender in the 1960s who was making it.

Rediscovered in 2004 by Murray Stenson, of Seattle’s Zig Zag Club, when he came across a copy of “Bottoms Up!” it quickly became a standard in the craft cocktail scene, with good reason. It’s easy to make, as it is an ethereal blend of equal parts Gin, Chartreuse, and Maraschino liqueur accented with the brightness of fresh lime, this is an easily quaffable cocktail that is sure to be a hit at your next house party!

¾ oz Leopold Brothers Navy Strength Gin
¾ oz Leopold Brothers Maraschino Liqueur
¾ oz Chartreuse Verte
¾ oz Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice (not included in this cocktail kit)
