This sweet but punchy cocktail is a classic that combines gin, maraschino liqueur, Chartreuse and lime juice for a perky palate pleaser.

If you’re not familiar with Chartreuse, you should definitely try it out. It has a strong herbal taste that makes it very distinct and livens up the sweet/sour combo we’re so used to.

The Last Word Cocktail

The Last Word is a pre-Prohibition drink that was buried for many years, but when finally unearthed again in the early 2000s, it came back with a bang.

Everyone loved it! Of course. It’s delicious.

You’ll need Chartreuse for this drink, which is a French liqueur available in a green and yellow version. They differ slightly in taste and in alcohol volume.

It is made with distilled alcohol that is aged with 130 herbs, plants and flowers. Yes, it’s powerful!

I use the green version. You can use either one, really. It’s a personal preference.

If you don’t know where to get Chartreuse, I can recommend Saucey, which delivers in major cities, or ships outside of those cities. You can buy Chartreuse in a 375ml bottle, which will be easier to consume than a 750ml.

»Have you heard about Saucey? They deliver your online alcohol order with 2-hour or 2-day shipping in 20 major cities around the US. They have a HUGE selection. No minimums and free delivery!
