The Story Behind The Last Word
The Negroni gets a lot of attention as everyone’s favorite equal-parts cocktail. If you prefer a gin drink that’s more herbal and refreshing, however, consider the Last Word. It’s made with gin, green Chartreuse, and fresh lime, plus Maraschino liqueur for a touch of sweetness.
This Prohibition-era cocktail is easy to make since, like the Negroni, all ingredients are added in equal proportion. This also makes it a great option to batch for larger groups.
