From the bartender’s corner – The Last Word
This gin based drink originated way back in 1916. In fact, in those days, The Last Word was the costliest cocktail money could buy at 35 cents. This drink hit the heights of popularity twice – once in the 1920s – made popular by Frank Fogarty in the bar Detroit Athletic Club and then again by Murray Stenson in the bar Zig Zag Cafe in Seattle in the 2000s.
This drink is made from gin, green chartreuse, maraschino liqueur and fresh lime juice.
