The Last Word Cocktail is a pre-prohibition cocktail that received a revival during the early 2000s due to a bar called the Zig Zag placing it on their menu. This led to a great revival that has this cocktail back into the spotlight. Is it as iconic as a Martini? Nah. But it’s still a really great drink that you should try out.

The Last Word originally was created at the Detroit Athletic club during the 1920s before obviously disappearing due to prohibition. In the 1950s it reappeared in a cocktail book called Bottoms Up – Find here on Amazon*

Notes on Ingredients:

This drink uses Green Chartreuse, a nice herbal liqueur that has roughly 130 different herbs and spices that create a unique flavor. It is made in France by Monks and is a little on the pricey side. (Although it’s worth it.)
