Last Word

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

The junipery Last Word is an early Prohibition cocktail. Fairly obscure, it has been popping up on classics-focused menus since venerable Seattle bartender Murray Stenson unearthed its recipe from a 1952 edition of Ted Saucier’s Bottoms Up.

  1. Ice
  2. 3/4 ounce gin
  3. 3/4 ounce green Chartreuse
  4. 3/4 ounce maraschino liqueur
  5. 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the remaining ingredients and shake well. Strain into a chilled coupe.
