Until you understand that all lives can't matter until black lives matter, there is is still work to do. During this time we are taking a pause to show support for the fight for equality in America.
The evolution of the world has changed things… It’s changed me. The lessons, the trials and tribulations, all the failures have made this company stronger. And now, in the wake of the world shutting down and the current situation we are all going through, it is time. Time for the return, at the same time the beginning.

Classic Cocktails Every Bartender Should Know: The Last Word

You think the only good things to come out of Detroit are automobiles or maybe even boxers? The Detroit Athletic Club gave us more than just a few jabs and hooks, they gave us the Last Word all the way back in the 1920’s. Later on the drink would migrate to New York and in 1951, the Last Word was first published in Ted Saucier’s cocktail book “Bottoms Up”!

However, the classic drink would all but disappear after World War II and it wasn’t until 2004 when Murray Stenson would bring the drink to the Zig Zag club in Seattle. Stenson stumbled across a 1952 version of Saucier’s book and now we have one of the original pre-prohibition cocktails back in our recipe list.

The Recipe: Last Word

Ingredients:

  • 1 oz – Gin
  • 1 oz – Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 oz – Green Chartreuse
  • 1 oz – Maraschino Liqueur
  • Lime Wheel

Tools and Glassware:

  • Martini or Coupe Glass
  • Mixing Glass
  • Double Strainer

How to prepare the drink:

To get started, take a mixing glass and add all of the ingredients equally one ounce of each. Add ice and shake for 20 seconds. Double strain into a martini (or coupe) glass and server chilled and up. Finish off with a garnish of a thinly sliced lime wheel. That’s it! Simple, easy and classic.
