One of our favourite cocktails around here is The Last Word. It’s delicious, easy to drink, and will leave you wanting more. Interestingly, it’s actually a pre-prohibition cocktail first served in 1915, at the Detroit Athletic Club, which fell out of favour post World War 2, but has made a come back and is now truly a staple. It’s sweet, it’s sour, and best of all it has gin in it so it’s bound to be a winner in our books.

We like to serve ours up in a nice coupe glass, such as these vintage coupes below.


3/4 oz. gin (we used Tanqueray)

3/4 oz. green Chartreuse

3/4 oz. maraschino liqueur

3/4 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice

Add gin, green Charteuse, maraschino liqueur, and freshly squeezed lime juice into a shaker with ice. Shake until well chilled.

Strain into a chilled coupe glass.
