A balanced mix of tart and botanical flavors, this cocktail combines fresh lime juice with the complex herbal notes of Green Chartreuse and the sweet, nutty profile of Maraschino liqueur, all underpinned by the crispness of dry gin. The ingredients are equal parts, contributing to its harmony and making it a classic example of the precision required in cocktail crafting. Traditionally served in a cocktail glass, the Last Word is a vibrant, zesty drink with a captivating green hue, embodying both historical charm and contemporary sophistication.

~ Green Chartreuse works the best, Yellow Chartreuse doesn't go as well with the lime. If you're too heavy with the maraschino liqueur the cocktail will have too rich of a taste. Err on the side of using less of it, but it is a necessary ingredient. ~
