FAQ's

ORIGINS_HISTORY

What is the origin of the Ultima Palabra cocktail?

The Ultima Palabra is a variation of the classic cocktail 'Last Word'. While the 'Last Word' originated in the early 20th century at the Detroit Athletic Club, the Ultima Palabra, which translates to 'The Last Word' in Spanish, adapts the recipe by incorporating Mezcal, giving it a unique Mexican twist.

CUSTOMIZATION_IDEAS

What makes the Ultima Palabra cocktail unique compared to other cocktails?

The Ultima Palabra stands out due to its use of Mezcal, which introduces a smoky flavor that is balanced with the sweetness and tanginess from the pineapple and lime juice, respectively. The addition of Green Chartreuse and Maraschino cherry liqueur adds complexity and herbal undertones, making it an exceptional and flavorful cocktail.

NON_ALCOHOLIC_VARIATIONS

Can the Ultima Palabra cocktail be made without alcohol for a non-alcoholic version?

Yes, a non-alcoholic version of the Ultima Palabra can be made by substituting the alcoholic ingredients with non-alcoholic spirits, such as a non-alcoholic mezcal alternative for the smokey flavor, and herbal or fruit syrups in place of the Green Chartreuse and Maraschino cherry liqueur. Adjustments to taste may be necessary to replicate the unique flavors of the original cocktail.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

How should the Ultima Palabra be served to best enjoy its flavors?

The Ultima Palabra is best served cold in a cocktail glass. It is not shaken or stirred to preserve the clarity and distinct layers of flavor. Chilling the glass beforehand can also enhance the drinking experience, allowing the flavors to remain robust and refreshing.
