Happy Bartender Day - Le dernier mot

Today is “World Bartender Day”, which motivated me to search for a classic cocktail, which is still rather unknown by the general public. Some of those cocktails are still very popular among bartenders, who create their own tasty variations. 

“The Last Word” is definitely one of those cocktails, build around gin and green Chartreuse. The original recipe dates back to the prohibition and was created at the Detroit Athletic Club. Today it’s a popular Bartenders’ cocktail.

This cocktail recipe is easy to recreate at home because it’s an “equal parts” cocktail with gin, green Chartreuse, maraschino liqueur and fresh lime juice.

Of course we create our own variation, switching the Chartreuse for a more artisanal herbal liqueur. And no, it’s not green anymore either 😉

Le dernier mot

3 cl HTK Gin
3 cl Aurian Genepi
3 cl Bols Maraschino Liqueur
3 cl Fresh Lime juice

Shake with lots of ice and double strain in a stylish coupe or wine glass. Add a sprig of thyme.
