I’ll have the last word, please

Everyone might like to have the last word, but for Prohibition-era patrons of the Detroit Athletic Club, it had a very special meaning. The Last Word cocktail has resurfaced recently, and it sure is worth digging out of the mothballs.

Here it is:

The Last Word
3/4 oz gin
3/4 oz green Chartreuse
3/4 oz Maraschino liqueur
3/4 oz lime juice

Shake together with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Sit back, sip and savor.
