The cocktail was created in the early 1920s in Detroit, where it was first served at the Detroit Athletic Club. Thank you Detroit.
The Last Word
0.75 fl. oz. Gin
0.75 fl. oz. Green Chartreuse
0.75 fl. oz. Maraschino Liqueur
0.75 fl. oz. Fresh Lime Juice
Shake until very cold; strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Soooo good, no need for a garnish.
ps. with 3/4 ingredients being booze, this drink is no lightweight, but in my opinion pretty light on the palette and very drinkable.
