The last word – 5 twists on the classic cocktail

The last word – an IBA official cocktail listed under the “The unforgettables” category and a prohibition era cocktail.

First served at the Detroit Athletic Club, in 1915. The Last Word was created just before the start of the prohibition. Consisting of four ingredients measured in equal parts. Gin, freshly squeezed lime juice, green chartreuse and maraschino. It’s a super delicious and easy cocktail, I can recommend to try the orginal recipe, and if you feel like taking it to a new level, I have provided some tasty twists on the original recipe, that you should give a try. Below you’ll find five of my twist on the last word cocktail.

Old fashioned cocktail – 5 versions you have to try

Old fashioned cocktail

Old fashioned cocktail – on the IBA official cocktails list, under the category “The unforgettables”. It’s a template I enjoy expirimenting with, and is orignally made with whiskey or bourbon. You can use any type of base spirit of choice and sweetener or modifyer, which will give you endless choice, so you get the flavour profile you like and prefer.

For my Old fashioned recipes I prefer to use 60 ml / 6 cl of spirit to 10 – 15 ml / 1 – 1,5 cl of modifyer / sweetener and a few drops of bitters, stirred over ice to perfectly diluted.

In this post I have displayed five different Old fashioned styled serves, to show that there are many ways to make an Old fashioned.
