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.

Martini cocktails. Ever wanted to feel like 007 ? sipping these martini´s might get you there or atleast make you feel like it.

Shaken NOT stirred ? even tho 007 is a classy and sophisticated caracter, shaking a Martini is usually a wrong way to do it, if you ask me. The right way to make Martini cocktails is almost always to stir them, but that said, if you got class like 007, it can always be argued.

If you’re sipping one of these fantastic martini styled cocktails, provided below, I hope you get the feeling of being as classy as 007 is. If not – then I’m very confident that, you’ll like the delicious martini cocktails that I made.
