The Last Word
The first appearance of the Last Word cocktail was in Ted Saucier’s 1951 cocktail book Bottom’s Up! However, this gin-based prohibition-era cocktail was originally served 30 years earlier at the Detroit Athletic Club. It eventually fizzled out of the cocktail world until it regained popularity when it was rediscovered by a bartender named Murray Stenson in 2004 out of Seattle. You might not always get the last word in every conversation, but you can still enjoy this drink.
