The Last Word

Quick Facts

Cocktail History

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.


Cocktail Preparation

Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake with ice for 20-30 seconds or until chilled. Strain into a cocktail coupe and garnish with a cherry as an option. Enjoy!
