The Last Word

A sharp, complex cocktail from David Lebovitz's new book, Drinking French.
Servings 1 cocktail


  • 3/4 ounce London dry gin
  • 3/4 ounce green Chartreuse
  • 3/4 ounce maraschino liqueur
  • 3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Lime twist, for garnish


  • Add the gin, Chartreuse, maraschino liqueur, and lime juice to a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and shake until well chilled.
