Last Word

A gin-based cocktail that was listed on the menu of the Detroit Athletic Club in 1916. It fell out of favour but enjoyed a renewed popularity after being rediscovered by the bartender Murray Stenson in 2004 during his tenure at the Zig Zag Café.

The Last Word is made up of equal amounts of gin, green Chartreuse, maraschino liqueur and freshly pressed lime juice and has a pretty pale green hue. It’s a sharp, pungent drink and a good palate cleanser.

Clover Club

Snowball

Traditionally drunk at Christmas time, the Snowball was particularly popular in the 1970s, but made a comeback in 2012 after Nigella Lawson admitted to being partial to one.

A Snowball is a mixture of Advocaat and lemonade and as with so many cocktails, there are a variety of differing recipes. The addition of gin is a warming surprise and really adds to the flavour. Buying a shop bought commercial version of Advocaat is fine, making it yourself really isn’t necessary.
