Last Word

Last Word cocktail

Type: Cocktail

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.

Dark and Stormy

The Dark and Stormy cocktail is simple, with only three ingredients, but getting the right measures of each is crucial.

A popular cocktail using dark rum, which is key to the Dark and Stormy’s rich flavour and deep colour. Using ginger beer (not ginger ale) gives the cocktail its intense ginger flavour; you want it to be brewed and fermented but non-alcoholic.

Make sure the lime juice is freshly squeezed - avoid bottled lime juice as they often have added preservatives and other chemicals and lack the freshness of squeezed juice.
