Last Word

‘Last Word’

One of my favourite cocktails is the Last Word! The last word is prohibition-era gin-based cocktail. Its also uses Chartreuse. …it is named after the monks’ Grande Chartreuse monastery, located in the Chartreuse Mountains in the general region of Grenoble in France. The liqueur is produced in their distillery in the nearby town of Voiron (Isère). It is composed of distilled alcohol aged with 130 herbs, plants and flowers (@wikipedia)

The only variation I used from the classic was to use some Aquafaba to create some foam. What is Aquafaba? It’s is the liquid that tinned chickpeas sit in.

To create this simple deliciousness, I used:
30ml Green @chartreuse_australia
30ml @thebotanistgin
30ml Maraschino liqueur
30ml Lime juice
30ml Aquafaba .

Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake very vigorously with ice until the foam is created

Double strain into your favourite cocktail glass and wait for the foam to settle
