Author Notes: Originally created at the Detroit athletic club in the 1920s, a Last Word, equal parts gin, lime, maraschino liqueur, and chartreuse, is perfectly suited for rotgut bathtub gin, which is almost certainly what was used in the original cocktail. Bold, spicy, vegetal and tart, the Last Word has become a favorite amongst cocktail enthusiasts and is appropriately named for both its relatively high alcohol content and the intensity of its flavor. This cocktail is a closer.Erik Lombardo
