Author Notes: This cocktail is like a combination of a Last Word, a French 75, and a classic Champagne Cocktail (some classic versions include Cognac). It is closely inspired by a sparkling cocktail from Death & Co. in N.Y.C. that uses Champagne to add fizz to a Last Word. Yellow Chartreuse can be harder to find than Green Chartreuse, and you can use Green Chartreuse instead if you have that—the cocktail will just be a bit stronger and more intensely flavored.fiveandspice
