About this Cocktail

When one of my old coworkers and his friends stopped by Our Fathers for drinks, for his last round, he requested something strange; I replied by asking "How strange? What do you think this is -- Drink or something? ...Like a 'purple unicorn tango-ing with a turtle' strange?" That gave him pause, and then he answered, "Yes, I want that drink!" I wandered off for a second to think, and what popped into my head was beginning with the Ramos Gin Fizz, taking out the gin, citrus, and sugar syrup, and replacing it with a Last Word. Given that he loved both drinks on their own, he was rather pleased and declared that this lived up to the name.

  • 1 oz Bully Boy Gin
  • 1 oz Green Chartreuse
  • 1 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
  • 1 oz Lime Juice
  • 1 1/2 oz Heavy Cream
  • 1 Egg White
  • 4-5 drop Orange Blossom Water

Shake once without ice and once with ice, strain into a tall glass with 3-4 oz soda water, and garnish with an orange twist. Reducing the four "1 oz" ingredients to 3/4 oz would work too to make a less boozy drink.

    I love a good Last Word Fizz!

    I did a Diamond Fizz version with sparkling wine that worked pretty well, but this is the first time I took it in a New Orleans Fizz direction.
