About this Cocktail

This is a variation on a gin gimlet with a little Last Word and some hellfire thrown in for good measure. The spice is a nice contrast.

Name coming... Suggestions?

  • Half dropper Bittermens hellfire

    Winner! Made first with honey syrup, second with rich simple, which was better.

    Nice one! A regular last word with a dropper of hellfire doesn't suck either.

    Thanks! And my next Last Word will have some fire. (I find myself putting it every sour I make lately.)
