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?

  • 2 oz. Beefeater gin
  • 3/4 oz. rich simple syrup
  • 3/4 oz. lime juice
  • Half dropper Bittermens hellfire
  • Half dropper Regans orange bitters
  • Chartreuse rinse

Rinse cocktail glass with chartreuse. Combine everything else in a shaker and shake vigorously. Double strain. No garnish.

    Want. How about...The Bee Sting?

    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.)
