Mezcal Last Word

About this Cocktail

This cocktail is a slight twist on the traditional Last Word (gin, green chartreuse, maraschino liqueur, and lime juice). It replaces the gin with Mezcal, giving it a nice hint of smoke. I don't think it has its own name. Perhaps it could be Palabra Ultima.

  • 1 oz. Mezcal ( I like Del Maguey Vida for mixing.)
  • 1 oz. Green Chartreuse
  • 1 oz. Maraschino liqueur (Luxardo)
  • 1oz. Lime juice

Shake all ingredients and strain into a coup. No garnish.

    I definitely like Palabra Ultima

    I really enjoyed this tonight. Next time I think I would dial back the marachino a bit and increase the Mezcal.

    One of my absolute favorites. We had it on the menu last year and just called it the Mezcal Last Word. Very popular. We make ours with slightly more Vida: 1/.75/.75/.75
  • The Rakish Bon Vivant
    We call it the Closing Argument
