“The Last Word”
Description from Sarah aka iamhydrogen: Continuation on today's cocktail theme in celebration of summer & the long weekend!
This is a bit of an obscure one, but it's becoming pretty popular here on the West Coast. I love it - it's like drinking freshly mowed grass.
Chartreuse is an herbal liquor made by monks in the Chartreuse Mountains of France. The color chartreuse gets its name from the liqueur - not the other way around!
Maraschino is exactly what it sounds like: liqueur made from Marasca cherries, otherwise known as maraschino cherries. It's made with the pits as well as the fruit; it smells like cherries but tastes more like bitter almond.
3/4 oz. dry gin
3/4 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
3/4 oz. green Chartreuse
3/4 oz. maraschino liqueur
Shake all ingredients over ice & strain into a cocktail glass.
