{friday cocktail: the last word}

Green Chartreuse liqueur, a herbal green hued liqueur, has always been a favorite after dinner drink for Chris, but we have never stocked it in our bar since I haven't felt there were enough recipes I would actually make with it.   Recently, I gave in purchased a bottle and we spent a Friday evening last week with friends trying out different cocktail recipes.  One of my new favorites is The Last Word which is another cocktail that uses only 4 ingredients each with the exact same proportion just like last week's cocktail recipe.  The Last Word is very similar in taste to an Aviation, but the green chartreuse gives it a really interesting herbal flavor  as well as an electric green hue.
