Review:

The Last Word is classically made with gin, maraschino, Chartreuse and lime juice. In this riff, whiskey replaces the gin, and Mr Ward switches citrus fruits from lime to lemon.

History:

Perhaps the best-known riff on the classic Last Word, it was created in 2007 by Phil Ward at Death & Co., New York City, USA.
