A riff on the classic Last Word cocktail substituting Irish whiskey for gin. Named after Frank Fogarty, a vaudeville performer known as The Dublin Minstrel. Fogarty is referenced in Ted Saucier's 1951 Bottoms Up! book as introducing the Last Word to the Detroit Athletic Club around 1920 and is possibly who the Last Word was originally named after.
Created by yours truly on 12th February 2015 at the Cabinet Room in London, England. Inspired by the Last Word entry in Ted Saucier's 1951 Bottoms Up book.
