Our comment:

This pink/rust red drink is bittersweet with underlying bourbon character and lemon zestiness.

History:

A riff on the classic Last Word created in 2007 by Sam Ross at The Violet Hour, Chicago, USA. He first made this drink with Amaro Nonino Quintessentia and Campari but switched Campari for Aperol soon after creating the drink when he started making it at New York's Milk & Honey.

Sam says "This cocktail is named after the M.I.A. track that was blasting on repeat the summer we worked on the drink."
