Ever get in those conversations that start off well and with good intentions, then stagger into the realm of punchy, sarcasm, or worse? And you just gotta get the last word in... You know what I'm talking about, right?
I remember back when Elian was in the news. Yes, he's on a first name basis. And if you don't know who he is or how Miami was basically on lock-down for a week back when Janet Reno was stirring the pot, then you need to do some Wiki reading!
Anyhow, I bring that up because I got in one of the most heated, contentious conversations, disguised as a screaming match. It was me and David. Both of us, screaming, animated, hands flailing, faces red...you get the picture.
If you should ever find yourself in a moment like that and you need an edge to win the war of diatribes, my suggestion is this biting little cocktail called the Last Word. Enjoy!!
3/4 oz. gin
3/4 oz. green Chartreuse
3/4 oz. maraschino liqueur
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
Tools: shaker, strainer
Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled glass.
