Last night I dined with my friend Sarah at the bar at Minetta Tavern. We each started with a cocktail -- Sarah a Manhattan, and I The Last Word. Although I often trend towards brown spirits in the colder weather, for some reason, the combination of gin, lime, green Chartreuse and Maraschino hit the spot last night -- refreshing, calming after a busy day, and a light prelude to our dinner.
The Last Word
Fresh lime juice
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled coupe.
