You Dumped Him/Her/Them: The Last Word

1 oz [30 ml] gin
1 oz [30 ml] green chartreuse
1 oz [30 ml] freshly squeezed lime juice
1 oz [30 ml] maraschino liqueur
Ice cubes
1 fresh mint leaf

Serves 1

This classic cocktail has not only the best name but also one of the simplest preparations. Regardless of who said what, you can rest assured that you’re getting the last word with this drink. If you don’t love gin, try substituting your favorite spirit. This drink should be all about you. For the Maraschino liqueur, we like Luxardo.

Chill a coupe glass by filling it with ice water, and set aside. Take out your shaking tins, and add all the liquid ingredients to the larger one.

Throw in 5 to 7 ice cubes and shake your anger out at your ex for as long as you need (but at least for 30 seconds.)

After you separate the tins, pop the Hawthorne strainer over the one with the liquid. Empty the now-cold coupe glass and with one hand, hold your small chinois strainer over the glass while you pour the cocktail into it.

The Green Ghost cocktail

So, you like a gin and tonic but want something a bit more interesting?

First appearing in the 1937 Cafe Royal cocktail book, this is quite a mystery of a drink attributed to a Mr J.B. Hurrel. It’s one of those rare Gin drinks which really needs a good shake in order to be palatable, adds a nice amount of icy water to the potent ingredients. Don’t believe me about the potency? Here’s the recipe.


2 ounces Gin

½ ounce Green Chartreuse

½ ounce fresh lime juice (Equivalent to 1 lime).

Yup, not for the uninitiated who believe Smirnoff ice to be strong. In terms of decoration don’t bother. I love the colour of this drink, and anything on the top would detract from that in my opinion. If you add anything, make it a clean piece of twisted lime peel, just don’t go mad with sticks (or god forbid, an umbrella). Put it in a lovely clean glass and it’ll show itself off just fine. It should impress those who like both strong and distinctive flavour as well as beauty in a drink, just remember that long shake! (Yes the Gin will bruise. That’s fine, it works.)

In terms of Gin choice make sure it’s not too brash if you don’t know the persons favorite brand. I’d recommend Plymouth for most people because even I can drink that straight. It’s the main ingredient and will totally alter the entire affair. Essentially, if you enjoy any brand in a Gin and tonic it should be fine here. I believe that’s the official rule, it’s certainly mine. Enjoy!
