An ingredient in my favorite cocktail, the Last Word, that is becoming increasingly difficult to find. Thanks, Drizly!
Chartreuse Green Liqueur

- Herbal & Spice Liqueur
Green Chartreuse is the only liqueur in the world with a completely natural green color. It is powerful and unique. Only two Chartreuse monks know the identity of the 130 plants, how to blend them and how to distill them into this world famous liqueur. They are also the only ones who know which plants they have to macerate to produce the natural green and yellow colors. And they alone supervise the slow ageing in oak casks.View all products by ChartreuseCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

A gift from the liquor Gods. Our favorite cocktail is “The Last Word.” If you’re buying the Green Chartreuse then you gotta buy the rest of the ingredients. It’s legendary.

The ultimate in herbal complexity. Unique in smell and taste. Can add sophistication to many cocktails, but handle its power with care. Pour over ice and sip while contemplating life.

The Green Chartreuse gives this cocktail a wonderful herby black licorice flavor that coats the palate and the sweet vermouth pulls in a matching warm sweetness. Depending on the kind of Irish Whiskey you use it'll either add more sweetness (blends) or an earthy aspect (single malts/pot still) that adds another dimension to the cocktail, giving it a bit more depth.
The Last Word
First created in the Prohibition era, the Last Word's simple recipe of equal parts Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, Green Chartreuse, Junipero Gin and fresh lime juice belies the subtlety of this sweet-tart-herbal creation. Two men are credited with this cocktail's fame - its creator, vaudevillian Fred Fogarty, who allegedly first combined the four ingredients at the Detroit Athletic Club in 1921, and Seattle bartender Murray Stetson, who revived the Last Word at the Zig Zag Café in the early 2000s.
Herbaceous green chartreuse and rich chocolate is an unexpected but delightful combination that can never go wrong. The classic version of this drink with milk or dark hot chocolate is an apres-ski favorite in the French and Swiss Alps. We threw in our own little twist and opted for white chocolate resulting in a sweeter more sugary mixture.
