Thoughts & Words
If you aren't yet aware, we're huge fans of the Last Word and its whiskey-based cousin, the Final Ward. But today we wanted to add a bit of bitterness to the mix. We left out the Green Chartreuse and replaced it with equals parts Cynar and Fernet. The result was a great balance of sour, sweet, and bitterness to round it out.
3/4 oz high proof rye whiskey
3/4 oz Luxardo Maraschino liqueur
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
1/3 oz Fernet-Branca
1/3 oz Cynar
Combine all ingredients in shaker filled with ice, shake for 15 seconds. Strain into chilled cocktail glass.
