First developed back in the 1920s, the Last Word is a sassy drink concocted by rebels looking to let loose following the end of The Prohibition Era. As such, you can imagine that this gin-based cocktail created quite a stir. Here’s how you can create the perfect Last Word to truly light up your next party.


  • 1 ounce gin
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice

  • Lime wheel
  • Ice


  1. Refrigerate the glasses you intend to use for the cocktail.

  3. Strain the cocktail into the chilled glasses and garnish with cherries and lime wheels.
