THE LAST WORD ¾ oz. Maraschino liqueur ¾ oz. green chartreuse ¾ oz. gin ¾ oz. fresh lime juice Marasca cherry for garnish Combine ingredients and shake in standard shaker. Serve in coupe and garnish with a cherry. A mix of equal parts lime juice, maraschino liqueur, green chartreuse, and gin, this Prohibition-era cocktail may be lesser known than other classic libations, but it's a go-to for Sable Kitchen & Bar mixologist Mike Ryan. "It's boozy and refreshing at the same time," says the veteran, who brings a trained chef's palate to his cocktails (Ryan was formerly a sous at Moto). And though Ryan admits, "It's a drink that can be made well by pretty much anybody," he attests that with subtle adjustments—a little more dilution, a bit longer shake— a skilled bartender can take it to the next level, achieving the perfect balance of acidity and sweetness. Simply put, says Ryan, "It's a good, bold, bracing cocktail before dinner." 505 N.
