3⁄4 oz Gin (Any old Beefeater variant will do)
3⁄8 oz Bénédictine
4 dr Absinthe
3⁄4 oz Lime juice

Build in shaker; add ice, shake until frosty. Double strain into up glass


Wanted a Last Word, didn't have Green Chartreuse. Did a little internet research, and found an interesting suggestion for combining Elderflower liquer and Benedictine as a sub. Added a bit of absinthe for that anise kick.


Just made it up tonight - 4/16/2019
