3⁄4 oz Pisco
3⁄4 oz Cognac
3⁄4 oz Lemon juice
3⁄4 oz Simple syrup

Shake, strain, up.


1. Shellenberger attempted to aromatize his Pisco by redistilling it with mistelle (unfermeted grape juice); perhaps a rinse of Pineau des Charentes, or a muddled grape or two, could produce a similar aroma. 2. An extra-aged grape spirit mingling with an unaged one; geddit?

  • Less simple syrup next time -- a little too sweet. I like it, though.
  • One of the best Last Word variations. I love it with a bit of agave instead of simple syrup Update: made again with simple syrup, not so good, way too sweet.
  • Made with unexceptional spirits, but still turned out nice. — ★★★★★
