  • Prefer 1/2 or 3/4 Mezcal, 1/2 GC, and barspoon Lux. A nice Last Word riff.
  • Delicious sour, top notch - great replacement for a Margarita.
  • Delicious. The savory notes from the celery bitters add a dimension I didn't know I needed in my Last Word.

Curated this slightly - removed History, which seems like it was copied verbatim from the book. Thanks,  Zachary
