  • Made the first time with Letherbee 2016 Vernal gin, the second time with Sipsmith gin. We preferred the latter which allowed the rosemary flavor to shine. — ★★★★★

Updated to authentic recipe: removed Angostura Orange bitters and added instructions to ignite Green Chartreuse.

This seems to be a nice twist on the Last Word. Made a couple of last night and loved how the Chartreuse lights beautifully. I did feel the second sprig of Rosemary a bit overkill.
