  • Reduced St Germain to 3/4, increased lemon to 1 oz (prefer a more tart drink). Great “Word” variation!
  • Love the Gin-Chartreuse-St. Germain combo. Great boozy summer drink. This and the Lumière have become our new favorites. (I went a bit heavy on the lemon.) — ★★★★★
  • What I actually want when I think I want a Last Word. Make with 1-1¼ lemon as suggested in the comments. — ★★★★★
  • Too much lemon cut back or eliminate — ★★★
  • Nice cocktails, but a bit sweet as written. 1 oz of lemon would be balance sweet; 1 1/4 oz is nicely sour. — ★★★★

A nice, refreshing summery cocktail. A bit more lemon takes the sweet edge off for those that prefer a tarter balance. 1 1/4 oz is nicely tart. 1 oz would probably be popular.
