NEW SERIES: Founder's Favourites - Part 1: The Last Word

by Charly Thieme on 0 Comments

We think it's time for some more cocktail inspiration leading up to the festive season (and that includes Hallowe'en of course 😉)!

Introducing the Founder's Favourites Series where we will post one of our founder Kathy's most beloved cocktails each week. Kicking us off is the Last Word, quite a boozy and tangy but well-balanced drink steeped in history - more on the topic as always from the brilliant Difford's Guide.

Chartreuse is a wonderfully herbal ingredient but it's quite an investment for just one cocktail so you can also buy their mini bottles (here  for example) if you can't or don't want to really do that.

Maraschino (I have been told you pronounce it like Bruschetta, so Maras-kino) is another random ingredient but Difford's shows me there are 225 cocktail recipes so I am sure you'll find a way to use up the bottle!

Ingredients

  • 30ml Brighton Pavilion Strength
  • 20ml green chartreuse
  • 20ml maraschino liqueur
  • 20ml fresh lime juice (we use our "naked" limes leftover from our distillation for some extra sustainability brownie points)

 

How to Make

 

Put your glass in the freezer, ideally a coupe or maybe a martini glass. Add all ingredients to your shaker and shake with lots of ice, it really benefits from the cold shake and dilution. Fine strain (i.e. use a Hawthorne strainer as well as a mesh fine strainer) into your chilled glass. Yum!!

 

PS: In the photo above we have actually used 1.5 x the recipe because we really wanted to use this wonderful glass and because our founder Kathy loves the cocktail so much!

 

Available in 700ml & 350ml Bottles
Brighton Gin is available in regular 700ml bottles, as well as our handy 350ml midi bottle size, perfect for any number of cocktails. And for the perfect finish, why not serve our ginspiring cocktails in our Brighton Gin glasses!
