On the topic of comfort drinks, I recently stumbled upon what just may have to be one of my favorite cocktail recipes ever. The Final Ward, created by Death and Co.’s Phil Ward has everything I look for in a drink, most namely whiskey. The drink is delicious, complex, and to my surprise none of the very strong flavors of the individual liquors overpower one another. This may even tickle my fancy just a little bit more than its predecessor, The Last Word. Simply amazing.
3/4oz. Maraschino (I used Luxardo)
3/4oz. Green Chartreuse
3/4oz. Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
3/4oz. Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed)
