A variation on the classic cocktail, Last Word.

The idea for this drink came about from wondering how I could make a Last Word style cocktail without the citrus. The solution for which was subbing in Vermouth. From there the complimentary flavors of Mr Black & Licor 43 accompanied by the hint of Coconut and mouth feel from the fat washed Gin create a delicious drinking experience. The addition of the dehydrated blood orange wheel allows the drink to evolve over time.



 22.50 ml Mr Black
 22.50 ml Coconut fat washed Gin (London dry)
 22.50 ml Dolin Dry Vermouth
 22.50 ml Licor 43
