Angelica's Last Word
Pairs With: Gin + Green Chartreuse
Flavor Profile: Celery + Toasted Black Peppercorn + Lime
This cocktail is one for the cocktail enthusiast, someone who seeks out complex flavors and originality.
We've wanted to do a cocktail featuring celery for a while because of the fresh and bright flavor this often unappreciated vegetable offers. For some reason Green Chartreuse stood out as something that could work well, and since the Last Word is easily one of our top three classic cocktails, our minds went to that classic template. To make this cocktail more interesting we decided to flip out the classic maraschino component of the Last Word with celery juice and a toasted black pepper syrup.
We named this one Angelica's Last Word as a nod to wild celery - Angelica.
What happens when you drink this cocktail is first a hit of herbaceous Green Chartreuse, one of the most enjoyable reasons for sipping on a Last Word. Next you'll find the gin and lime crosses your palate offering first some refreshment then some more botanicals. At the end of your sip you'll taste celery, distinct and forward, before detecting a subtle spice from the toasted black pepper.
Your true cocktail awaits.
