 Often mistakenly pronounced as the Final Word, the Final Ward is a play off the Last Word, named by it’s creator and Death & Co alum Phil Ward.  Instead of gin, the cocktail is created with whiskey and trades lime for lemon juice.  It’s a fantastic alternative to the Last Word. 


3/4 oz Bulleit Rye Whiskey
3/4 oz Green Chartreuse
3/4 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
