Our Lady of the Harbor
This twist on the Last Word substitutes Irish whiskey for the traditional gin, and uses a pineapple syrup (simply a mix of pineapple juice and sugar) in place of maraschino liqueur. The Chartreuse, despite being the smallest component in the mix, still asserts its herbal self, as Chartreuse tends to. Equally boozy, fruity and vegetal, the cocktail tastes like a whiskey sour that went to a Friday night garden party and decided to let loose a little.
