This cocktail uses a unique liquor from Chile called Träkál, a brandy distilled from apples and pears and flavored with indigenous Patagonian herbs and spices. In a riff on a Last Word I accentuate the spirit's herbal and lightly sweet character with Italian maraschino, French Chartreuse, and limon omani, our dried Persian limes.
3/4 ounce Träkál
3/4 ounce green Chartreuse
3/4 ounce maraschino liqueur
3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
1 limon omani, crushed
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake until cold.
Fine strain into a chilled coupe or cocktail glass.
• Optionally, garnish with a pickled cherry. For an easy version I simply replace the half the syrup in jar of cherries with cider vinegar and a cracked limon Omani or two.
• I love this drink as a short fizz. Reduce the lime juice to 1/2 ounce and add 1/4 of simple syrup, and add one egg white. Shake everything in a shaker without ice for about 30 seconds, then add ice and shake until chilled. Strain into a cocktail glass and enjoy. Great with the garnish mentioned above and a drop or two of the pickle syrup.
• The drink this cocktail is based on, the Last Word, is traditionally made with gin in place of the Träkál. Try out a Last Word with the crushed limon Omani.
