When it comes to the numerous delicious variations of the Last Word, Hendrik Albrecht also has something to say: with his exciting mezcal-peach variant.

40 ml Del Maguey Minero mezcal
20 ml Chartreuse verte
20 ml lime juice
20 ml Crème de pêche de vigne de Bourgogne by Cartron

Preparation: Shaken.

Hendrik Albrecht served us this drink at Le Lion on 23 January 2016, shortly after he had developed it. Hendrik told us that he had visited Kleines Phi with Mario Kappes shortly before and that Pät Barten had prepared a mezcal shot with peach liqueur for them there. Inspired by this wonderful combination of flavours, Hendrik then developed this variant of a Last Word. The drink only got a name some time after we were allowed to taste it. “Quemada palabra” means “burnt word” and refers to the smoky aromas of the mezcal and also to the Last Word.

Since we don’t have Brizard’s peach liqueur at hand, but only Cartron’s, we took the liberty of modifying the original recipe in this respect. This also makes a wonderful drink, and you should try it the next time you’re at Le Lion at the latest.


2016 Hendrik Albrecht, Le Lion: 40 ml San Cosme Mezcal, 20 ml Chartreuse grün, 20 ml Limette, 20 ml Pfirsichlikör (Brizard).

Hi, I'm Armin and in my spare time I want to promote bar culture as a blogger, freelance journalist and Bildungstrinker (you want to know what the latter is? Then check out "About us"). My focus is on researching the history of mixed drinks. If I have ever left out a source you know of, and you think it should be considered, I look forward to hearing about it from you to learn something new. English is not my first language, but I hope that the translated texts are easy to understand. If there is any incomprehensibility, please let me know so that I can improve it.
