Last Word

In the 1920s, Prohibition put an end to the consumption of cocktails in bars in America. Only private clubs are allowed to serve alcohol, and it was in 1925 at the ATHLETIC CLUB in Detroit that the famous "LAST WORD" was created. Brought up to date in 2004 in Seattle by Murray STENSON, it spread to bars in Chicago, New York and San Francisco, then very quickly to England, then finally to the whole world.
