1/2 oz Mezcal
1/2 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1/2 oz Amaro Montenegro
1/2 oz Lime Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass. Top with 1 oz Nino Franco Prosecco.

After returning from the Franklin Southie on the Red Line, I got off the subway at Davis Square and realized that there was still time to catch a nightcap at Spoke Wine Bar. At Spoke, bartender Sam Karachi mentioned that he could make his Last Word riff, the Afterword, that he could not make me as a follow up to the Saber & Foil since the bar was out of Amaro Montenegro at the time. With the Last Word symbolic foursome of ingredients being lightened by prosecco here, it reminded me of Trina's Starlite Lounge's Word to Your Mom which utilized Pretty Things Jack d'Or beer to a similar effect.

Once mixed, the Afterword's herbal notes from the amaro and Yellow Chartreuse joined the lime and wine aromas. The crisp sip from the citrus and dry sparkling wine transitioned into an herbal and slightly smokey mezcal swallow.
