This riff on the Last Word was created by Damon Dyer in 2010 at the (now closed) Louis 649 bar in New York City. It was the winner in the cocktail contest held for Benedictine's 500th Anniversary. The cocktail takes its name from Monte Cassino, a rocky hill in Italy that's home to an abbey, the first house of the Benedictine Order, established by Benedict of Nursia in 529.
A well-balanced, herbaceous cocktail based on the Last Word spec. Really smooth and interesting; both complex and refreshing.
