The Corpse Reviver No. 2 is meant as a hangover cure – so good that it can revive a corpse! But be weary, as The Savory №2 recipe notes, “Four of these taken in swift succession will unrevive the corpse again.” This cocktail strikes an amazing balance between the tartness of the citrus, the sweetness of the Cointreau, and the floralness of the Lillet and the absinthe. Give it a try the next time you have a rough night and let me know how it goes!
- ¾ oz gin
- ¾ Cointreau (curaçao)
- ¾ Kina Lillet Blanc
- ¾ oz lemon juice
- 1 dash of absinthe
- There are three ways to incorporate the absinthe: 1) spray it into the glass, 2) add it to the cocktail, or 3) add it to the glass and twirl the glass around to coat it.
- Mix the ingredients in a shaker cup with ice.
- Shake for 10-20 seconds.
- Strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with an orange peel.
