Corpse Reviver #2 in Craig Stoltz cocktail blog A Measured Spirit

Corpse Reviver #2

As creator Harry Craddock [him again] said, “Four of these taken in quick succession will unrevive the corpse again.”

  • 1 oz gin
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 1 oz Lillet Blanc
  • 1 oz lemon juice

Rinse glass with absinthe, dump out excess. Shake all other ingredients, strain, and plunk a brandied cherry into the well of the glass like a depth charge, and contemplate the possibilities of revival.

Repeat as needed.
