“Strong enough to bring back the dead” is traditionally said to describe the cocktails in the Corpse Reviver family. A pre-prohibition classic, the Corpse Reviver #2 has enjoyed a resurgence in cocktail culture. It’s a truly delicious drink: bright and refreshing with floral notes. For this version we slightly modified the recipe from the Savoy Cocktail book by incorporating our Ginger Lemongrass Simple Syrup. The absinthe rinse brings just a touch of anise and herbaceousness to the cocktail.
1 oz. Gin
1 oz. Lemon Juice
1 oz. Lillet Blanc
½ oz. Cointreau
¼ oz. Absinthe
How to make a Corpse Reviver #2
