“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.
Corpse Reviver #2 Cocktail Recipe
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
½ oz. Social Mixers Ginger Lemongrass Simple Syrup
¼ oz. Absinthe
- Absinthe rinse: coat inside of glass with 1/4 oz. Absinthe and pour excess out. Set glass aside.
- In a shaker, combine remaining ingredients and shake vigorously.
- Strain cocktail into absinthe-coated glass.
