A Drink To Raise The Dead: Corpse Reviver #2
Corpse Reviver #2
Harry Craddock Recipe, updated by Jena Ellenwood
Ever had a few too many and woken up feeling less than alive? I mean, not that that has ever happened to us…but if it did, this little tipple was invented to right the wrongs of the night before. Gin has long been considered a pick me up and absinthe was viewed as medicinal. Harry Craddock put the Corpse Reviver #2 in the Savoy Cocktail Book, along with a few other “Revivers,” and we are passing our version on to you! Please note, according to the Craddock: “Four of these taken in swift succession will unrevive the corpse again.” What a vicious and delicious cycle.
