Corpse Reviver No. 2

Corpse Reviver No. 2 is of the classic cocktails featured in the 1930 Savoy Cocktail Book. A refreshing shaken cocktail featuring gin, triples sec, lemon juice, absinthe and vermouth, it promises to give you a lift on a long night.

However as Harry Craddock himself said:

“Four of these taken in quick succession will unrevive the corpse again”


Ingredients for a Corpse Reviver No. 2

22ml gin (I used Fords)

22ml triple sec

22ml lemon juice

22ml Lillet blanc (referred to as Kina Lillet in the Savoy Cocktail book)

4ml absinthe


Shake all ingredients together in an ice-filled shaker. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass of your choice.
