After Dinner Happy Hour: The Corpse Reviver #2
- 1 oz gin
- 1 oz Cointreau (I did half and half with triple sec and orange curacao)
- 1 oz Lillet Blanc
- 1 oz lemon juice
- 2-3 drops of absinthe
Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a stemless cherry.
With a name like the Corpse Reviver, I expected this cocktail to really hit me over the head. But the flavor is subtle and very smooth. Orange comes to the forefront, propped up by a refreshing herbal gin and a hint of the absinthe. This is a perfect summer drink!
Since the Corpse Reviver is so refreshing and quaff-able, I am a little afraid that the power hinted at in the name lies instead in this drink’s ability to get you drunk fast. Will have to take my time with this one.
