Corpse Reviver 2

Another great recipe to try at home is the Corpse Reviver. A very tasty recipe on which you can swap ingredients to make it your own cocktail. The first recipe in old cocktailbooks was based on brandy, the second version was based on gin. The vermouth was originally Kina Lillet, which isn’t on sale anymore (Yes, that’s the vermouth which was also in the original Vesper!).

Corpse Reviver 2

A few dashes of Absinthe (Don’t have Absinthe? Try Pernod, Raki, Ouzo or another anise liqueur)
2 cl Bombay Sapphire Gin
2 cl Cointreau
2 cl Forest vermouth white
2 cl fresh lemon juice

Give the inside or your glass a nice coating with Absinthe. Don’t use too much so you don’t have to discard it. Such a shame to throw away good spirits. Did you notice how I called it a coating instead of a rinse 😉
Add all ingredients (except the absinthe) to a shaker with lots of ice. Shake for 20 seconds. Double strain in a nice coupe or antique wineglass. The original recipe asks for a neat serve in a prechilled coupe, but I also like to serve it in a wineglass with a large iceball. Add a dried limewheel. Don’t use fresh lime because it will be too dominant.
