The debate continues as to whether The Corpse Reviver No. 2 is the ultimate hair of the dog concoction, but there is little disagreement on the fact that the cocktail is sensational. First served at the Ritz in Paris back in the 1920s, this cocktail will awake your senses. I have always enjoyed Aviation American Gin with Lillet Blanc, but with some Cointreau, lemon, and absinthe in the mix, the combination is elevated to a whole new level.
Harry Craddock’s book, The Savoy Cocktail Book, was published in 1930 and included a recipe for The Corpse Reviver No. 2. About the cocktail, he wrote, “To be taken before 11 a.m., or whenever steam and energy are needed.” We recommend one for any occasion; although what better day to imbibe a drink strong enough to wake the dead than Easter Sunday?
