Corpse Reviver No.1 Cocktail Recipe


The Corpse Reviver was a set of cocktails traditionally consumed as a hair-of-the-dog, a hangover reliever to refresh and enliven after a night of heavy drinking. However, the category was a loose one, with no real shared guidelines on ingredients other than they tended to be relatively high-proof and served up, rather than over ice.

Unlike its more popular cousin, the Corpse Reviver No.2 Cocktail, — a bright and botanical gin drink misted with absinthe — No. 1 is a rich and bold mixture with a brandy base. You might be thinking, it is an odd choice for what is historically served as a morning drink, but it is a lush and lovely evening tipple, leaning towards the Manhattan family with its dark spirits and vermouth.
