Corpse Reviver No.2 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.

This corpse reviver ingredients features gin, Lillet blanc (a French aperitif), orange liqueur and fresh lemon juice. The result is tart, cold and refreshing, precisely what you need to start the day—or the evening, if you prefer to consume your liquor when the sun’s down. Now, the Corpse Reviver No. 2 gin cocktail is a popular addition at craft cocktail bars and an occasional option at brunch joints that embrace the drink’s ability to kick-start the morning.
