This is an oldie but a goodie and as the name suggests comes with a hell of a kick.
You will need:
A bottle of La Fee absinthe
A good quality gin such as Tanqueray Dry London Gin
A bottle of Lillet Blanc
A bottle of triple sec liqueur
The juice of a lemon and an orange twist to garnish
Call your boss and book the next day off!
Originally created by Harry Craddock in his book back The Savoy Cocktail Book he warned ‘Four of these taken in quick succession will revive the corpse again’.
This isn’t a bad thing as the cost of the ingredients will add up, so at least they should last you a decent amount of time!
To make the Corpse Reviver:
Add a dash of Absinthe to a chilled martini glass and turn the glass to line the sides
Add equal measures (22ml) of gin, Lillet Blanc, triple sec and lemon juice to a cocktail shaker and pour in any excess Absinthe from the martini glass
Add ice and shake vigorously
Strain into the martini glass and add a twist of orange to garnish
