The Corpse Reviver #2 is a classic cocktail, one of the greats made with gin back when people really loved their gin cocktails. It is a true testament to the mixability of the botanical-filled spirit and a drink I suggest everyone experience at least once in their lifetime. The recipe is quite simple: gin, wine (Lillet), orange and absinthe liqueurs, and lemon juice. The culmination of each of these fascinating ingredients is a cocktail lovers’ dream come true.

As is the case with the brandy Corpse Reviver, this drink (and other’s that have taken the name) are said to have been useful back in the day for reviving those souls who may have had one two many the previous night. They are meant to snap you back into reality, though I would simply add it to the ‘hair of the dog’ theory for curing hangovers. Also, note the equal measurements…the easier the better for the sufferer.
