Corpse Reviver No. 2

3rd #cocktail of #FridayNightCocktails on 26th April: Corpse Reviver No. 2


Our third and final cocktail is the Corpse Reviver No. 2.

The Corpse Reviver #2, as described in the Savoy Cocktail Book, is the most commonly drunk of the corpse revivers, and consists of equal parts gin, lemon juice, curaçao (commonly Cointreau), Kina Lillet (now usually replaced with Cocchi Americano, as a closer match to Kina Lillet than modern Lillet Blanc), and a dash of absinthe.

This is the IBA offiical cocktail which uses Lillet Blanc.
