Corpse Reviver No 2


The No 2 is the more popular of the Corpse Reviver cocktails, which I think were originally intended as ‘hair of the dog’ hangover cures-hence the name. There are a few places in downtown Detroit that make fantastic Corpse Reviver No 2’s, but I thought it would be fun to make at home and share for Halloween week on the Ruby Spoon. Happy Halloween!

1 ounce gin
1 ounce Cointreau
1 ounce Lillet Blanc
dash of absinthe
1 ounce lemon juice


Shake the ingredients well with ice and strain into a martini or coupe glass. Garnish with a twist of lemon peel.
