Right then chaps – it's #MasterofCocktails time once again. This week we made another real classic – The Corpse Reviver No. 2.
It's yet another excellent recipe taken from The Savoy Cocktail Book – a superb compendium you all should own.
The Corpse Reviver No. 2 is also one of those drinks that manages to lives up to the awesome name it's been given. Unsurprisingly, it was originally a hair of the dog drink, with Craddock warning readers that "four of these taken in swift succession will unrevive the corpse again"! It can certainly be enjoyed at any time though. We've made a few substitutions here – most notably Pierre Ferrand Curaçao has been brought in on account of its yumminess.

List of Ingredients
20ml Bathtub Gin
20ml Noilly Prat
20ml Pierre Ferrand Curaçao
20ml Fresh Lemon Juice
St. George Spirits Absinthe Verte (Rinse)
Maraschino Cherry (Garnish)
So – if start by popping a coupette glass into the freezer to chill...
Now grab a bottle of Bathtub Gin, and measure out 20ml. Add to a Boston Shaker Glass.
Follow that with 20ml of Noilly Prat.
Then 20ml of Pierre Ferrand Curaçao.
And finally 20ml Fresh Lemon Juice.
Pack your shaker with ice and give it a good old rattle for 30 seconds or so.
Now grab your coupette from the freezer, and rinse it with St. George Spirits Absinthe Verte.
Double-strain into the coupette...
Drop in a Luxardo Maraschino cherry, and you're done.
