Corpse Reviver II

by on October 2010

Well, after reading a number of articles on the Corpse Reviver II, on other mixology related sites, I decided to give it a try. Finding Lillet Blanc was the hardest part and required a trip 100 km east to get some. Luckily I have family to visit in the area, so the trip wasn't just for Lillet. I built the drink using equal parts (3/4 oz) of Plymouth Gin, Cointreau, Lillet Blanc and fresh lemon juice. I then added three drops of Henri Bardouin pastis. Gave it a shake and strain, poured into a martini glass, sniffed and sipped. The nose is lemon and orange, which isn't surprising. The flavour is unique, but the citrus (lemon and orange) stands out. The Corpse Reviver II is smooth, but really nothing substantial. I was going to write a more in depth article about this drink, but after trying it, I'm not sure there is much to write about. I suppose not all drinks can be great, but if you want a drink to be unique, by all means give a Corpse Reviver II a try, or order it at your local bar. It's not a wow type drink though, to me anyway.

Corpse Reviver II

1 part gin
1 part Cointreau
1 part Lillet Blanc
1 part lemon juice
Dash or two of absinthe or substitute
Shake well with ice and strain in to a cocktail glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.

A better drink to try is the Wet Grave or possibly the Monkey Gland.
