Just in time for Halloween, we bring you a delicious zombie beverage. No, no. We kid!
The Corpse Reviver, according to the history of the drink, is meant as something of
a “hair that bit the dog” hangover cure—sure to reanimate even a corpse.
We love this drink because it’s clean, refreshing, and tart.
(We added one of Elle’s cherries to make it a little spooky for this time of year).
Corpse Reviver No. 2
1 part gin
1 part Lillet blanc or dry vermouth

YES! There is a Corpse Reviver No. 1.
