- 1 oz scotch (used Black Grouse)
- 1 oz Cointreau
- 1 oz Cocchi Americano
- 1 oz lemon juice
- 1 dash absinthe
The original Corpse Reviver #2 appears in the venerable Savoy Cocktail Book, edited by Harry Craddock, and turns up in a number of other good bar books as well. Since the amount of absinthe varies slightly from author to author, I turned to the acknowledged authority on Craddock’s book, Erik Ellestad of Savoy Stomp to see what he did with it. I swear I didn’t look at his photo before icing that glass. Clearly the thing to use.
