The Corpse Reviver No 2 recipe is a classic cocktail that’s crisp, tart and perfectly balanced! It’s one heck of a drink…just as unique as its name.


  • 1 ounce gin
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 ounce Cointreau (or Grand Marnier)
  • 1 ounce dry vermouth or Lillet Blanc*
  • 1/2 teaspoon absinthe
  • For the garnish: Orange peel or orange wedge


  1. Add the gin, lemon juice, Cointreau, dry vermouth, and absinthe to a cocktail shaker. Fill it with ice and shake it until cold.
  2. Strain into a cocktail glass. If desired, garnish with an orange peel or orange wedge. 


*The most classic liquor here is Cocchi Americano, if you happen to have it.
