The Corpse Reviver is a family of cocktails that were originally created as a “hair of the dog” hangover cure. The most popular Corpse Reviver cocktail is Corpse Reviver #2, which includes gin, Cointreau, Lillet Blanc, lemon juice, and a dash of absinthe.
It was first mentioned in the 1930s Savoy Cocktail Book, but has since been modified and adapted by bartenders around the world. The drink is known for its bright, citrusy flavor and the subtle hint of anise from the absinthe. The Corpse Reviver #2 is also a popular choice for brunch and daytime drinking.
