Corpse Reviver #2

The Corpse Reviver, originally named a reviver was introduced at the turn of the twentieth century. It was one of those drinks that helped you revive from whatever you had too much of the night before! There are a couple of recipes, one version is from barman Harry Craddock of the Savoy hotel. He warned, “four taken in swift succession will unrevive the corpse again.”  This version is my favorite and great anytime!CorpseRevivor2_Web
