Corpse Reviver #2: A Hangover Remedy Cocktail

Quick, jot down this recipe. You’ll probably need it Thursday morning, after partying on St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow. This cocktail is made to help cure your hangover and make you feel like you’re among the living once again. It’s a classic, passed to me by @tommarks on Twitter just today. Knowing that many of you will be out slamming Irish Car Bombs, Guinness and Jameson, I just had to get the recipe on the blog.

Corpse Reviver #2
Adapted by from Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails by Ted Haigh

1 oz gin (your choice)
1 oz Cointreau
1 oz Lillet Blanc
1 oz fresh lemon juice
1 drop absinthe
1 Luxardo maraschino cherry, for garnish

Shake and double strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Finish with a stemless maraschino cherry and enjoy.

To quote Ted Haigh (a.k.a. Dr. Cocktail) from his book himself on this cocktail, “To my amazement, it was the finest thing to ever pass my palate. I could taste every ingredient. It was subtle, it was fresh, it was complex, and it was delicious. My research and acquisitions continued with renewed vigor.”

How could you not want to try making this, after sentiments like those?
