A twist on a classic Savoy cocktail; ‘Corpse Reviver No. 2’

This cocktail is a stronger martini style than its older brother. The mixed drink includes Fords gin (made by the 86 co.), then is stirred with Cocchi Americano, Poire Williams and a pinch of citric acid.

Originally the Corpse Reviver was designed as a breakfast drink to relieve hangovers and embraces the expression ‘hair of the dog.’ The Savoy Cocktail Book states, “Four of these taken in quick succession will un-revive the corpse again.”
