Cocktail of the week - "Corpse Reviver #2"

To celebrate National Absinthe Day on Sunday 5th March, our bartenders propose you a special cocktail, mixing the “green fairy” with gin.

The Corpse Reviver #2 consists of equal parts of gin, lemon juice, Cointreau, Lillet and absinthe and it belongs to the family of “corpse revivers” - so named because of their ability to make hangovers less painful!

This absinthe cocktail was first listed in the Savoy Cocktail Handbook back in 1930 and it came with a dire warning: “Four of these taken in swift succession will unrevive the corpse”.
