Corpse Reviver No. 2

  • Preparation 10 MIN
  • Servings 2
This potent Prohibition-era cocktail was a standout at Las Vegas' Herbs & Rye, a bustling off-the-Strip cocktail bar.



  1. Add a dash of absinthe to two martini glasses. Rotate the glasses to coat the surface and drain any excess back into the bottle.
  2. In a cocktail shaker, combine the gin, Lillet, Cointreau, lemon juice and ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into the glasses and garnish with the orange zest.


Coating the glasses in absinthe first is the classic way to prepare this cocktail. However, you can add 1 tsp (5 ml) directly to the cocktail shaker along with the other ingredients before shaking.
