Not a gin drinker? I don’t blame you, not many people are these days.
If you ask me, gin is the most underrated liquor of 2021. When you think “girls night out” or “TGIF” gin is probably not the first thing that comes to mind.
This is the drink that I use to convert my friends to bf in drinkers. It’s a variant on the Corpse Reviver part 2!
This recipe does involve one specialty item. You need an atomizer, which is just a fancy name for a spray bottle, for the absenth.
The Corpse Reviver is in the sour family, so if you don’t like lemon it may not be the drink for you. Yet if you love sours you will adore this one.
If you can get your hands on Empress gin, it makes this into a very pretty pink drink which is elegant on top of delicious!
Feeling extra special? Rim the OUTSIDE of the glass with sugar, you want to make sure it’s on the outside of the glass. You don’t want the sugar to fall in and change your drink.
Bring the Corpse to Lyfe
- 1.5oz Gin
- 1.5oz Fresh squeezed Lemon juice
- 1.5oz Triplesec
- 0.5oz Dry Vermouth
- Few sprays of absenth
First take your chilled glass and rim the outside, or half the outside with sugar.
Pour the gin, lemon, triplesec, and vermouth in a shaker over ice. Shake for about 33 times or until it feels like your fingers will freeze off. Whatever comes first.
Before pouring into your chilled glass, use the atomizer to spray the inside of the glass 3-5 times depending on your preference for absenth.
Garnish with a lemon peel twist for ultimate class.
