The boy and his poison: The Corpse Reviver #2

As you’ll know by now, I'm all about helping the exhausted hedonist, especially on those days when they're more like this sort of animal than a party-animal. Cosmetic quick fixes can give temporary relief, I’ve even tried breathable caffeine, but lets face it, sometimes you need a more holistic approach to your restoration. Something that will grab your tonsils, spank your uvula, and cha-cha down your throat until your back to your usual convivial self.

Its 7pm, the body is willing but the mind needs a bit of coaxing. You need a sophisticated rapid remedy, we’re talking a corpse reviver #2.

Coming from a family of drinks devoted to the reanimation of a weary spirit this is my favourite of the three variants by far. Don’t be deceived by the simplicity of the recipe, the flavour is addictively complex with a perfect balance between sugary gin, sour lemon and that extra unfamiliar kick from the absinthe. Its also not at any costs, to be reserved purely for hangovers, its a sophisticated start to any evening out and a nice name-dropper to order off-menu in bars.

You’ll need
  • 1 part gin
  • 1 part lemon juice
  • 1 part Cointreau/triple sec
  • 1 part dry vermouth (ideally lillet blanc)
  • 1 dash (tiny) of pastis/absinthe 
Shake it
  • Add all your ingredients to a shaker with ice
  • Shake for 10-15 seconds
  • Pour into chilled coupe or martini glasses
  • Garnish with a Maraschino cherry
