Gin Cocktail Recipe – The Corpse Reviver #2

The Corpse Reviver #2 is easily a favorite gin cocktail of mine – and today I’ll share with you this simple recipe!

Thankfully, Harry Craddock preserved the Corpse Reviver #2 by including its recipe in The Savoy Cocktail Book ( in 1930. The build is simple, and the taste is wonderful – I hope you enjoy this drink like I do! Cheers!
