Corpse Reviver

Corpse Reviver Cocktail

Now this is a fun, stylish cocktail for Halloween parties. It pairs well in a dark cocktail menu with the Black Martini for a little scare with some class. The story of the Corpse Reviver is that of a drink "taken before 11 a.m., or whenever steam and energy are needed," according to The Savoy Cocktail Book (Harry Craddock, 1930). There are a number of other variations of the drink, which have been researched quite diligently at Bitters & Twisted.
