Did you ever have one of those days? Maybe one of those weeks? Here’s something that will pick you up and set you right again. And when you’re done, there’s a delicious cherry waiting for you in the bottom of the glass.
(The name comes from the old days of serious drinking, when one of these would have been the morning hangover cure. Yes, morning! We can’t recommend it until happy hour, though.)
The Corpse Reviver (no. 2)
1 ounce gin
1 ounce Lillet Blanc
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
1 ounce Cointreau
1 drop absinthe or pastis
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker; fill with ice and shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.
