Corpse Reviver #2

A classic cocktail with a name that could wake the dead.

The Corpse Reviver #2 is rightfully considered by many to be the best-tasting of the Corpse Reviver cocktails. It’s one of the staples at Chicago’s gin-focused bar Scofflaw, where bar manager Luke DeYoung calls it “perfectly balanced, refreshing yet still strong. It’s an iconic cocktail that won’t go out of fashion any time soon.”
