Corpse Reviver No. Blue

Back in 2007, Jacob Briars introduced this cheeky homage to the Corpse Reviver No. 2 with blue curaçao instead of Cointreau. “It tastes broadly and very much like a classic cocktail from the 1920s and ’30s—it just happens to be blue,” Briars says. He usually reaches for a blue bottle of Bombay Sapphire gin to seal the deal.


  • 1 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. Lillet Blanc (or Cocchi Americano)
  • 1 oz. blue curaçao
  • 1 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 dash absinthe
  • Tools:shaker, strainer, fine strainer
  • Glass:coupe
  • Garnish:lemon peel


Shake ingredients with ice to chill, then fine strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish.
