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. It was (and is) a popular name for those 'hair of the dog' drinks bartenders have seen much need for over the years.

Also, you may want to try the other classic, Corpse Reviver #2, which has a gin base, or its modern rendition, the Corpse Reviver #2011.
