As is the case with the brandy Corpse Reviver, this drink (and other's that have taken the name) are said to have been useful back in the day for reviving those souls who may have had one two many the previous night. They are meant to snap you back into reality, though I would simply add it to the 'hair of the dog' theory for curing hangovers. Also, note the equal measurements...the easier the better for the sufferer.
