The Corpse Reviver is an old-time favorite in the cocktail scene and has been adapted a few times over the years for those morning sufferers of a bit too much fun. It is the gin version, the Corpse Reviver #2 that inspired this modern version. In the Corpse Reviver #2011 you will be mixing a fantastic gin (Hendrick's - website) with wine and blood orange, absinthe, and Root liqueurs. It is extremely complex and rather potent, but a gin cocktail worthy of the effort and a great choice for any occasion, especially those with a haunted theme.

The one ingredient that is semi-foreign to many imbibers will be Root. It was inspired by an old, alcoholic herbal remedy that was transformed into root beer when the Temperance movement began their reign. Root is made by Art in the Age and you can find out more at their website: ArtInTheAge.com
