The Corpse Reviver #2 (one of a whole cadre of variations, obviously) was initially devised as a hangover cure, hence the name. While it probably won't make you feel any less like a corpse after a long night out, it does play better in the morning than a lot of other cocktails. Soft and a little sour, this classic goes great with brunch.

Ingredients

1 oz gin
1 oz Cointreau
1 oz Lillet Blanc
1 oz fresh lemon juice
1 to 3 drops of absinthe or pastis (Herbsaint, Pernod, etc.)
Stemless cherry for garnish

Preparation: How to make a Corpse Reviver #2

  1. Shake in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
