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.
