A Few Words
Best. Name. Ever. Here’s another great classic cocktail and my personal favorite of the ‘Corpse Reviver’ series. It became popular after being published in Harry Craddocks’ Savoy Cocktail Book in the 1930’s. I love this drink. Extremely bright and refreshing. Balanced. Not too sweet. Order this at a good cocktail bar if you want to look like a badass (but don’t expect it to ‘revive’ you from a hangover as originally claimed). Cheers!
