Happy Hour of Horrors: Corpse Reviver

The next time you’re trying to think of something clever and creative to order at the bar, put down the Merlot and order up one of these. The Corpse Reviver gets its name from the shock it will have on your system within a few minutes of downing it. (I recommend you down it).

Serve: Straight up, without ice

Use 3/4 an ounce (that’s like, a jigger or so, right?) of each of these: brandy, apple brandy, gin, sweet vermouth, Cointreau, lemon juice and Lillet

Add a dash of absinthe

Shake together in a mixer with ice. Strain into a chilled martini glass.

Check your surroundings.

  1. Yo, Varla . . .

    I’m guess’n by the content of your books, you’re probably familiar with Charles Fort. . . and subscribe to the FORTEAN magazine . . .

    1. Yes, I’ve also read a few of his books when I was younger (I think a lot of them are in the public domain now) I don’t subscribe to the magazine but like to pick it up once in a while.
