Corpse Reviver No. Blue

Corpse Reviver No. Blue cocktail with absinthe, gin, blue curaçao, Lillet Blanc, and lemon juice

The Corpse Reviver No. Blue cocktail started its life as an in-joke for mixologist Jacob Briars, a play on the classic Corpse Reviver No. 2 cocktail. The joke started to take on a life of its own when patrons kept ordering it – funny story, it’s delicious!

If you’re a blue-drink fanatic, you owe it to yourself to invest in the good stuff! We’ve found that French brands like Giffard, Marie Brizard, and others tend to put the greatest care into their liqueurs. Their blue curaçaos are no exception, flavored with supporting elements like vanilla and other citrus that help to round out a drink that depends on a lot of the stuff to get the right color.

Ingredients

Instructions

Rinse a chilled cocktail or coupe glass with the absinthe, and dump out the excess. Shake the remaining ingredients with ice, and strain into the absinthe-rinsed glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
