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. If you don’t have the blue stuff, you can use orange curaçao (or triple sec, or orange shrubb), with a drop or two of blue food dye added.

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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
