About this Cocktail

Like the name, this is a not very clever and fairly obvious takeoff on the Corpse Reviver #2, but with tequila instead of gin, and a portion of the triple sec replaced with Mezcal in lieu of using Absinthe. The orange twist adds a nice aroma but it is mainly to add some visual interest to a dull yellow drink.

  • 1oz reposado Tequila
  • 1 oz Lillet Blanc
  • 0.75oz Triple Sec
  • 0.25oz Mezcal
  • 1oz Lime juice
  • 1 barspoon honey syrup
  • Blood Orange twist

Mix ingredients except for twist in ice filled shaker and shake well. Strain into chilled glass and express and garnish with Blood Orange Twist.

    I'm working my way through corpse reviver variations and this has been one of my favourites. I used Milagro, Cocchi Americano, Cointreau and Vida. I also love the name.
