From the bartender’s corner – Viking Corpse Reviver #2
This is the first cocktail I made with the Harahorn gin. Of course, given the origin of Harahorn gin in Norway, I had to call this a “Viking” Corpse Reviver. I stayed mostly true to the formula of the traditional Corpse Reviver with the sole exception that instead of mixing in the absinthe, I rinsed the cocktail glass with it and threw the excess part.
Next time, I will probably go with a lower amount of fresh lemon juice than the original recipe calls for. To me, at least, the sour citrus is overwhelming any traces of the sweet citrus (orange) or the junipers (and in this case the blackberries too).
Otherwise, as promised, with 92-proof gin, lillet blanc and Cointreau – not to speak of the 148 proof absinthe, this is sure to revive most corpses!!!
P.S. The way the Vikings played today, I might actually need a Falcons Corpse Reviver next 🙂
