Corpse Reviver Cocktail 125ml


Although launched for Halloween, this pre-made cocktail is scarily good at any time of year. Make no bones about it, this autumn-inspired creation is the only drink to serve in the witching hour…

This little devil is the Corpse Reviver, a cocktail so potent it might raise the dead. The Corpse Reviver is a classic cocktail designed as an invigorating ‘pick-me-up’, or maybe more accurately a ‘kill or cure’ for those who are flagging – imagine Victor Frankenstein jump-starting his monster. There are many versions of this creation, and strictly ours is a Corpse Reviver No.2 because it’s made using Portobello Road Gin, Cointreau, Lillet Blanc, lemon juice and a few drops of the ‘Green Fairy’, a.k.a. absinthe. Crisp, refreshing and complex, it tastes as if a bartender had mixed it in front of your very eyes. Just be warned, in the go-to literature for mixologists, The Savoy Cocktail Book, Harry Craddock advises that, “Four of these taken in swift succession will unrevive the corpse again.”

Small enough to easily fit in the fridge, this cute metal bottle contains a single-serving mixture of eye of newt, toe of frog, wing of bat, tongue of dog… only kidding. There’s nothing weird, no preservatives, no widgets, no tricks; just treats and a little bit of air in the top so that when you shake it, it gets a proper mix. The result is a bar-quality cocktail at home, without all that clackety noise and without having to make sure your ice cube trays are full, you have all the ingredients, and you can find the cocktail shaker. Simply pop it in the fridge and when it’s spine-chillingly cold, shake it vigorously for ten seconds to aerate and mix, then pour the contents into a coupe or Martini glass. Garnish with a twist of lemon zest if you’re feeling fancy. We recommend pairing the Harvey Nichols Corpse Reviver with some reanimated cadavers by way of Dawn of the Dead, Train to Busan, 28 Days Later, a binge of The Walking Dead or the truly terrifying Spanish flick, REC. Or maybe with one of the fascinating books by Caitlin Doughty (a self-professed ‘future corpse’)?
