A #Halloween Tipple in #LondonCocktailWeek? Make Mine A Corpse Reviver @DrinkUpLDN

Is the sun up over the yard arm? Or down over the graveyard?

With this being London Cocktail Week and with Halloween just around the corner, here's the first of two guest posts from cocktail columnist, London bar reviewer & blogger The Barfly…

The Savoy Hotel is the home of The Corpse Reviver and was first printed as a recipe in Harry Craddock’s legendary Savoy Cocktail Book (first published 1930).

Here’s a variation on the famous Hair Of The Dog tipple, named the Corpse Reviver No.2 and taken from my beloved 1965 edition of Harry’s book:

Corpse Reviver (No. 2)

1 shot gin

1 shot Cointreau

1 shot Lillet Blanc

1 shot fresh lemon juice

Dash of absinthe

Shake well with ice and strain in to a cocktail glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.

A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at
