Cocktail Recipe: Corpse Reviver #2

Thanks to cocktail enthusiast James Thompson for submitting this classic cocktail and his wonderful photo. Interested in sharing your inspirations? Email us at unchartedwine@gmail.com.

The term "corpse reviver" was the term used to describe a family of cocktails perfect for the morning hangover. "One will revive a hung-over corpse but it is said upon drinking 4 in quick succession, one will become a corpse again." Many of the original corpse reviver recipes have been lost to time, but some survive. The most commonly known is number two, and it is downright tasty. Drink this and see why they had to warn you against drinking four.

.75 oz lemon juice

.75 oz Dry Curacao
