On tonight’s show, Rachel was supposed to show us all how to make a fabulous cocktail to commemorate the possible looming government shutdown. Unfortunately we ran out of time due to breaking news out of D.C., but she happily demonstrated for us after the show!
Corpse Reviver #2
Makes 1 cocktail.
- 3/4 oz. gin (preferably Plymouth or Death’s Door)
- 3/4 oz. Cointreau
- 3/4 oz. Lillet Blanc
- 3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice (squeezed from an actual lemon)
- 2 drops of absinthe
Pour the gin, Cointreau, Lillet Blanc and lemon juice to your cocktail shaker. Then, add no more than 2 drops of absinthe. Add ice, then shake well (until you can’t do it anymore!), then strain the wondrous, lemon-y concoction into your glass.
