Cocktail: Corpse Reviver #2
Perhaps you bought a bottle of Cocchi Americano to make The Vesper, and now you're wondering what else you can do with it? While I think the aperitif is ripe for experimentation, another classic is the Corpse Reviver #2.
The Corpse Revivers are a family of "hangover cure" cocktails (says Wikipedia). I wouldn't put much stock in that though, given the amount of booze in this drink.
Corpse Reviver #2
3/4 oz. gin
3/4 oz. Cocchi Americano aperitif
3/4 oz. Cointreau
3/4 oz. Fresh lemon juice
Dash of absinthe (about 1/8 of a teaspoon if you want to be precise)
Lemon twist (optional garnish)
Shake ingredients in a mixer with ice until cold. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with lemon twist.
