Alicia Perry’s Corpse Reviver No. 2

Alicia Perry, Polite Provisions | San Diego

The winning recipe from our blind tasting, Alicia Perry’s Corpse Reviver No. 2 does not strictly adhere to the equal-parts doctrine. It contains one ounce of Plymouth Gin, and three-quarter ounces each of Lillet, Cointreau and lemon juice, while a quarter-ounce of simple syrup lends roundness to the flavor profile. A pastis rinse completes the formula.

  • 1 ounce gin, preferably Plymouth
  • 3/4 ounce Lillet Blanc
  • 3/4 ounce Cointreau
  • 3/4 ounce lemon juice
  • 1/4 ounce simple syrup

Garnish: lemon twist

  1. Rinse a coupe with pastis and set aside.
  2. Combine all the remaining ingredients in a mixing tin and shake with ice.
  3. Strain into the prepared coupe.
  4. Garnish with a lemon twist.
