To celebrate Halloween this year, we’ve developed a delicious gin-filled treat that you can recreate at home. There’s certainly no tricks in this simple recipe, with just a few ingredients including Seville Marmalade Gin, it makes for a scarily good weekend tipple.
Originally created to help revive those who might have had a little too much to drink the night before, it has gained ‘hair of the dog’ status. Historically, there are a number of recipes under the Corpse Reviver umbrella and in 1930, Harry Craddock, bartender at The Savoy noted the No.2 recipe down in The Savoy Cocktail Book. Derived from earlier recipes in the collection, Harry’s version contains gin, triple sec, lillet blanc, lemon juice and a few dashes of absinthe and in his own words, ‘Four of these taken in succession will revive the corpse again’. We definitely do not advise this but sipped, this drink is a mouthwatering mix of interesting flavours. Through the years, there have been additional versions developed and for this year’s Halloween, we’ve put a Chase twist on this mouth-watering cocktail.
