The Cherry Reviver

So I wanted to make a Corpse Reviver #2, but had run out of Lilet Blanc.   Inspired by other variations, I swapped the Lilet for Maraska Maraschino Cherry Liqueur and added a squeeze of blood orange for a nice pink color.  One guest recommended I call this “The Panty Dropper” – although no panty actually dropped, I was glad to have a young lady describe it as such.  However, I think the name “Cherry Reviver” hits the nail on the head (so to speak).  

Much like a Corpse Reviver #2, the result is an eye opening, refreshing and, well, intoxicating potion.   Served ice-cold, this deceptively sweet and tart drink is a fun summer crowd pleaser.

The Cherry Reviver

1 oz Dry Gin

1 oz Grand Mariner or Contrieu

1 oz lemon juice

1 oz Maraschino liqueur

Dash absinthe

A squeeze of blood orange juice (optional)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
