This is the best mixed drink ever. When I was a younger man, in the days before my wife, vinfille
, introduced me to the Corpse Reviver #2, I would drink martinis. Now, I understand that martinis are ontologically unsound, a drink for nouveau rich white suburban asshats with delusions of class. Furthermore, the Corpse Reviver contains lemon juice, an important anti-scorbutic for those of us living in the abysmal depths of winter in the Great White North.
