The Corpse Reviver No. 2—the name alone is enough to make your head spin. It's a classic cocktail that's been around for over a century, and for good reason. This drink doesn't mess aroundit's a boozy, citrusy, and herbaceous concoction that'll wake you up, slap you in the face, and make you feel alive.

Legend has it that it was originally created as a hangover cure by Harry Craddock, the legendary Prohibition-era bartender at The Savoy Hotel in London. He advised that this drink be consumed "before 11 a.m., or whenever steam and energy are needed."

It's your go-to on those rough mornings when you need a serious kickstart.

But don't let the ominous name fool you. The Corpse Reviver No. 2 is more than just a cure for post-party blues. It's a beautiful classic cocktail that can be enjoyed throughout the day or night.

This drink could wake the dead, but it's the living who'll truly appreciate its irresistible charm.
