Bacardí brand ambassador Jacob Briars created this drink as a joke, but it’s become a popular order, so he gets the last laugh. It is similar to the Corpse Reviver No. 2, but swaps Cointreau for blue curaçao.


  • Absinthe, to rinse
  • 3/4 ounce blue curaçao
  • 3/4 ounce Lillet blanc
  • 3/4 ounce London dry gin
  • 3/4 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • Garnish: lemon twist


  1. Rinse a chilled coupe or Martini glass with absinthe and set aside.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients to a shaker with ice, and shake until well-chilled.

  3. Fine-strain into the prepared glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.
