The drink is a harmonious mix of cognac, Calvados, and red vermouth, creating a rich and aromatic flavor profile with depths of fruit and spice. The use of Calvados, an apple or pear brandy from Normandy, France, adds a distinct layer of fruity complexity which, along with the herbal notes of the red vermouth, complements the robustness of the cognac. Served in a cocktail glass, the Corpse Reviver is both an elegant and bracing concoction, revered for its balance and its unapologetic nod to the traditional stiff drinks of the past.
