It was first published in Harry Craddock's infamous "Savoy Cocktail Book" in 1930. It's interesting to note that all of the Corpse Revivers were originally designed to be "hair-of-the-dog" drinks for the morning after!

If you're not familiar with Old Tom gin, it's a rounder, more viscous, slightly sweeter gin than the London dry ones you're probably used to, making this cocktail one that even gin-haters will love!

~ If you don't already have Lillet Blanc in your bar, try and find Cocchi Americano instead...it's closer in taste to the Kina Lillet that was originally called for in this recipe and improves the flavour profile. If you can't find these a sweet vermouth will do at a pinch. ~
