Cocktails are a good thing, but, actually, they contains poison :) One of great problem of imbibing is an abuse of alcohol.
Classic cocktails for case of abuse of alcohol are “corpse rivivers” and “pick-me-ups”. I try something thereof. First recipe of Corpse Revivver #1 Cocktail was found in Cocktails and Mixed Drinks by Anthony Hogg. The author of this recipe is famous John Johnson from Savoy`s Amerivcan Bar. The cocktail was invented in 1948 (UPD: That seems to be incorrect, the recipe was created by Joe Gilmore in 1954).
Corpse Reviver #1 (a)
30 ml brandy
30 ml Fernet-Branca
30 ml creme de menthe white
Shake. Cocktail glass.
It is wonderfull cocktail! Real remedy.
Another recipe of Corpse Reviver #1 was found on Cocktail DB. The author of this corpse reviver is Frank Meier, barman of parisian Ritz Hotel. The cocktail was invented in 1920s.
Corpse Reviver #1(b)
30 ml brandy
20 ml apple brandy
20 ml sweet vermouth
Stri well with ice. Cocktail glass.
This cocktail has very strong taste. It is not my choice.
The name of Pick-Me-Up Cocktail enamour me. This recipe was found in Cocktails and Mixed Drinks by Anthony Hogg.
30 ml cognac
30 ml dry vermouth
30 ml pastis
Stir well with ice. Cocktail glass.
I shake this cocktail and use Ricard as pastis. The result is great! The Pick-Me-Up Cocktail is admirable cocktail. Another great remedy for crapulent.
