Looking for the perfect Halloween cocktail to impress your friends? Try this spin on an old Prohibition classic: the Corpse Reviver. First popularized in the 1930’s, the drink faded away from popular memory until it was reintroduced by cocktail historian Ted Haigh. This Halloween, we dug up our own version, using local Colorado spirits.
1 oz Tin Cup Colorado Whiskey
1 oz Leopold Bros. Blackberry Whiskey
½ oz Fernet Branca
Keep your ingredients chilled until ready for use.
Fill your cocktail shaker halfway with ice cubes.
Add the whiskeys, followed by the Fernet, and shake over ice.
Serve the drink “up” — in a chilled cocktail glass without ice — or as a shot. Add a dash or two of bitters, and enjoy. You’ll be stumbling around like the walking dead in no time.
