Review:

Whisps of smoky mezcal mingle with herbaceous tequila, rich vinous vermouth and delicate aniseed and liquorice.

Variant:

Cadáver Reviver

History:

A tequila-based riff on the classic gin-based Obituary cocktail (a Dry Martini with dashes of absinthe) borrowing elements from the Tequila Martini and Oaxaca Old Fashioned. A couple of drops of saline solution have a dramatic rounding and mellowing effect on this cocktail. Created by yours truly on the Day Of The Dead 2023 at the Clocktower, Rye, Sussex.

Alcohol content:

  • 1.9 standard drinks
  • 28.2% alc./vol. (56.4° proof)
  • 26.1 grams of pure alcohol
