In his book The Joy of Mixology, Gary Regan recommends a version of the Corpse Reviver with 2 oz applejack, ¾ oz cognac and ¾ oz sweet vermouth, which he writes was originally created in 2001 by Steve Gilberg, publisher of happyhours.com. This does indeed make a drink strong enough to awaken the dead but those wishing to remain compos mentis may prefer this equal parts version which I created after being inspired by Steve Gilberg's Corpse Reviver.
