RECIPE

Corpse Reviver #1

MATTHEW KELLY/SUPERCALL

A member of the hangover-curing Corpse Reviver family of cocktails, the Corpse Reviver #1 is less popular today than its sour cousin, but we argue it’s the better drink. Combining Cognac with Calvados—a traditional French apple brandy—gives the drink a rich, woody depth, while sweet vermouth brings balance and roundness. This boozy breakfast drink is the perfect way to start your day—hangover or not.
