Many offerings have been made to the cocktail recipe gods in celebration of the Easter holiday, but we have come up with the most appropriate of all.
The Corpse Reviver No. 2 is a traditional drink found in the storied Savoy Cocktail Book from the 1930s, with a name that just happens to suit. We combined this recipe with one of the season’s most recognizable icons, the Marshmallow Peep. We then plied the dark arts to transform these treats from their pure state into creatures that have risen from the dead to walk again and feast on others of their kind.
Before you enjoy a holiday meal this weekend, whip up a few of these special sips for your friends and loved ones. They are sure to remember for a long time to come.
