Just in time for the Halloween holiday, we’ve created what is likely one of the most goth cocktails ever devised; the Seamus Reviver has a deep purple colouring from one of its key ingredients, and uses our Oberon Absinthe to both build a powerful impact in flavor and effect. Using the Navy strength gin at 114 proof and the absinthe at 140 proof, this WILL sneak up on you, and quickly.
The Seamus Reviver (our take on the Corpse Reviver 2)
3/4 ounce Big Bottom Distilling Navy Strength Gin
3/4 ounce lemon juice
3/4 ounce Creme de Violette
1/2 ounce Tualatin Valley Distilling Oberon Absinthe Superieure
Shake ingredients together with ice, then strain into chilled glass. Recommendation for one serving in a single sitting. Optional serving: add soda water to taste to reduce the bigger alcohol punch and extend the volume of the cocktail.
As always, please consume responsibly and in moderation. This cocktail is a balanced crisp and savory flavour with big floral and botanical notes. A thicker mouthfeel is cut with the citric acid making for a very pleasant sipper down to the last.
