burrough's reviver

40 mL Beefeater 24 Gin (1 1/2 oz regular Beefeater)
20 mL Aquavit (3/4 oz Linie)
15 mL Orgeat (1/2 oz)
15 mL Lemon Juice (1/2 oz)
2.5 mL Simple Syrup (omit)
2 dash Absinthe (20 drop Copper & Kings)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Two Tuesdays ago, I delved into the Claridge's Cocktail Book and spotted the Burrough's Reviver created by Nathan McCarley-O'Neill at the Merchant Hotel in Belfast. Nathan later wrote me how "It was a drink I created for the Beefeater 24 Global Final based around James Burrough, the creator of Beefeater," and that this Corpse Reviver #2 riff won said competition. To me, it read like a Corpse Reviver met the Army & Navy Cocktail with a touch of aquavit, so I was sold. Once prepared, it proffered a floral, caraway, and juniper aroma. Next, lemon and almond notes on the sip faded into gin, caraway, nutty, and anise flavors on the swallow.
