3. Strain into your chilled glass.

Which non-alcoholic Absinthe should I use in my Corpse Reviver No. 2?

You'll be hard pressed to find a non-alcoholic Absinthe but we've find one! Use Lyre's Absinthe as your absinthe replacement. It's a unique spirit crafted to capture the essence of a traditional made absinthe.

Which non-alcoholic Gin should I use in my Corpse Reviver No. 2?

There are many great non-alcoholic gins you can use. If you don't have one yet, we recommend trying Monday Gin, Ritual Gin, Pentire Seaward, or Lyre's Dry London Spirit. These all compliment the non-alcoholic Corpse Reviver quite well.

Which non-alcoholic White Vermouth should I use in my Corpse Reviver No. 2?

We've made our favorite verison of the Corpse Reviver with Everleaf Forest but Lyre's Aperitif Dry works very well too.

Which non-alcoholic Orange Liqueur should I use in my Corpse Reviver No. 2?

Lyre's Orange Sec

There are some solid non-alcoholic triple sec alternatives and we highly recommend using Lyre's Orange Sec, Seedlip Grove 42, or Wilderton Lustre. These are all excellent orange liqueur replacements you can choose from.
