1 1⁄2 oz Brandy (Cheapo Cali brandy will do here.)
1 oz Apple brandy, Lairds (Use their applejack if you must.)
1⁄2 oz Gold rum (Mount Gay Black at 100 proof is a nice mixing gold overproof rum.)
1⁄2 oz Sweet vermouth, LaCuesta Rojo

Combine in mixing glass, stir for 37 seconds. strain into coupe, sip and be thankful.


Tweaking the classic Corpse Reviver #1 that Dan posted made this right for my taste today.


Stirred in desperation due to need for corpse reviving after New Year's Eve à la minute 1/1/12. Happy New Year to all!
