131/365/Food in 55/Cocktail Haiku

for the end of days and resurrections*

three gin, one vodka
one-half lillet blanc, shaken,
not stirred, lemon twist

the last word
green chartreuse, lime juice,
luxardo maraschino,
dry gin, equal parts

corpse reviver
gin, lillet, cointreau,
and lemon juice, equal parts,
with an absinthe rinse

*A rerun, but I am behind. Cheers, y’all.


  1. Yum. I need to try the corpse reviver.

  2. There are three types of corpse revivers. I don't think I've tried them all, but I like this gin one (although not as much as a vesper or last word!).

  3. You are the e.e. cummings of haiku. And aren't names such potent things: as soon as I read "corpse reviver" I immediately thought, "I have to try one of those."
