Lavender Corpse Reviver from Notch8 Restaurant and Bar

A fresh spring-inspired spin on the classic Corpse Reviver cocktail

Recipe for Lavender Corpse Reviver by Notch8 Restaurant and Bar

With National Cocktail Day right around the corner and the spring season finally arriving to Canada, Fairmont properties across the country have been mixing up a selection of spring-inspired cocktails that incorporate either florals or botanicals. 

Notch8 Restaurant and Bar at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver recently unveiled its newest creation, the Lavender Corpse Reviver—an update to the 1930s classic re-invented by Harry Craddock at the Savoy Hotel in London (which is also in the Fairmont Hotels and Resorts family). 

With the addition of lavender, Notch8’s rendition enhances the natural botanicals in the gin, which results in a mix that is both delicate and true to its original form.
