Corpse Reviver #2: Because version 1.0 wasn't potent enough.

Our top pick has both a great name and a fantastic flavor. A surprisingly light and tasty combination of gin, Lillet Blanc, Cointreau, and lemon juice with a dash of absinthe, the Corpse Reviver looks good with any costume.

Where to have it made for you: Presidio Social Club

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11

The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
