Drink This: SpiritHouse’s Corpse Reviver No. 2


Published:

With a somewhat clandestine location at Adelaide and Portland, SpiritHouse is the latest addition to the west end’s sundown scene. The subterranean space is the work of Len Fragomeni, known around town as the owner of the Toronto Institute of Bartending. Head bartender Brad Gubbins serves up a roster of cocktails, including a barrel-aged Sazerac that comes in a bottle ($46), but the Corpse Reviver No. 2 ($15) is our drink of choice.

The drink blends Tanqueray gin with Lillet Blanc aperitif wine and Cointreau triple sec. Some fresh-squeezed lime juice and a rinse of Taboo absinthe finish it off.

With over 400 bottles to choose from, the bar has certainly arrived with a bang and can undoubtedly proclaim that there is, in fact, something for everyone.

SpiritHouse, 487 Adelaide St. W., 647-277-1187
