I prefer the Corpse Reviver No 2: equal parts gin, lemon juice,  Cointreau, Kina Lillet, and a dash of absinthe (I like a large "dash").

The 1930 Savoy Cocktail Book says "Four of these taken in swift succession will unrevive the corpse again".

And probably embalm the body as well.

You can't get Kina Lillet anymore. Closest is a vermouth called (something) Americano

Cocchi Americano. As used in the Vesper Martini, Corpse Reviver #2 and Old Etonian ... and doubtless other cocktails to boot.

Though no longer Kina, Lillet is available (e.g. from here https://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B005UXLCRM/007dossier-21), though it's now known as Lillet Blanc to differentiate it from Lillet Rouge which was launched later.

Of course, as a husband who had no qualms about purchasing "feminine hygiene" products for my other half, Lil-let has a whole other connotation!

Few things impress a woman more, in my experience, than helping out in that direction, especially on holiday where you remembered to pack a box or two and she forgot.

If youre buying feminine products, youre already past the stage where you need to impress them!   Grin

If youre buying for someone you hardly know...  youre probably Mayor of the Friendzone!

I fear the same when I meet a lass, that's why I don't mention the toy soldiers. Best to wait till after the 'very well, you can fart or use my loo' stage in the relationship to introduce her to the little lead men. Of course, she could then come back with her insane collecting habits and make you want to run for the hills!

Ha! Smiley In fact I forget I'm ginger, most of the time. I suppose it might come as a bit of a shock to people, when meeting in person for the first time, when they've previously envisioned me as a member of the black/brown/or blonde -haired majority. Though it does make it easier to find me ... I don't need to be wearing a carnation in my breast pocket, or carrying a rolled up newspaper. 'Alright luv. Just look for't ginger amongst crowd, an' yule 'av found me.'

There are benefits in keeping your wife impressed with your gentlemanly behaviour. Even if she likes your caveman side too.

There are definite benefits in not having a wife to impress at all!  Smiley
