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.
