A little bit of Pernod or Herbsaint
1-1/2 ounces gin
1-1/2 ounces triple sec (Cointreau is best here)
1-1/2 ounces Lillet Blonde (an aromatized wine that’s usually found near the vermouths in the liquor store)
1-1/2 ounces lemon juice
Corpse Reviver No. 2
Swirl the Pernod or Herbsaint around two chilled cocktail glasses to coat the insides, and pour out the excess. Put the glasses in the freezer while you prepare the rest of the drink.
Combine all the other ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Fill the shaker with ice, cover a shake for a long count of ten.
Strain the drink into the glasses and serve.
