This cocktail gets less love than its more popular sibling, the Corpse Reviver No. 2, but that shouldn’t be the case: the No. 1 is exceptionally elegant. The warmth of the brandy and the apple flavor of the Calvados combine to make it a natural for autumn drinking, but I wouldn’t turn it down any other time of year.
