Episode 01: Austin Servant Girl Murders / Corpse Reviver #1

February 4, 2017

In 1885, Austin, Texas experienced a series of assaults and axe murders that brought the city into the national spotlight, for all the wrong reasons.  A killer began targeting black servants in the heart of the city.  Seven women and one man would end up dead by year’s end.  Though authorities tried many suspects for the murders, the case remains a mystery today.

This episode's drink is the Corpse Reviver #1, a popular hangover cure at the time of the Austin Servant Girl Murders:

  • 2 parts Brandy
  • 1 part Sweet Vermouth
  • 1 part Applejack

Shake with ice and strain into cocktail glass. Enjoy!
