Doctor Funk

We’re off on a mysterious island adventure again. (Pack your Somerset Maugham.) As Mr. Bali Hai notes, there are a lot of recipes out there for this classic. Most of ’em have a lot of lime juice for my taste and sit cold on my liver. (Shudder.) Below is my own version with the citrus scaled down to half an ounce. It is friendlier with lemon, though lime gives it more bite. I like Mount Gay Eclipse for the Doctor.

Doctor Funk
  • 2 oz gold Barbados rum
  • 1/2 oz lemon or lime juice
  • 1/4 oz real pomegranate grenadine
  • 1 tsp pastis
  • soda to fill
Shake all ingredients except soda with ice cubes and pour unstrained into a chimney glass or slender mug, adding more ice cubes to fill if necessary. Top with soda.
