Dr. Funk (Doug Winship)

1 12 oz Absinthe
1 14 oz Lime juice (roughly; "juice of two small limes")
12 oz Grenadine
2 oz Soda water
Build in a glass over cracked or crushed, including the shells of the spent limes, and top with soda.
Winship's attempt at recreating the original recipe, a stiff mix of lemon- or limeade and absinthe, served by the historical Dr. Funk to his patients in Polynesia. Some will prefer it with less lime juice.
